Emily was introduced to Pilates through her dance training and was enamored by how the method could help her gain strength and feel more empowered in her body. Later, when Emily injured her back she returned to Pilates for rehabilitation. Her Pilates experience led her to a fascination of anatomy and how the body functions. She loves to share her knowledge and curiosity with others.
Emily has been teaching Pilates since 2010. She is a fully Certified STOTT Pilates Instructor. She is experienced in teaching injury management and rehabilitation, and has worked extensively with an array of health conditions including: osteoporosis, arthritis, disk herniation, sciatica, scoliosis, low back pain, and pre/post-natal conditioning. Emily also enjoys training high-level athletes. She has worked with dancers, runners, skiers, golfers, swimmers, cyclists and other athletes to help them develop beneficial movement patterns and avoid injury. She believes Pilates is a wonderful way for people of any fitness level to gain strength and ease in movement.
Most recently Emily has become an Axis Syllabus teacher candidate. Through the Axis Syllabus lexicon Emily is researching optimal movement patterns and pedagogical skills. When she isn’t in the Pilates studio she can be found dancing, playing capoeira, and enjoying time outdoors. Fallow her at emilyannejones.com
