Dolly was introduced to Pilates in 1994. Her passion for Pilates led to more extensive study of the Pilates Method and Certification through the rigorous training and prerequisites of Pilates Core Integration (PCI).
The PCI instructor training program, led by Virginia Nicholas, is based on the classical Pilates Method used by master instructors Eve Gentry and Michele Larsson, who respectively, are first and second generation students to Joseph Pilates.
Dolly is a member of Pilates Method Alliance (PMA), the international association which fosters community, integrity, and respect for diversity, establishes certification and continuing education standards, and promotes the Pilates method of exercise.
As a strong advocate of continuing education, Dolly has completed advanced training for Level 5 Advanced Pilates, Scoliosis, Mobile Spine, PCI Anatomy in Clay, and more. In addition, Dolly participates in monthly PCI conferences.
What people like most about her classes are that they are always challenging, innovative, and engaging. Expect diversity and variety. She has a great way of teaching the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of each exercise through precision-oriented instruction.
“It is the mind itself which shapes the body.” -Joseph H. Pilates
