Hi! I am Anita, 2nd Generation Teacher, Lolita San Miguel Pilates Master with over 15 years of experience. I was first introduced to Pilates as a result of back pain and Pilates saved me! First graduated with Power Pilates / Universal Pilates in Spain and continued my education with Pilates Elder, Lolita San Miguel, USA where I completed a two year Pilates Master Mentor Programme. Laterally, I successfully completed a further year long LEAP Programme with the late Master Teacher Bob Liekens who introduced me to essential and functional advancements to the movement.  These experiences and knowledge have signified the importance of the Classical Pilates method, combined with functional advancements to the movement in order to maximize your clients’ experience. That’s what Anita Horry Academy (AHA) stands for!


I am committed to bringing alignment into my own life, body and those people I come across on a daily basis with the intention to make their presence on this earth a better one. I have personally benefitted from Pilates in every way. As a teacher trainer, my intention is to create a programme which respects the Classical lineage combined with the functional adaptations required to teach the body in front of you. This is not a one-method-fits-all. This is NOT how Joe Pilates taught. A teacher should have all the necessary tools to be able to use for each instance/client who crosses his/her path. This is what makes an exceptional teacher!

I want to EMPOWER my students to experience their own greatness and BE THEIR OWN HERO. – Anita Horry

Total Failure

In my previous attempts to build a Pilates career, I considered taking short cuts, running a wild goose chase to figure out which was the best way to jump start my profession. It was only after I had a fantastic Pilates and business mentor that I realized any professional career requires 3 CORE elements:


Lots and Lots of Investment


That being financial, education and time




Rome was not built in a day and trying to take shortcuts just comes back to bite you!


Perseverance & Persistence


My own determination not to give up when the going got tough and it seemed like I wasn’t going to see my project/dream come true!

Achieve your own potential & find out how to be your own teacher!
