Nichole first came to the practice of Pilates as a professional dancer and massage therapist in 1997. The Pilates principles of posture and dynamic alignment presented an arena of vast healing potential and transformation that guided her educational path and experience. She completed the Pilates teacher training program with Marie-Jose Bloom-Lawrence of Long Beach Dance Conditioning in 1998. As a Pilates instructor Nichole continues to deepen her knowledge of the Pilates principles today. In 2000 she became an apprentice for four years alongside Dr. Kevin Michael D.C. founder of Orthokinetics Remodeling; a hands-on approach that utilizes the body's electrical and myofascial system in relation to structural stability and wellness. This experience gave her a unique understanding of the body's integral system of healing within a clinical setting. Nichole is a Master Trainer for the Pilates Sports Center Teacher Training Program. Nichole is a certified white belt trainer of the Nia technique and loves to share in the joy of movement and the expression of one's authentic self through dance. She is a level one certified trainer of the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® and through the grace of all of these modalities she is dedicated to inspiring intelligent movement that integrates & awakens awareness to enhance the quality of LIFE!
