Amanda is a Nashville native and excited to be back in Nashville after living in Chicago for 12 years. She is classically trained and received her certification from Frog Temple Pilates in Chicago, IL under the direction of Randi Whitman. She has taught in Chicago, Nashville, New York, and San Francisco and is currently teaching in Nashville, TN at Nashville Pilates Company and a faculty member and a Pre and Post-Natal Pilates Specialist™ through The Center for Women’s Fitness founded by Carolyne Anthony.
She began taking Pilates at the age of 12 at the School of Nashville Ballet, but really began to fall in love with it as an adult, where she noticed Pilates strengthening her as a dancer while keeping her balanced throughout daily life.
Amanda received her BA from Columbia College Chicago and danced professionally since 2006 with Chicago-based dance company, The Seldoms, both nationally and internationally. Pilates has helped make her a better and stronger dancer, biker, helped her recover before and after babies, and in her overall life as a human. She believe Pilates is truly for everybody and hopes to continue her Pilates practice until she’s 100 and feels passionately about helping others do the same!<< Back to the Faculty Page
