Sophie is a graduate of Emerson College and a Business Analyst and Marketing Consultant originally from the New York City area. She found her passion for Pilates as a working professional in NYC seeking a form of exercise to combat the stationary life of computer work. Upon trying numerous options, Sophie found Pilates reformer to be the perfect solution to meet her flexibility and stamina goals.
Upon her first pregnancy, she took a short hiatus from Pilates. She attributes her energy during pregnancy and quick recovery after pregnancy to her earlier Pilates practice. Upon returning to Pilates, she rediscovered her confidence in body and mind, feeling transformed by relief of back and shoulder pain. It is during this time, she realized her enthusiasm to teach Pilates and assist others to exceed their goals. After receiving her PMA certification, Sophie taught and practiced pilates throughout her second pregnancy and postpartum recovery. This experience provided her with a new appreciation for the ability to modify exercises for each and every challenge including the symptoms of pregnancy that felt restrictive in throughout her first pregnancy and recovery. Her passion has lead to continued education and training on prenatal and post-natal care that has inspired CBP’s prenatal series.
Sophie manages marketing for CBP spreading the joy pilates has brought to her life. She believed the best part of being an instructor is watching the personal revelation of clients tackling feats they never imagined.
