Elana Rabin:

 

 

Elana was introduced to Pilates during her studies at Sarah Lawrence College in New York – it was quite a new experience after growing up playing team sports and frequenting the gym. During a five-month tour around Japan and Europe, she discovered her calling was to educate others about the healthy movement of and how to connect with the human body. She received her Pilates training at the well-revered Pilates Center in Boulder, CO. During her two years in Boulder, her passion and appreciation for Pilates deepened once she recognized her strength, balance and body shape were all at a height they had never been before. But more importantly her recurring low back pain, tight hips and hamstring issues were quickly becoming less noticeable every day. She has spent time teaching in Paris, Manhattan, the Hamptons, Bellevue, Los Angeles and is now back in beautiful Boulder, Colorado. She has recently begun her Master’s Pilates Program in hopes of deepening her understanding of the Pilates method and successfully passing her knowledge onto her clients. Outside of the studio, she explores other movements such as weight training, acro-yoga, rock climbing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, kettlebell training, running and dance.
