Group Reformer Class


This class is taught by:

Ana Debasa

Ana Debasa was born in Santa Cruz California, and moved to LA when she was 18. She dabbled in acting for a little while, but her real passion has always been Animals. She started working with horses at a young age. It was through a horseback riding accident that she found Pilates. It was through Pilates that she was able to heal herself. She then became certified in 1999 at Perfectly Fit, a Classical Pilates Studio. She worked at Perfectly Fit for a few years before coming to Mind-Body Fitness Pilates Studio in 2001, and has worked here ever since! Ana also worked as a vet tech at East Valley Veterinary Clinic as well as running her own animal rescue for many years, One Dog Rescue. Mind-Body Fitness clients have adopted many of her dogs. She has since left Dog and Cat Rescue, and is pursuing her first Love, Horses.

Sean Colley

After living with a back injury for several years, and surgery that left him with titanium screws in his hip, Sean started to explore yoga and Pilates to help remedy his pain. Sean was introduced to the classical Pilates method and began attending classes. Reaping the benefits of Pilates (such as greatly reduced back pain, better posture, and overall wellness through mind-body connection), Sean made the decision to enroll in Whole Body Method's Pilates Instructor Program. The program brought Sean to a whole new level of understanding of Pilates and has changed his life in many positive ways. Sean completed his certification at Whole Body Method Pilates in January 2014. Sean is a firm believer in the advantages of a routine Pilates practice. He is dedicated to sharing the benefits of classical Pilates with others. He is keen to work with people from all different backgrounds that suffer with pain and discomfort, and want to explore Pilates as a viable means of healing and strengthening the body.

Abigail Eiland

Abigail Eiland was first introduced to Pilates through her sister, as she rehabilitated from a bad back injury. Not only did her back get better, but she looked great! Coming from a performing background Abigail had limited experience with Pilates, but once she began studying seriously, she was hooked. Abigail was certified through Pilates Sports Center, Encino CA. in 2011, studying both Classical and West Coast Style Pilates. She believes that Pilates can be useful in every aspect of your life, and tailors her sessions to be fun, challenging, and positive.
