This class is taught by:

Lynn Torrent

Instructor
 
Lynn Torrent is originally from NY but has called South Florida home for 25 years. Married for 3 decades and a devoted mother to two happy kitties (15 and 16 years young), Lynn has always believed in hard work. Her love affair with Pilates started about 10 years ago, deciding to finally take the relationship to the next level by joining the Real Pilates Teacher Training (RPTT) Program. "Believe me, I did my research. I have taken sessions all over South Florida and this is exactly what I'm looking for in a comprehensive certification program. I fully believe in 'One Body, One Mind' so we better be good to them!" Lynn graduated from the RPTT program in January, 2017 and is excited to share what she has learned with her clients at Pure Pilates.

Avél Juliette HM

Instructor
 
Avél Juliette was born and raised in South Florida, although was blessed to call New York City home for almost 6 years. An actor and hospitality specialist, Avél experienced an enriching variety of endeavors while in NYC, including a position as Studio Coordinator for a boutique Pilates studio, Park East Pilates, on Madison Ave. Being introduced to Classical Pilates methodologies made her a true believer. Its ability to lengthen, strengthen and empower your body and mind is unlike anything else she has ever experienced. Gaining the opportunity to be Studio Coordinator at Pure Pilates is exactly where she wants to be in her life. Avél has since undergone a huge transformation by joining the Real Pilates Teacher Training Program here at Pure Pilates -- graduating in January, 2017. She is excited for the future and is looking forward to a successful partnership with Karen and her beautiful studio!

Dylan Thomas

Instructor
 
Dylan Thomas is a former bookworm who discovered the joy of Pilates and never looked back. Although he is still working to build his elusive Powerhouse, he can now sit up straight, roll like a ball, hang like a squirrel, and perform a great variety of movements that make him feel strong, alive, grounded, and present. Also a licensed massage therapist, Dylan meets lots of people who experience daily aches as well as chronic pain and stress. He knows Pilates can help, and that's why he became a teacher. Dylan was originally certified in 2012 in Miami, Florida, by his mentor, Anna Alvarez, who introduced him to the breadth of the method and its ability to change bodies and lives. In 2015, he recertified with his second mentor, Dorothee VandeWalle, who helped him deepen his understanding of classical Pilates and to more keenly appreciate its grace, rigor, and athleticism. Now, Dylan continues to study under the eagle eyes of Karen Winselmann at Pure Pilates. He is honored to have been invited to teach at her studio, where he can put the method to work to help clients experience the happiness that comes from moving Pilates-style with strength, flexibility, and control.

Teresa Trunzo

Instructor

Teresa Trunzo was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois an at age fourteen she moved to South Florida. As a result of being in the sunshine state with beautiful beaches, warm weather and endless sunny skies, outdoor activities like bike riding and roller skating were a common past time. She became interested in nutrition and fitness shortly after completing high school.

Teresa’s first teaching experience started in 1984 with Richard Simmons Anatomy Asylum in Deerfield Beach, FL. There she helped choreograph high impact aerobics to music. The emphasis was on a total body workout in addition to nutrition counseling for all body types and fitness levels. Teresa continued her fitness career with weight training, nautilus equipment training, power walking and more.

Teresa was introduced to authentic Pilates in 2009. At that time she became aware of the benefits of this form of exercise and how it can enhance your body and everyday living. Teresa successfully completed the Romana’s Pilates® Instructor Training Program in 2013. Teresa is always learning and continues to share her passion of Pilates and the benefits to the mind, body and spirit with the community.

This Mat/Tower class uses the basic Pilates exercise vocabulary in a well-rounded workout to train coordination, centering, breath, control, and concentration. Students will learn new exercises, add resistance work with springs, expand the Pilates vocabulary, and become better at performing the Pilates movements with flow.
