Anita began her Pilates practice in Laguna Beach CA after healing from a back injury with using Pilates and she fell in love. When not teaching she can be found on the beach building sandcastles with her kiddos or playing in the water. She loves traveling with my family and creating new memories.

If I had to choose a favorite I would say Leg circles and coordination. However, I always love to add a child's pose into practice to the end of class.
Anita instructs the following:
Mat Pilates is designed to improve strength and flexibility through a series of floor exercises using only body weight. It focuses on strengthening the muscles of the hips, back, abdominals and glutes, or what is known as the powerhouse. Mat Pilates will tone and tighten your entire core, as well as your legs and arms, giving you a long lean look. Variations and modifications are given so that all levels are challenged.
