When possible, group mat classes will return to the Downtown Dance/Art Space, while privates and duets will be available in Roxann's home studio.
Roxann is PMA certified and trained in classical Pilates with a background in a variety of dance forms, from ballroom to hip hop. She was first introduced to Pilates through her high school dance teacher and immediately fell in love. Roxann completed a BA in Performing Arts and Social Justice with an emphasis in Dance at the University of San Francisco during which she choreographed, performed, and taught dance both locally and internationally. After graduating, Roxann moved to Boulder, CO to complete an Advanced Pilates Teacher Training program through The Pilates Center. Throughout the intensive, year long training program Roxann experienced first-hand the benefits of Pilates, which proved the only successful remedy to a 5-year-old back injury. Roxann taught Pilates in San Francisco for 3 years and is thrilled to now be teaching in her hometown.
"Pilates changed my life and sharing its benefits with others has become my passion."
