Pilates At Your Desk is growing (yippeee) and as there is only one of me, I have brought some lovely new teachers into the fold. So you know who’s who I will be posting a short introduction on each. First up is the lovely Corey who I met at a studio I used to work with. She’s a wonderful teacher and has kicked off her PAYD moves with a regular weekly class at Parallel Consulting. Here’s a little bit about Corey and a photo of her with the Parallel team.
Corey is a professional dancer and Body Art Science International (BASI) certified Pilates instructor.
Corey started practicing Pilates at the age of 9 at the Royal Ballet School associate program. Each class started with Pilates exercises before moving onto classical ballet training. The focus on conditioning the body to help prevent injury and prepare the body for the demands of classical ballet from such an early age, really instilled the importance of caring for your body right from the beginning of her journey to becoming a professional dancer.
After graduating from Elmhurst School for dance in 2012 at 19, she moved to Copenhagen to perform the lead role in 'The Nutcracker'. Since then she has performed in various widely acclaimed productions both in the UK and internationally before deciding to study to be a Pilates teacher.
Pilates has, and still is, guiding Corey through her career. Allowing her to push herself to new heights pain free, despite a scoliosis and various minor injuries along the way.
Corey believes Pilates is the key to understanding your own body and how to work with it, so as to be able to live a pain free life no matter what your fitness goals or vocation.
Welcome to the team Corey!
