Julie first discovered the benefits of pilates while majoring in Ballet Performance at the University of Utah. Pilates is the perfect compliment to dance education because of its focus on lengthening muscles and practicing proper form and posture. After graduating with her Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2003, Julie moved to California to dance with San Diego Ballet. Shortly thereafter, she began work in a physical therapy clinic and was introduced to STOTT PILATES® as a form of exercise rehabilitation. She instantly knew she wanted to become a certified instructor. Julie received her certification from STOTT PILATES® in 2006 and is continuing her education through ongoing course work and workshops. She truly believes in the power of pilates for overall fitness, injury prevention, and improved body awareness as we learn to carry the STOTT PILATES® principles with us through our everyday lives.
