Andrea Giramita – Instructor
I’ve been a Pilates student since 2007 and just fell in love with it. After taking classes for years, I quit my full-time job to be a stay at home mom. I decided to bring my love of Pilates to others in 2010 when I became a BASI certified Instructor. I love working at Pilates by Design in a beautiful studio where people can come to be healthy and happy with what the studio has to offer. I love to make my clients work hard and break a sweat. Through hard work we can all become stronger and more fit!
Wency Luke – Instructor
Wency discovered Pilates when she walked by a Pilates studio in her local gym and wondered what the people were doing on these strange pieces of equipment. After walking by the studio a few more times, she signed up for her first class and was instantly hooked! She credits Pilates for an increase of strength, flexibility, coordination, and balance, but also for enhancing her mind-body connection.
In June 2012, Wency started her comprehensive Pilates teaching training through Body Arts and Science International. She is looking forward to sharing her love and benefits of Pilates with you!
Rachel Peña – Instructor
I first discovered Pilates in 2004 as a freshman in college. Soon I began to work one on one with an instructor and continued taking classes for six years before relocating back to northern California. Physical fitness has always been an important aspect of my life and Pilates has proved to be the perfect addition to my daily fitness routine and it has allowed me to connect with my body in a more meaningful way.Through continued practice I have not only seen an improvement in my posture but in my flexibility, strength, and overall physical health . It has always been my passion to share my love of fitness with others- it seemed to be natural step for me to pursue my teaching certification through Body Arts and Science International in 2012. Sharing Pilates with others is an extremely rewarding experience, each day I find that I am more and more passionate about helping each student realize and achieve their goals through Pilates, whatever they may be.
