Stephanie was born and raised in Southern California, where she was a competitive swimmer for 12 years. After graduating from UC Santa Barbara and completing her swimming career she began practicing yoga. After practicing for 5 years she became a certified yoga instructor and taught 3 years at CorePower Yoga before meeting her husband and relocating to Lodi.
Looking for something new she began taking Pilates classes with Nancy and immediately fell in love. Pilates completely transformed her body (which was great after having twins!). She completed her Reformer trainings in May 2015 and is currently in the process of completing the comprehensive Balanced Body Pilates teacher training program.
I never grow tired of practicing Pilates! In 2008, I completed a Mat Pilates training course with DeWitt Pilates and I was intrigued by the mind and body concept of working out, so much so that I wanted to learn more. This led me to discover Stream Line Pilates in Salt Lake City UT. This is where I completed my Instructors Certification. This was a very satisfying and challenging because it was a 9 month program of hands on and written lessons that left me excited for the future and I’ve been teaching ever since. I continue to develop my education and teaching skills through classes and hands on interaction with other instructors. In 2015, I also completed a Balance Body Barre certification to help round out my programs. I love teaching barre and find the music adds an amazing energy to the work. I strive for a holistic approach to fitness and bring all I’ve learned to my clients. I continue to be amazed how applicable Pilates is to every body, no matter the age, condition or gender. I am a lifelong lover of Pilates because it takes more than just lifting weights to get a Pilates Body!
Heidi began her movement education as a young child studying many forms of dance. Later she attained a place in the 4 year intensive training course at Laine Theatre of the Arts in London. She gained teaching qualifications in Classical Ballet and Modern Theatre Dance before going on to dance professionally for 16 years traveling all over the world. Originally she began studying Pilates to address old injuries, finding it a natural transition from the dance world. In 2006 she began the Comprehensive Instructor Training Program at Turning Point Studios under Master instructor Nora St. John, now head of the education program for Balanced Body University. Following certification she was asked to teach there. After taking a break to expand her family and relocating to Lodi, Heidi returned to Pilates teaching at The Pump House in Walnut Grove, On Point Pilates Studio in Elk Grove and lately adding Park West Studios right here in Lodi.
