Pilates BeneFITs Every-Body
Everybody can benefit from the regular practice of Pilates. Our current lifestyles of hunching over our steering wheels and computer screens have created postural imbalances that lead to avoidable chronic injuries. Because the foundation of Pilates was rooted in physical therapy, it is the safest form of exercise for those with these common injuries.
Additionally the goal of Pilates is not necessarily to have a perfect body but the most efficiently functioning body. By strengthening weak muscles, stretching tight muscles, building core strength and correcting posture, Pilates can enhance the movement of the body. Regardless of your level of fitness or your personal goals, Pilates will provide a positive effect on your life.

Nikkita Weerasinghe’s journey to Pilates unfolded organically. All her life, she struggled with attaining a healthy body and happy mind.
She found Pilates while looking for a way to escape the stresses of Nursing School at SDSU. The Reformer quickly became her happy place. She submersed herself in the studio by working part-time as a manager and later got her certification to instruct.
Upon graduating and becoming an RN, she continued to grow in her personal and professional Pilates practice.
Nikkita soon realized she loved teaching pilates for the same reason she had always wanted to become a nurse; it was a powerful way to heal the human body, not only physically but mentally.
She appreciated how Pilates helped her evolve into a healthier and happier version of herself and wanted to share that with as many people as possible.
She found that her passion for teaching Pilates was more than just a hobby or a part-time job; it was her dharma – her life’s purpose.
Nikkita’s spunky and feisty personality reflects in her style of teaching; her classes are high energy and fast-paced, definitely not for the faint of heart.
Debbie’s easy going personality shouldn’t be underestimated because she enjoys challenging her clients in the most subtle ways.
