As a Pilates Instructor, Why Did I Choose to Join Activcore?

I officially joined Activcore's teaching team in Atlanta this month. But it feels like I've been here longer as I have been studying both GYROTONIC® and the Redcord suspension system to implement into my performance training sessions. I would like to take this moment to answer some questions so that you can get to know me better.

Why did I choose to join the Activcore team? I first came to Activcore as a performance client working with Emily Christianson at the Druid Hills studio in Atlanta, Georgia. Emily is such a wonderful teacher, and the atmosphere of the Activcore studio is so warm and inviting. I have taught movement for a long time and that isn’t always the case. I was so impressed with my experience as a client, that I knew I wanted to teach for the company.

What do I love about being a Pilates instructor? I love sharing the Pilates method. It’s changed my relationship to my body, and it continues to inspire me daily. When I get to see the lightbulb moment for a client who feels a certain connection for the first time, that is incredibly gratifying. I want them to fall in love with the work as much as I have.

What is one of my interests/hobbies outside of work? I’m a passionate animal rights advocate, and I love to explore vegan restaurants around Atlanta as well as practice cooking delicious plant based meals at home.

How do you contact me? If you would like to schedule a performance training session with me, please contact Activcore Druid Hills.
