Studio Newsletter – June 2017

New Instructors at MLS
Corrie believes it is the nuances of Pilates that facilitate deep, restorative, and strengthening results; making it a unique and universally applicable compliment to other specialty sports, as well as an important aid in performing everyday tasks.
As a Pilates instructor, she strives to provide her students a visceral experience of these subtleties through tactile cues and intentional imagery. She is committed to her growth as a successful communicator, and is honored to be doing so as a certified instructor at Maiden Lane.
You will likely pick up on her dance background through her teaching style, which is what brought her into the practice almost 10 years ago. She draws from her education as a dance major at Chapman University and California Institute of the Arts, and was officially certified through BASI’s comprehensive training with a dance specialization.
Corrie will be teaching classes and offering appointments Mondays – Fridays. Book an appt. with her here.
Brigitte’s love of Pilates centers around how it shapes you in mind-body-spirit by creating strength, confidence, flexibility and a sounder, more empowered self. She encourages her clients to explore the inner connection between breath and conscious movement in an attempt to deepen their sense of wellness in health and fitness.
Brigitte has been passionate about movement both professionally and personally as a dancer, musical theater actress, and as a model. She has a BA in social psychology from UCLA and Pilates certification from The Physical Mind Institute. She has immersed herself in hip, lumbar, shoulder stabilization, pre/postnatal workshops. Studying with both first generation Joseph Pilates classical Master Instructors and second generation Master Instructors, Brigitte learned to blend the art and scientific principles of Pilates and continues to evolve and fine-tune her practice.
Her background also includes opening West Los Angeles’s first Spinning and Pilates Studio in 1997, where her success allowed her to expand and move to Venice where she built an established fitness community and resided for the last 20 years.
Brigitte looks forward to getting to know the San Francisco Maiden Lane Pilates Community and is excited to call it her new home. Sign up for one of her classes or book an appointment with her here..
