Born and raised in Manhattan Beach, CA, Denielle is a Certified Pilates Instructor through Balanced Body University and has also completed the Anatomy Series of BBU in 2010. She completed her Barre training though Equinox Fitness Clubs and is a Fitness Nutrition Specialist though International Sports Science Association (ISSA). Denielle holds a Bachelors degree in Psychology and a Minor in Education from the University of California, Irvine. She also studied abroad in Sienna, Italy.
As a 14 year practitioner of Pilates, Denielle's transition into teaching came as she realized that not only was Pilates a fun workout, but also saw incredible changes to her body that resulted in a much longer, leaner and toned body. She specializes in injury recovery, pre/post natal, and weight loss. Denielle's ultimate goal is to provide dynamic strength, flexibility, and balance through the "Mind/Body" connection in order to help clients reach their optimal health and fitness goals.
While obtaining her degree, Denielle received extensive training working under physical therapists and athletic trainers with all collegiate athletes at UCI. She also taught gymnastics for 6 years prior to her practice as a Pilates instructor. Aside from her passion of teaching Pilates, she is an Assistant Director/Preschool Teacher in Redondo Beach. She loves the beach, mountains and all related sports as well as traveling. Denielle believes in loving every moment and hopes to inspire that upon you during her pilates sessions.
