Heidi Miller, B.S. Exercise & Sport Science

 

Heidi has a life-long love of exercise and has been sharing her knowledge and insight, through teaching, for nearly 20 years. She’s enjoyed working as a personal trainer for over 8 years, 4 of which were within a physical therapy clinic specializing in spine rehabilitation. She has been teaching Classical Pilates for 10 years.

After an accident left Heidi with pain from compression fractures in 7 vertebrae, she tried Pilates for the first time. That first session was an inspiration and she knew immediately that Pilates was going to make a big difference in her life. The healing process initially took 2 years of hard work but, 12 years later, Pilates has continued to give Heidi a life free from pain. In fact, she felt her total recovery was so miraculous that she decided to dedicate herself to learning Pilates and teaching others. She received her Pilates certification in 2005 from the prestigious and rigorous Pilates Center of Boulder after 3 years of training.

Heidi enjoys working with men and women all body types and fitness levels, especially with postpartum clients and those experiencing issues from low back pain. She is a military veteran and the mother of two very active boys ages 3 and 5.

JaniceJanice White, B.S.

 

Janice graduated with a B.S. in Criminal Justice/Criminology.  She found her way to the Pilates method after years of searching to find a fitness method that provided all the components of a great workout while also lending a sense of well-being.  After a misdiagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis and ongoing ambiguous medical issues,  Janice realized more profoundly not only how the fitness components of strength, stretch, stamina, and stability that the Pilates method provides benefit her in her everyday life but also how the mind-body connection keeps her grounded and connected to the needs of her body.

Janice received her training through Power Pilates, NY and is certified in Core Mat I and II.  She is dedicated to sharing her love of Pilates with others!
