Julie Thayer first found Pilates in 2006 after researching many methods of exercise. Julie studied at Chakra Pilates in San Diego, CA, where she completed a year-long Teacher Training Program earning her Pilates Certification.
Mentored by instructors at opposite ends of the Pilates spectrum, Julie received a well-rounded and thorough education ranging from Classic to Contemporary Pilates. The in depth training covered all the apparatuses including Reformer, Chair, Cadillac, Jump-board, Ladder Barrel, Springboard, Mat and Classic Pilates as well as routines for Prenatal and Postpartum Pilates and Cardio Circuits.
As well as being trained on a mix of apparatuses, Julie’s education has been a mix of disciplines stemming from Lolita and Romana’s methods to Basi, Physical Mind Institute, Peak Pilates and more.
She has been teaching since January 2013 and continues to expand her education through workshops lead by Master instructors such as Lolita San Miguel, who was taught and certified by Joseph Pilates himself. Julie is always absorbing knowledge and learning from those around her. She is most intrigued in the mind-body connection and is determined to help every client find his or her own individual connections to establish a peaceful state of mind and a healthy body.
