45-minute live Zoom classes from the comfort of your own home! 

Hi, I'm Dana and movement education has been my passion for over 20 years. I know movement is NOT one size fits all and I want to help you achieve your wellness goals! It is important to me to create an inclusive and welcoming environment for you to learn, ask questions, and of course, work hard.

Join me for FREE Pilates Pro Chair Classes! I am offering beginner classes and all levels, so there is something for everyone.

I am a comprehensively trained Pilates instructor who happens to Loooove her Pro chair and I want to inspire you to get the most out of this exceptional piece of fitness equipment.

I will offer modifications and progressions so there will be options for your body and fitness level.

Have injuries, concerns, or just questions before class starts? Then come early! I will open the zoom class 10 minutes early so we can all chat and get to know one another.  Feel free to also email me any questions you may have ahead of time.

I also encourage questions after class so no need to rush off.  Can't wait to see you soon!



"I have taken many classes over my years of practice. Being new to Zoom and having never met Dana in person, I was not too sure what to expect from our sessions. I now recommend her to all my friends and family! Her teaching surpasses all of my expectations and I am now a Pilates Lifer with Dana!"
