I have always been active since I can remember. I loved any sport that my older siblings were doing at the time. Gymnastics, Dance, Swimming, Diving, Soccer you name it. I went on to play soccer and run track at Mississippi State University and finished my last two years of college playing soccer at Marshall University in West Virginia. In 2000 I graduated with a BA in Adult Fitness and moved to Atlanta to start my fitness career as a Personal Trainer. In 2002 I moved to South Orange County, California were I was first introduced to Pilates and immediately feel in love.


In 2002 I started my pursuit to become a Pilates Instructor and by 2006 I was a fully certified Advanced Level STOTT PILATES Instructor.  I did not stop there, in 2009 I became a STOTT PILATES Instructor Trainer. I am also a Pilates Method Alliance (PMA) Certified Trainer and an American Council of Exercise (ACE) Certified Personal Trainer.


In 2012 my daughter was diagnosed with Leukemia. As a result, I was unable to make it to the studio to do my daily equipment based Pilates workouts. I had a Suspension Trainer at home that I used regularly to do fitness-based workouts. I started playing around with the traditional Pilates equipment and mat based exercises on my suspension trainer and to my surprise many exercises were more challenging on the Suspension Trainer than the Pilates equipment. That is how the Pilates Suspension Method started.


When I am not teaching workshops or training clients I love spending time with my husband Greg and our two children Raelyn and Renick.



What is the Pilates Suspension Method?

The Pilates Suspension Method (PSM) combines traditional and contemporary mat Pilates and equipment-based Pilates exercises and performs them on any type of suspension apparatus. 


Each PSM exercise is Pilates rooted and is also done in many of the traditional Pilates series.  The PSM is designed to teach in a group or one-on-one setting

What a fantastic experience! An inspirational yoga teacher in Rebecca Hannah who led amazing classes & workshops, an incredible group of yogis who brought with them such positive energy, well organised activities in paddle boarding & hiking, delicious Italian food and beautiful accommodation at Casa di Sale, Carloforte in the most incredible island of San Pietro. Thank you Elisa & Yogando for organising such a beautiful retreat. When's the next one?
By Francesca J for Level up your PRACTICE on 22 Sep, 2022
Yogando Retreats review Yogando Retreats organised this trip very well, as it was almost an all forms of transport to get to the location (plane, ferry, shuttle, car), they gave us all the information we needed to get there. Communication was clear but perhaps all the transfers and petrol should have been included in the price so the only thing we had to worry about was the airfare and extra excursions. In terms of the extra excusions it would have been nice to know about them before we actually got to the retreat but luckily the spontaneous organisation of these excursions worked out. I was disappointed that we never got to do the breath work or meditation that was mentioned in the itinerary, as I was really looking forward to that part of the evening. Paola Pilates review Paola is a lovely young woman and I was a little concerned at first as she is a little introvert and it took her awhile to open up and talk with the guests, but in the end she opened up, and made people feel welcomed and amazing, especially after her morning lessons. I thought Paola's lessons were very good and I'm happy that she only used her music in the first lesson, because with the ambience of nature surrounding us she really didn't need music at all and her voice is particularly soft, so it was better to hear her cues as well without music drowing out her voice. Paola's abdominal workshop was a nice touch especially for those guests who didn't have an understanding of how to be aware and connect with their abdominals during a Pilates lesson. Casa di Sale review I absolutely loved this little rustic and raw Villa, it felt like home and Nadia makes you feel so welcomed into her home. I stayed in the big tent and slept comfortably but sleeping 4 days in a tent is enough for me. If the retreat was any longer I would have liked a room. I think the tent accommodation could do with some little bean bags outside the tent on the deck to sit on so you can read a book, or just have a little snooze, but swaying in the hammock outside the tent was very relaxing. If you are sharing a tent and the hammock is occupied, the other person has no chill out space other than the common area which is a beautiful space to hang out but sometimes people like to have their space so maybe the common area doesn't give people that space they need. Mosquitoes were only a problem the first night and once I understood to fumigate the tent before sundown I had no problems. LOVED LOVED LOVED the outdoor shower!! Oh and a pool would have been nice to have a dip in during the day and in the evening under the stars. Food review OMG the food was delicious, I wanted to take Nadia and Rossella home with me. It was so healthy, nutritious and flavoursome and I liked that it was more plant based and that there was no alcohol offered. A little suggestion for after the Pilates or a Yoga class that a nice glass or shot of some healthy juice concoction was ready for drinking right after the lesson would have been nice to give you a little boost and to rehydrate you. Excursions review Sound healing was a great experience, language barrier was a little off as I don't think they knew how to express themselves and their method as they were not fluent in English. I loved how it was performed under the stars. SUP was fun, 30-45mins would have been enough and may I suggest not to organise dinner in the town afterwards as it would have been nice to have a shower to wash the salt off but in saying that we were all ready to pay the 1 euro for the 20 second shower if they had not changed the SUP location point. Other comments Having Paola and Elisa joining us for the lessons, brunch/dinner, participating in the excursions and generally hanging out and also having them and Nadia driving us around the island was a real personal touch that you can't get with big group retreats so it felt more special, intimate and connected. We were also very lucky to have a great bunch of girls who all got along nicely. A truly special experience, and exactly what I needed. Thank you, Yvette
