Anissa has been teaching Pilates for 10+ years and is a fully certified Balanced Body instructor with over 800 hours of training and CEU’s in anatomy, comprehensive training in mat Pilates and equipment Pilates. Anissa is also a fully certified Level 1 Franklin Method Educator. A native of Louisville and a graduate of Xavier University in Cincinnati, she worked successfully in corporate America for many years. Anissa has two children and has lived in Nashville TN for 29 years. She started taking Pilates after the birth of her second daughter in order to strengthen her core and correct issues associated with childbirth. That experience taught her the unique restorative techniques of Pilates, which has helped her not only reform her own body, but of others as well. Anissa believes deeply in Pilates and that optimum functional movement is the key to the body achieving the best functioning it can achieve. Her approach to Pilates is unique as it incorporates the Pilates principles but then cross trains with other exercise disciplines to achieve the result of an integrally strong and balanced physique. Anissa also teaches workshops and series class on the Franklin Method at Marathon Pilates!
