      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

      I had zero expectations leading up to this event. I knew I wanted to experience a mind body connection somewhere tropical and that’s what I got! I knew I wanted to have some new tools to take into this new year and break some old mindsets that have been holding me back, that’s what I got! I wanted to move my body differently and cut off distractions from the outside world, that’s what I got! I’ve never felt so aligned with my new intentions and supported as I worked through some of the old self limiting thoughts .The accommodations were beautifully rustic and the food was average, but that’s not why I went. I went to fine tune myself, my perspective and create new healthy habits, that’s exactly what I got and more! Bravo to everyone who helped set this new year on track for me. Ill be back, Ive already manifested it ;)

      Disorganized & disappointing, There was nothing related to longevity about this retreat. Eating at a buffet meals a day isn’t a 5 star experience. Being left for an hour in the hot sun along the side of a river waiting for transportation isn’t a 5 star experience. Not knowing any details about the waterfall excursion when asked 2x is not a 5 star experience. Not having bug spray for your guests not a 5 star experience. Not knowing who’s actually going on your retreat NOT a 5 star experience. The resort running out of towels not a 5 star experience. Over promises and undelivered
      By Cali L for BBBody&Soul | Longevity Retreat in Costa Rica on Jan 14, 2024
      Hello Carol, we are very sorry that this is your idea of a fabulous retreat that got 5 stars and amazing reviews from every single person on this trip. Regarding the organization, we were fully supportive in each step of your booking. We reacted very fast when, only the day before you were traveling, you sent us your flight details and we realized you were landing in the wrong airport. We showed full support while you were traveling solo, we spent time with you and we offered you dinner, the day before the retreat started. We treated you with compassion and support. The meals offered at buffet style were listed in the original contract, and the food was beyond amazing, offering a variety of fruits, vegetables and different form of proteins, at each meal. The waterfall hike was a very simple hike, we waited for transportation as part of the excursion, there was shade, and fresh fruits offered to everyone. We are sorry that this is your perception of the whole experience and we are quite surprised about your review. Hopefully, you learnt that there is no secret to longevity, but longevity is sisterhood, community, and how you perceive life.

      My experience in Costa Rica with Brooke Burke and Elisa Magni was incredibly enriching and transformative. The combination of mindful practices, body movement , communal connection, and transformative activities was without a doubt a valuable investment in my personal well-being. Brooke asks some very important reflective questions that helped me tune into my core being, as well as get really honest and accountable with myself . My favorite activities included the breath-work ceremony, group I AM manifestion affirmations , mirror work and the transformative letter writing . Lastly , and perhaps the most invaluable aspect of this retreat is the deep connection and communal bond that formed between myself. Brooke , Elisa and ALL of the women attending. In addition, the resort is absolutely beautiful. The ocean is perfectly salty, warm and blissful, the food is extremely fresh with lots of vegetarian and vegan options. All of which I thoroughly enjoyed ! We also got a very generous swag bag filled with all of Brooke and Elisa‘s favorite things , ranging from hats , work-out clothes, candles and journals ! And the list goes on ! I am grateful that I choose to invest in myself and took this journey with Brooke and Elisa . I cannot think of a better way to begin the new year. I retuned home with the tools needed to keep vibrating at this higher frequency. I AM energetically lighter , I AM every woman, and I AM ready for an extraordinary 2024 .

      Let me just say, if you are in a point of your life seeking transformation and restoration this experience is for you. Brook created such a safe supported space which allowed us all to be open and available for growth. I came home from this retreat refreshed, focused and calm. I have a better sense of who I am and what I want to experience moving forward. Forever grateful for this community and in awe of the dedication Brooke has to each and everyone of us. Her work ethic is extraordinary and her level to connect to each of us is unparalleled. Stop what you’re doing and take a moment to consider this opportunity for yourself. You deserve all the good things this retreat will curate. So much love and gratitude.

      An amazing experience! So blessed to have had the opportunity to attend such a transformational event. Elisa was the best and was always there for any questions. Brooke focused not only on body wellness but also teaching a mind and body connection and left me with tools that I’ll be able to make part of my life. I made connections with many women who I believe will be lifelong soul sisters. I definitely recommend!
