Stephanie, the proud owner of In & Up Pilates, is a trained Power Pilates instructor. She learned the Power Pilates System as an apprentice to Niedra Gabriel, with whom she studied closely. After receiving her Power Pilates certification, and working at studios in the Los Angeles area, Stephanie decided to establish a place of her own. In & Up was the start of a beautiful, fun, intimate setting ready to empower, teach and inspire both clients and friends. Since starting the studio Stephanie has been certified in the Melt Method, TRX, and Bioreprogramming. She has incorporated all these techniques in the development of an extensive pre-Pilates regimen to bridge the gap between Physical Therapy and Pilates for the seriously injured client.
Our studio was founded as a Classical (or New York Style) Pilates studio, meaning we teach a classical system of Pilates based on the original exercises Joseph Pilates created. We have continued to expand our studio to include TRX and Yoga, as they focus on the same principles as Pilates – strong core/stability, balance, breath, and stamina. All of our instructors continually work to advance their knowledge of Pilates, Yoga and TRX to insure our clients are constantly being challenged. We strive to set a stronger foundation for you, so no two classes will ever be the same. All of our teachers have extensive experience working with fitness clients looking to fulfill specific goals, as well as rehabilitation clients who may be transitioning from a more delicate place of injury or pain.
