Wendy has a 40 year background in holistic health, and lifelong studies and collaborations with distinguished pioneers in Pilates, yoga, Structural Integration Bodywork and Somatic Arts and Sciences.
Her studies have revolved around the pursuit of illuminating and unifying the universal core principles that underlie Pilates, yoga, and all great body/mind practices, with a vision of having participants in her workshops discover how to be vitally alive and self-healing, just as Joseph Pilates envisioned in Return to Life.
Wendy has studied Pilates with 5 of the Pilates Elders, beginning with Romana Kryzanowska, then with Kathy Grant, Mary Bowen, Ron Fletcher and Lolita San Miguel. Additionally, her extensive yoga background, and studies with Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, Emilie Conrad, Susan Harper, Judith Aston, Tom Myers, The Guild for Structural Integration, Hubert Godard, and Phillip Beach, give Wendy a unique voice in the Pilates Community. Her expanded 3Core Connections® Perspective of Lower, Central and Upper Cores, honors the body’s experience of “Core as relationship… with gravity, ourselves, one another and our environment.” When we live deeply and fully in our bodies, we are able to connect to infinite movement, as well as the stillness of the center, discovering how that shapes our physiology, psychology, and personality.
Wendy teaches nationally and internationally, including Balanced Body: Pilates on Tour, was a founding member of the Pilates Method Alliance, is a second generation PMA®-CPT, and a Mentor in Balanced Body’s Passing the Torch Mentoring Program. She was featured in the July 2013 issue of Pilates Style Magazine.
