A BIT ABOUT ME
What I believe: Every body feels better with movement, and that every body can benefit from Pilates.
What I teach: Pilates in a contemporary format. I use modifications and props to tailor a session to your needs, whether that be training for a sport, recovering from an injury, or simply wanting to feel strong and mobile in your day-to-day life.
What you can expect in a session: We will discuss your goals and needs, and use the session to move, strengthen, mobilize, and activate! My teaching style is warm, supportive, and fun. I love to discuss the "why" behind the exercises, and it is truly exciting to make discoveries and progress together.
More about me: A career in theater and dance brought me to NYC from Scottsdale, Arizona. As a lifelong dancer, Pilates has always been my preferred form of cross training! I received my comprehensive certification from the Pilates Academy International in NYC, and have had the pleasure to work with all types of people since then. Certified and experienced in Mat, Reformer, Cadillac, Chair, Barrels, and Core Align.
My favorite Pilates quote: “If your spine is inflexibly stiff at 30, you are old; if it is completely flexible at 60, you are young” - Joseph Pilates
I had my first ever Reformer pilates class with Emily Anderson. I was a little nervous at first to try something totally new, but Emily was super helpful in guiding me + other people through the experience. Thank you for making my first Pilates experience really enjoyable!
I had a private lesson with Emily and she was great! She helped to work on my posture and was very attentive to the way my body moved. We worked on almost all machines and I was able to improve my forms, and felt my muscles toning. I left feeling energized with no unnecessary soreness afterward. Highly recommend Emily!
Being a dancer for 20+ years and having a lot of reformer experience, I have found it very difficult to find a strong studio and instructor that can work with me in a class setting while other clients might not be as advanced as myself. Emily was able to guide all levels of students in class while making it challenging for each and every one of us, including one client who was pregnant.
