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.

 

Genevieve Lee

Genevieve Lee received her certification from Body Arts and Science International (BASI), in February 2012. As a former dancer and yogini, Genevieve developed a keen eye for alignment and a solid understanding of movement. She first discovered Pilates after seeking alternative ways to treat a chronic knee injury. It was only after regularly doing Pilates that she was finally pain free. This life changing experience and the encouragement of her teachers led her to pursue a career in Pilates. She hopes that she can help her clients find the same mind body connection and fulfillment through Pilates that she has. Genevieve enjoys working with students of all levels and abilities.

Liam Burke

Liam began as a dancer in The Australian Ballet and worked his way to London, Off-Broadway and Broadway in dance companies and Musical Theatre. He is a PMA certified Classical Pilates instructor and has worked for studios, physiotherapists and chiropractors including Beverly Hills Posture and Rehabilitation. Liam was fully certified at Whole Body Method in 2007 by Nigel Sampson, Director. Liam strives to make each workout unique, catering to the client's needs while using his dance career to make it an energizing experience. He has taught across America, in London, and Australia and has worked with a host of elite athletes, professional dancers and celebrity clients.

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. When she is not teaching, Abigail is a working actress and singer.

Natalie Frost

Natalie Frost started gymnastics and dance at the age of six and has always felt the need to be active and connected to her body. She first discovered Pilates during college in New Hampshire, and was instantly drawn to it's emphasis on posture and form. She became an AFAA certified Personal Trainer in 2010 after helping friends and family make healthier choices and soon thereafter started taking mat Pilates workshops and teaching group classes. Natalie successfully ran her own Personal Training business in Providence, RI before relocating to Los Angeles and beginning her studies with Stott Pilates at John Garey Fitness in Long Beach. She completed her Intensive Reformer course in April 2015 and Cadillac, Chair and Barrel the following August, and now focuses exclusively on Pilates. In her teaching she strives to combine athletic strength with the grace and finesse of control, encouraging her clients to take a long-term approach to their wellness. In her free time Natalie enjoys hiking, yoga, photography and creative writing.
