Debra is no stranger to Pilates and fitness. For 20 years, she has been an avid exercise enthusiast. Her passion for health and activity, coupled with her belief in group training, led her in the direction of becoming a Pilates instructor. Her Master's Degree keeps her marketing career busy during the day, but she always has the time to guide participants to build upon their Pilates practice. Debra earned her Pilates certification at the NYC Power Pilates facility. She enjoys teaching Mat I and Matt II classes, and has earned extended certificates in "Mat with Theraband � Technique" and the "Art of Touch and Cue." Additional workshops include "Mat with Magic Circle and Weights" and "Pilates for Seniors." She continues to earn continuing education credits to always provide fresh and improved movements. Debra is a vibrant teacher determined to make each class unique and fun, maintaining the integrity of the Joseph Pilates style. She will often include props such as the Ring, theraband and small physioball. She is capable of conveying knowledge of the exercises while offering modified movements to accommodate all levels. She excels in concise verbal cues with voice variation, coupled with appropriate modeling. As stated by Debra, "I believe Pilates is a fantastic way to increase flexibility, improve your posture, find your internal rhythm, and safely condition your body."
