That I gained incredible insight – and joy in learning – about the mechanisms of my body (an ongoing process), about the power stored in my mind that I can channel into my muscles, and about the power of oppositions, I only regard as the rewards from being Anita’s student and client. It is not Pilates that makes mens sana in corpore sano happen but a talented master teacher. Anita’s approach is unique in that she is able to examine the structure and mechanisms of a person’s body – with its strengths, ailments, unique characteristics – and plan targeted objectives that she will work with personal zest and dedication. A master artist, she navigates and engineers metamorphoses.
She is an excellent diagnostician – not simply a Pilates master teacher. The goals she sets are multilayered and, as a client or student, one feels completely taken for a radical physical transformation and personal intellectual enlightenment. Perhaps the most invaluable qualities that make Anita the best Pilates master teacher one can wish for are her sunny character, her emotional intelligence that enables her to examine one’s personal emotional state and parallel it with the physical, and her ability to transfer passion and energy onto those whom she teaches and trains.
