Abbey found Pilates over a decade ago as a student and fitness model in
New York City. She fell in love with the intense mind-body connection
to reduce stress and increase focus. As an athlete growing up she constantly challenged her body and played through many injuries.
Pilates offered a practice to work through these injuries and increase awareness of weaknesses.
She became passionate about learning everything the system had to offer from classical to contemporary.
Abbey is a third generation teacher.
She received a mat certification from Power Pilates in NYC and a full certification from The Sheppard Method Pilates Teacher Training Program in Los Angeles under Justin Cook and Risa Sheppard, from the Ron Fletcher lineage. Abbey loves helping her clients get deeper in the basic exercises and challenge their limits by building on the fundamentals.
She works to ensure her clients understand the purpose of the exercise while guiding them to find the muscle groups targeted.
Abbey helps her clients improve strength, flexibility, balance and movement efficiency. She is intense, but fun, loves teaching and has a great time with her clients!!
