Diane Lester is a professional dancer, actor, singer, and choreographer residing in New York City. She first discovered Pilates in college as cross-training to complement her dancing, and it immediately clicked with her: she loved the control and challenging internal adjustments it asked of her. In 2014, she was introduced to Classical Pilates and its apparatus at Todd Rosenlieb Dance in Norfolk, Virginia, where she practiced through weekly private sessions for two years. During this time, she saw how truly life-changing the system can be! She recovered from and managed dance-related micro-injuries, and felt total change, rejuvenation, and balance in her body; not just in the studio, but in her daily life! Diane began her Power Pilates teacher training in 2019, and is currently working toward her Comprehensive certification.
