Pilates instructor Jennifer Read recommends taking a few private lessons to get a feel for Pilates and to ensure you are doing the exercises correctly. Pilates instructor Brooke Siler tells Bodyhack, “Matwork (which is the focus of most Pilates DVDs) is the most challenging aspect of the Pilates work because it uses your own body’s resistance without any framework. Yoga and Pilates share some similarities, which may cause confusion when trying to differentiate them. The practice of yoga was created more than 5,000 years ago, whereas Pilates began in the 1900s. Regardless of the differences, both yoga and Pilates, as well as the many other forms of exercise, can be part of a well-rounded workout plan.

Jenn Seracuse attended the November 2008 training and was officially certified in May of 2009 and is now the Director of Pilates at FLEX Studios. Jenn trains a wide range of clients from top models, like Victoria's Secret Super Model Alessandra Ambrosio and Sports Illustrated swimsuit models Kate Bock and Lauren Mellor; to professional athletes like Tristan Thompson of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Kirsten Ho attended the August-2008 Training with the Lindafit Pilates Cerification Program and was certified in March 2009.
Joanna Sienkiewicz attended the September-October 2009 Lindafit Pilates Cerification Program. I truly believe that Linda's training program for aspiring Pilates instructors is the most real, beneficial, enjoyable, and rewarding program in the Pilates world. Anna Morejon attended the LindaFit Pilates Mat Certification, Nov-Dec 2009, and mini-ball workshop, March 2010. I became increasingly more dissatisfied with my job in the corporate service industry and pilates soon became the focus of my life.
I knew I wanted to teach as passionately as Jeanette and inspire others the way she inspired me. I’m continually flattered by students ( and Pilates instructors alike) commenting on my knowledge, understanding and ability to communicate the mat work- I owe that to a truly gracious and incredibly knowledgeable Pilate mat GODDESS named Linda Farrell!
Gisele Assi was born in Sao Paulo Brazil has studied Ballet, Modern and Flamenco dance for 20 years. Born in Italy and living now in Switzerland, Paola Terribilini has been involved in fitness for over 20 years. I am a full time Pilates Teacher in Switzerland now, thanks to Linda who inspired me a long time ago. Stephanie Petruccio ~ My love for Pilates started when I took a few classes in college (The University of the Arts) as a modern dance major, but grew even more once I started taking Linda's classes at Broadway Dance Center. Stephanie Brooks is a professional dancer, fitness enthusiast, and advocate for the American Heart Association. Mary Sherwin received her BA degrees in Communications and Dance from the University of Washington and continued on to receive her MA in Choreography from Middlesex University in London, UK.
After years of high impact workouts she moved on to Yoga as a form of exercise and a stress relief. Amani Hafez has also been certified by AFFA and ACE as a GFI (general fitness instructor).

Felicia Terlecki is new to teaching pilates but has been taking pilates classes for over twenty years.
Kate Zak - I started to train Pilates before coming to Broadway Dance Center but it wasn't till I met Linda that I developed a deeper understanding of Pilates. I had taken Pilates classes growing up as an adjunct to my dance training but it wasn't until I was introduced to Linda that my appreciation for Pilates and my desire for teaching began to grow. Morgana Rose Mellett grew up in the green mountains of Vermont, before moving to NYC in 2010.

I have only positive things to say regarding Linda Farrell and her Pilates mat certification program. Michelle Pucci-Orosz is a trained dancer, Pilates Instructor and certified personal trainer. Natalia Duke has been traveling and studying different healing modalities since she studied and received her Pilates Mat certification with Linda Farrell in 2009. As a formally-trained ballet and tap dancer, Yvette Lenhart was drawn to the dual effectiveness of Pilates as a way to strengthen core muscles yet leave the body feeling centered and relaxed.
Since I wrote that paper, I joined the cross country and track teams, learned more about my body and kinesiology through class and became stronger physically, mentally and emotionally. The exercises focus on engaging and strengthening the core and uses specific breathing techniques. A practitioner uses the springs for resistance and gain benefits like balance and flexibility.
Combination classes teaching a mix of yoga and Pilates can make the distinction even more confusing. Yoga philosophy includes things for a person’s everyday life, not just fitness practice.
We are pleased to announce the launch of several new Pilates and Barre classes in our studio. Using faster continual motions, this high energy and challenging workout will get the heart rate up.


Using the Wunda Chair and other Pilates Apparatus, this exercise uses springs to offer the right level of resistance for every user and level of ability. Join us as we use Pilates Apparatus to move and stretch in several positions to help relieve stress, prevent injuries and improve health. Foam rollers are extremely versatile and allow for enhanced stretching, body support and stability exercise.
Through Pilates (and stretching) she was rehabilitated and continued to dance professionally for another 13 years. Palmer is on the adjunct faculty of the Graduate Center at CUNY, is the Pilates instructor to the Women’s Swim Team at Columbia University, has been teaching pilates for over at eleven years at Body Strength and the New Dance Group.
Jenn has been featured in several major publications including Glamour, SHAPE, Women’s Health, MAXIM, People StyleWatch, AND New York Magazine. She also works with other film, television and Broadway stars, dancers, marathon and Ironman competitors, NYC socialites and of course new & expectant moms. My certification has provided me with a continuous flow of work teaching at gyms and studios across New York. The classes and trainings are small in number so you can have personal attention and thoroughly understand the material and exercises.
She was first introduced to the practice while in college at Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts. I did my best to make her class at least once a week or whenever I could get down to NYC since I live in Fishkill, NY. She is passionate about helping people live a healthy lifestyle and has taught fitness and dance for over 10 years. She initially fell in love with Pilates during her rehabilitation from a dance injury and enjoyed how the discipline affected her entire well being. Aside from running, cycling, and Pilates, Kat also embraces strength training, TRX, and loves a good sweaty Hot Yoga sesh.
She fell in love with movement at the age of 11 when she took her first dance class and has been dancing ever since. She has found that the tools she has learned from becoming a certified Pilates mat instructor are often utilized in her daily therapy sessions with her clients. She had a successful career in the Fashion Industry and in past few years decided to pursue an alternate career path. A few years ago after a knee injury she discovered Pilates as a wonderful strengthing tool for her body.
She has been teaching since 1987, later becoming the Reebok fitness consultant in Egypt, through which she had the chance of becoming an instructor trainer in Slide Reebok in Spain. Amani is owner and instructor trainer in Body Works Fitness Studio that has been operating since 1999. After receiving her Bachelor of Arts in Dance and Theater from the University of Texas she bravely packed her bags and headed for the big apple. After taking her class, I realized that LindaFit Pilates was the absolute best program to go through in order to receive my Pilates mat certification. She has danced with New York Theatre Ballet, Eglevsky Ballet, Princeton Ballet and Hamilton Ballet Theatre and now has a not for profit called Live Dance Live.
In 2008, she graduated from the Ohio State University where she studied modern dance and pre-physical therapy.
LindaFit's Pilates method lets the exercises (and the science behind them) speak for themselves, and her large following of both students and teachers speaks to her success. After teaching all through college she entered the corporate world and remained a fitness enthusiast despite no longer teaching. The programs are small and Linda cares that each person receives the knowledge and practice to be an articulate, well-educated and successful Pilates mat instructor. She has always been passionate about the biomechanics of movement and the way one moves through space. However, for someone who isn’t experienced with Pilates, it can be unsafe to practice without the guidance of a certified instructor. The right teacher can help inform you of what and how to work your individual body in the way that will provide the most benefit and the least risk. For example, one of Pantanjali’s eight limbs of yoga is yamas (or restraints), like ahimsa (non-violence).

Amani's goal is to continue to grow as an educator to share the wealth of knowledge she has acquired in her years of teaching. Her extensive knowledge in Anatomy helped me leave the course as a confident as instructor in the human body.
I also emphasize exercises that are easily portable, meaning they don’t require big or heavy equipment or a lot of space, so can be done almost anywhere, anytime.
She moved to New York City to dance professionally with a number of independent choreographers and soon after was introduced to Linda Farrell.


Her knowledge and application of anatomy and Joseph's original mat-work stands the test of time.
When Hollis took her first class with Linda in 2007 she fell instantly in love with mat Pilates and knew after her first class she would get certified. Morgana teaches Pilates classes in private residential buildings as well as at Equinox, Broadway Dance Center, West End Health and Fitness, and Boom Fitness.
Furthermore Linda has continued to support me after my certification was completed by recommending me to gym owners and potential private clients and being continuously kind and caring to me.

I could listen to her talking for hours without any sign of boredom, Linda is 100% behind her teachers.
She made me fall in love with the technique and before I knew it, Linda asked me to help her with a few of her certification programs as a model for the students. She was impressed with how the Lindafit certification program strengthened her knowledge of the body and the repertoire that Joseph Pilates created. Her training program is very well structured and gives you just the perfect amount of time, attention and knowledge to feel secure to stand on your own legs.
Having the opportunity to attend many Pilates workshops also allowed her to inject her own mat classes with not just the classical mat work but much more. After completing the Professional Semester Program at Broadway Dance Center, Meghan went on to receive her certification from LindaFit Pilates in 2014. As a biomedical engineer and a sports enthusiast, I have a strong interest in the biomechanics of exercise and sports activities including golf, tennis, running and skiing in particular.
Pilates gives you core strength, greater flexibility, muscle tone, relief of back and joint pain, more energy, weight loss and just a happier you! It has been a pleasure to learn from her and also know that she really cares about her students and their future as instructors.
I love to push the limits and use props such as fitness balls and it makes me so happy walking out feeling I gave my students my best.
She finished her mat certification with LindaFit in 2012 and has been teaching private Pilates lessons ever since. A mom of three, Hollis has used her LindaFit Pilates certification teaching mat Pilates in Westchester, NY as well as other group fitness classes.
In 2005 she began a one-year period of training and apprenticeship and went on to receive her Pilates certification from the Sal Anthony Movement Salon in Manhattan.
Campbell, there are many different reasons to practice Pilates, including as a way to recover and prevent injuries and to enhance the performance of athletes and dancers.

She now teaches classes in New York at both private and public clubs including Boom Fitness and The Colony Club. I want the students to feel joy, to improve, to develop a sense of alignment all with an easy breath when walking out of my class. Michelle's teaching experience includes Piloxing and Dance Cardio Sculpt at Elements Fitness Studio in Manhattan, Piloxing and Zumba instructor at Shotokan Karate Studio in Queens, Fitness instructor at Simply Fit Astoria, Dance Program Director at Camp Wicosuta in New Hampshire.

I would strongly recomend you to take your pilates mat certificate with Linda Farrell .
Pilates seems to have become her obsession in the past 10 years, which made her pursue many certifications: Pilates mat certification by NESTA, Pilates Ball by ACE and finally Linda Farrell's, LindaFit Pilates Mat Certification. I loved working with her and appreciate all she has done for me in my learning process and career development. She continues to teach several Pilates mat classes (Broadway Dance Center, STEPS, Club H, Sal Anthony Movement Salon), in addition to working privately with clients of all different levels.

Now that I have moved into a Director position, I have hired many Lindafit certified instructors to teach under me at FLEX Studios, because I know I am getting quality instructors with the knowledge & training it takes to be a superstar in this industry. I would highly recommend the Lindafit Mat Certification Program to anyone beginning the journey to becoming a Pilates teacher. Linda is a huge positive influence in my life and I appreciate everything she has done for me and for all of her support.
