Cecile first began regular Pilates mat as a way to exercise with a broken ankle! In college, she Fitness and Wellness major, managed a health club, Curves, and was then introduced to Pilates. 

When Cecile took mat certifications on a whim she was hooked!

She believes that through the team of Elevate Mentors, more teachers can be reached, positively impacting more of the population!  More people, feeling and moving better, worldwide! 

“Trust the method. Pilates is for every Body and works best when taught to the body and mind and spirit in front of you.”
