Hollee has been a dance teacher and choreographer for 20 years now. She has recently become a certified Pilates and Dance Conditioning Instructor through the Riverside City College Certification Program. Being a dancer herself she found that conditioning her body by learning the Pilates Method that Joseph H. Pilates developed has enhanced her knowledge of how important it is to strengthen and stretch your body. As a dancer instructor and now as a Pilates instructor her hope is to encourage others to take care of their bodies to live healthy lives. She wanted to further her career by learning the repertoire of Pilates mat and apparatus work to help others gain strength for exercise, injuries and self-confidence.

Richard has been practicing Pilates since 2004. Richard enjoys working with people of all ages who are recovering from injury or surgery, or just searching for a healthier body or lifestyle. “Nothing brings me more joy then helping a person return their body to functional movement with Pilates as it has done the same for me.” For him Pilates is more than an exercise form. It is a philosophy of control that connects the mind and body. It draws attention to the way the body moves. Pilates challenges one to live with energy in one’s movement. Richard teaches Privates, Semi-Privates, and group classes and would love to help anyone achieve the goal they have set for themselves to achieve.

Stott based seminars, infused with Basi and Fletcher methods, have served as a foundation for her sessions. Through understanding core stability, balance, flexion, and motion, she creates an accelerating experience on the mat. Various accessories are utilized to enhance lengthening and strengthening during sessions. Being mindful of one's inner self and listening to one's body form the core principals of her sessions.

She started practicing Yoga poses and philosophy on her own  but it was when she had her daughter when the two started taking classes together. She quickly  realized how much more she enjoyed doing Yoga. She has always enjoyed teaching and sharing her knowledge with others. "I think Yoga represents the idea of sharing, compassion, and love in its best way," says Eva.
