Sharla has always loved dance and movement and how the body adapts beautifully to move itself through space. She began teaching aerobics in 1989 (ACE certified) noticing how many people loved to exercise but were sidelined with injuries. She became a personal trainer in 1998, opening a small gym in 1999. Dissatisfied with the current methods of rehabilitating “weekend warriors,” Sharla searched for better techniques. After experiencing her first Pilates class on the reformer she knew she had found the answer to helping people learn how to move again, freely and painlessly. Sharla entered the Core Dynamics Certification program founded by Eve Gentry, who studied under Joseph Pilates in the early 60’s.
I love teaching people how to move and love watching how the body responds to Pilates training and becomes stronger, flexible and graceful.
