Int/Adv - Reformer for Instructors in Training


This class is taught by:

Arwen Brooke

Senior Certified Pilates Instructor, CoreAlign Instructor & Balanced Body Faculty.  

Arwen began her Pilates journey back in 2002. As with many people, too much time spent commuting to a cubicle lead her to try Pilates as a form of stress relief; the positive benefits of Pilates on her body and mind exceeded her expectations and transformed her life.

In 2004 she moved to Hawaii to begin her certification process with the PhysicalMind Institute. She completed her training back in California with Tom McCook at Center of Balance, where she later worked and continued to study. There she was also introduced to Yoga & Meditation in movement, which greatly influenced her teaching. In 2008 Arwen began working with Lisa Graham, owner of Agile Monkey and Faculty member for Balanced Body. She since has assisted Lisa with countless instructor training courses and in the spring of 2011, Arwen became a Balanced Body Faculty member.

In the summer of 2012 Arwen trained with Nora St. John & Portia Page on the CoreAlign and offers instruction with this dynamic piece of equipment as well.

As an instructor, Arwen is dedicated to the Pilates Method but is always adapting her teaching to her clients’ needs. Her teaching style is one of empowerment, encouraging students to learn their way into better fitness & an overall better life experience. Arwen has had an active life from childhood (playing soccer, climbing mountains, snowboarding, etc), so she is able to work and teach the fit in focused, dynamic, sports specific ways. In addition she had great success with training post-rehab clients and has developed a passion for the healing process. Arwen enjoys motivating and encouraging confidence in all of her clients by helping them to develop efficient, healthy movement patterns. Being a part of a person’s journey from pain to pain-free is an amazing and wonderful thing, and to Arwen, it is the best job in the world.

This Reformer Class will focus on deepening students understanding of the Balanced Body Instructor Training repertoire, underlying movement principles, sequencing and more.

Please note that all of our Reformer classes will organized at the discretion of the instructor and interest of the clients, and may utilize some time on the mat or other equipment (Tower, Chair, Barrels, etc) to ensure the best class experience.
