Diana was first introduced to Pilates as a modern dance student at San Francisco State University. After realizing how beneficial the method was for maintaining core stability and spinal alignment, she carried the practice with her into the world of professional modern dance. She was certified as a Pilates trainer through the Integrated Teacher Training Program in San Francisco in 2008 and continues to teach at various studios in the city.
When not teaching, Diana can be seen performing, reading, enjoying nature and studying anatomy. She is grateful for the ability to share her love of movement and well being with her students.
Wanda discovered Pilates to heal her back pain and repetitive stress injuries she encountered from years of working in the restaurant industry. Even though she had always been quite fit and active, she had muscle imbalances and a weak core. Pilates directly improved these weaknesses allowing her road to recovery began. She was moved by this process such that it sparked her desire to learn more about how the body works and to share this knowledge share with her clients. She believes that people of all ages and shapes can benefit from Pilates.
