Pilates is for everyone. My clients range in age from 12 to 73. I work w/ athletes, other pilates instructors, those recovering from an injury, expecting and new moms, and of course those that just want a really good workout. 

Movement has always been the answer to my life's questions. Run, spin, yoga, dance, snowboard, surf- I love it all. I've always been a mover and it's how I keep myself feeling good: mind, body, and spirit. I found the Pilates Method 12 years ago while living in SF and it has changed my body and how I move for the better. It has also made all of the above better, stronger, and more fun. And now, since the birth of my daughter in 2014, I rely on The Method more than ever to keep strong and feeling good in my own skin.

My first certification is through Pilates of Cherry Creek in Denver w/ Hope Petrine who is Romana trained. In 2016 I completed the Masters program at Vintage Pilates led by Jay Grimes in Los Angeles. Jay Grimes is a first generation master instructor taught directly by Joseph Pilates. I have been teaching The Pilates Method for over a decade and continue to learn from those who were taught by Joseph Pilates himself or who studied w/ his direct students: Jay Grimes, Karen Frischmann, and Moses Urbano to name a few.

Joseph Pilates put it best, "Pilates develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind, and elevates the spirit." Nicole enjoys seeing those words manifest in her clients' work and loves witnessing the improvements that happen in their bodies.
