Anita comes from a background of dance in classical and contemporary styles. She has been teaching Pilates for over 11 years, having graduated from Boditree’s comprehensive program in 2002. In 2004, she graduated with distinction from Long Beach Dance Conditioning’s Advances in Pilates Technique training under Master Instructor, Marie-Jose Blom. This deeply added to her existing experience and prompted further study under Eric Franklin. In 2005, she certified in the Franklin Method, emphasizing postural and biomechanical imagery techniques. Imagery supports her work in movement re-patterning and expanding clients access to movement potential.
Anita received her certificate in Laban Movement Analysis (2008) through the Laban Institute of Movement Studies (LIMS). She had the rare opportunity to assist and guest instruct on the Laban/Bartenieff and Somatic Studies Canada (LSSC) Vancouver program under the Direction of Janet Kaylo (2009/10). LMA provides a broad perception through which to observe, cue, and dialogue about movement.
Most recently (2011) she studied with Elise Miller, renowned Yoga for Scoliosis teacher and certified in Restorative Yoga under Wendy Eyton.
She is currently teaching at Line 5 Pilates as well as working with clients who have scoliosis in conjunction with Martha Carter’s Twisted Outreach Project.
