The Journey from Advanced Ballet to Classical Pilates

Lindy has been passionately teaching classical Pilates for over twenty years. She was introduced to Pilates in her youth as supplemental conditioning and injury prevention/rehabilitation for ballet dancers. Lindy attended many ballet summer intensive training programs in her teen years including Boston Ballet, Pennsylvania Ballet, and Ballet Austin. Lindy pursued her passion for ballet at Texas Christian University where she majored in ballet and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. Pilates was a part of the dance major curriculum.

Advanced Teacher Training Pilates Expertise

She currently holds over 1,500 hours of comprehensive teacher training in the classical Pilates Method including studying and graduating from The Advanced Teacher Training Comprehensive Program and Master’s Program of The Pilates Center Boulder, Colorado, formerly referred to in the industry as The Harvard of Pilates education. Her early instructor training was with Colleen Glenn’s classical comprehensive teacher training program, The Pilates System, in Dallas, Texas. Lindy completed the Classical Syllabus by Mejo Wiggin, world-renowned teacher of teachers, in 2019. Lindy was also invited by Mejo Wiggin to an invitation-only workshop, Beyond the Syllabus, in 2022 for instructors from across the nation based on capability, comprehensive knowledge, and dedication to the traditional/classical Pilates Method where instructors explored and studied the super advanced level of work.

Integrating Nursing and Pilates for Whole Health

Lindy graduated with honors from Baylor University’s Louise Herrington School of Nursing in 2010. Witnessing the devastating effects of disease and illness on our country’s population throughout her clinical rotations and her experience as an operating room nurse in vascular surgery furthered Lindy’s commitment and passion for helping people reap the whole health benefits Pilates offers including enhanced breathing, circulation, and oxygenation.

Pilates for Every Age and Condition

Lindy has vast experience working with clients of all ages and conditions. She has worked with children as young as age four (including her own son) to seniors in their nineties. Her nursing knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and pathology makes Lindy very comfortable working with clients of all conditions. Specialty populations include working with Prenatal and Postnatal women. Lindy has also had the honor to guide new instructors in training through teacher training. She thoroughly enjoys helping young instructors hone their craft.
