Prior to owning Pilates from the Center, Kim was the SVP of Marketing for a $2B public retail company. The demanding role led her to Pilates to repair and restore her body from the damaging effects of constant air travel, constant sitting, and constant stress. Pilates was her opportunity to take time out and reinvigorate her mind and body. As an Instructor, she strives to educate and inspire her clients to show them that the hard work has lasting benefits. She was a PFTC client for over 12 years and a graduate of its Teacher Training Program before purchasing the studio.

After 20 years of teaching and regular self-practice, Donna is continually enthused and fascinated by Pilates. So much so that she recently chose to continue her education through PFTC's eMbody program. Although trained in Classical, Donna has focused much of her career on Restorative Pilates, using slower movements and modifications to restore and reset alignment. She is an example of how these movement skills revitalize and rebalance every body, resulting in a natural ease and grace.
