Megin Philpott, Certified Pilates Instructor
I found my passion for Pilates 5 years ago when I met Gingy. After my first class I found it was not easy as I imagined, but the surprise was the sense of peace and joy I found. I continue to fall in love with every aspect of Pilates and the anatomy of the body. I am a CYT, certified in yoga-200 hour teacher, as well as comprehensively certified Pilates instructor trained by Balance Body in 2017. I feel complete when I'm practicing and teaching Pilates. I will always be a student of the practice. I am continually studying to improve my knowledge of Pilates and the anatomy of the body. I am very grateful to Gingy and all my teachers for the encouragement, wisdom and knowledge they have shared with me.
