A BIT ABOUT ME
I believe that every body feels better with movement. Whether you are new to exercise looking to find greater range of motion and core strength, a life-long athlete challenging yourself to move with more efficiency and a lower risk of injury, or somewhere in between, all bodies feel the benefits of Pilates. As a comprehensively certified Pilates Instructor, the absolute best thing I can hear after a session is, "Wow, I feel so much better!" Pilates has the power to lengthen, strengthen, and tone in some pretty incredible ways.
A career in theater and dance brought me to NYC from Scottsdale, Arizona. As a lifelong dancer, Pilates has always been my preferred form of cross training! I received my comprehensive certification from Pilates on Fifth in NYC, and have had the pleasure to work with all types of bodies and people since then. Certified and experienced in Mat, Reformer, Cadillac, Chair, Barrels, and Core Align.

I had my first ever Reformer pilates class with Emily Anderson. I was a little nervous at first to try something totally new, but Emily was super helpful in guiding me + other people through the experience. Thank you for making my first Pilates experience really enjoyable!
I had a private lesson with Emily and she was great! She helped to work on my posture and was very attentive to the way my body moved. We worked on almost all machines and I was able to improve my forms, and felt my muscles toning. I left feeling energized with no unnecessary soreness afterward. Highly recommend Emily!
Being a dancer for 20+ years and having a lot of reformer experience, I have found it very difficult to find a strong studio and instructor that can work with me in a class setting while other clients might not be as advanced as myself. Emily was able to guide all levels of students in class while making it challenging for each and every one of us, including one client who was pregnant.
