Julia was born and raised in New York City. She has taught pilates throughout the city since 2005 in both private and group settings. She received a mat certification through the Kane School of Core Integration, and a fully certified instructor through Power Pilates. She has taught barre, TRX, and yoga.
Julia has enjoyed an active career as a modern dancer and choreographer in New York City, touring and performing for over 10 years. She firmly believes that her dance background has truly enhanced her teaching. And likewise, the more she studied pilates, the stronger she became as a dancer.
She has been so inspired by her clients over the years. She loves seeing clients do things that they weren't able to do when they first started taking pilates. She is just amazed by how much her students grow and progress every day!
Julia moved to Rockland in 2016 and looks forward to moving, stretching and working out clients on this side of the bridge!
