When Emmeline's doctor recommended Pilates, she had no idea that an entirely new career would come with it. Feeling energized and strengthened after her classes, she realized she needed to make Pilates a permanent part of her life. So Emmeline quit her job in beauty and online advertising to seek out a more fulfilling career. She subsequently enrolled in the Whole Body Method Classical Pilates Certification program and learned the technique thoroughly and precisely. She absolutely loves helping others experience the same benefits she discovered, both physically & mentally.
In her free time, Emmeline loves to travel and is a serial hobbyist having taken classes on everything from improv to computer programming to welding.
Since the moment I learned to crawl, I don’t think I’ve ever stopped moving. Growing up in California, I quickly realized that fitness is essential to getting the most out of an active outdoors (or indoor!) lifestyle. In school, I played field hockey, soccer and softball, and as if that was somehow not enough, I ran 2 miles every day. I’ve been a practitioner of yoga, Cardio Barre, Gyrotonics and CrossFit training, all of which have terrific benefits, but I have found Pilates to be the best method for attaining genuine whole-body fitness and acquiring a healthy body awareness. I have an extensive education in nutrition and love to share this knowledge with my clients as a complement to the Pilates results. In addition to helping others achieve their fitness goals, I put what people have called my “infectious enthusiasm” to use as a successful infomercial hostess and actress. My core belief and my approach to Pilates is that fitness, like life itself, should be fun.

That is when she realized that human body is a bottomless well that is waiting to be discovered and challenged.
