Candice CzosnykaCandice Czosnyka

Candice often struggles to devote time for herself and fitness, even more so today with two toddlers. Over the years, she’s sought out the most efficient ways to exercise: required the least amount of time and produced the best results. In 2008, she discovered Pilates and realized she found what she was looking for and so much more! In 2011, she earned her 480-hr Pilates Comprehensive Instructor Certification through Pilates Chicago. She enjoys teaching clients of all ages & skill levels, often focusing on technical form with reminders of mind/body connection, and loves that Pilates exercises are adaptable to everyone. She believes Pilates and understanding of the human body is a continuous learning experience and she is a lifelong student. “A few well-designed movements, properly performed in a balanced sequence, are worth hours of doing sloppy calisthenics or forced contortion.” -Joseph Pilates.

Eileen HarrisEileen Harris

Explore the Pilates Method with Eileen, who will inspire you to breathe more fully and move more intuitively. Eileen was exposed to Pilates at a young age, but never practiced regularly until after graduating from Fairfield University, where she studied Creative Writing. Eileen was a rower for 6 years until the stress of repeated motion on her body was too much for her to continue. Finding her self consistently sick, tired and depressed, Eileen has found that only a regular practice of Pilates has helped.

She believes in the power of functional movement to promote overall healing of the body. As Joseph Pilates said, “Pilates develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind, and elevates the spirit.”

Annette GryniewiczAnnette Gryniewicz

Annette received her certification from The Frog Temple, where she learned classic Pilates form. She has been teaching for 15 years now, and is passionately committed to the empowerment of mind, body and spirit that Pilates offers. Annette considers herself lucky to have found Pilates and she aims to share the power of it to transform lives with as many people as she can. She has successfully transformed herself from a 190lb couch potato to her ideal weight and learned to find stability. Her teaching style is an all-embracing, compassionate approach that truly understands what it’s like to be a beginner at something, while also fueling the challenge to a better body.

Michelle Savoy

If you are looking for proof that Pilates makes a difference in your life and in your body, Michelle can attest to it. After studying Pilates for many years, she took a break to have two children. Just over two years later, she found herself 60 lbs overweight, with back pain and struggling to get back into shape, while juggling motherhood and a big corporate career.

Thankfully a return to regular Pilates training not only gave her peace and clarity of mind, an escape from a hectic life to focus on an hour of “me” time, but also overall body strength and toning. She calls it her “tummy tuck by Pilates” and is happy to share both her challenges and her success with you.

If you have been thinking about giving Pilates a try or are a student looking to come back, Michelle will partner with you on getting results.
