Billie

Billie

Billie began her love affair with Pilates over eight years ago and quickly noticed changes in her body. Billie, being the mother of a 26 year old, was shocked that her body looked even better than when she was 18 years old. She quickly realized that Pilates is also not just about building lean muscle but building the connections that make everyday activities flow easier.  Her life seemed to change with Pilates and everything became easier. She was amazed by what the body can do when that mindful movement connection is made. 

She believes the mind/ body/breath focus on Pilates is a truly healthy way to work the body as a whole and extremely uplifting for the spirit. Two of her teachers suggested that she should train to become a teacher and she started her training with Pure Pilates.

She is trained in the Body Arts and Science method of Pilates.   She received her certification at Pure Pilates studio in Orange County and completed a comprehensive course including 500 hours Pilates reformer and mat Pilates She got her spring board certifications by balance body.  She has been teaching for over 7 years and 4 years ago she completed her certification in pre and post-natal Pilates and pelvic floor rehabilitation with Stephanie Forster at Preggo Pilates. She also attended the lecture on diastasis recti and pelvic floor dysfunction. She is trained to focus on symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of diastasis.

She moved to Texas last year from California and open her first studio at Humble.

Pilates is a passion for Billie that she hopes to ignite in those around her. She is continually excited about and inspired by the broad spectrum of the population that Pilates relates to and how it can be tailored to address individual needs while its principles are infallible and never changing.
