Yoni first discovered Pilates in 2005 while living in Los Angeles, CA. Her love for the Pilates method inspired her to complete a 600 hour Pilates Teacher Training Certification with Teague Pilates in the Classical Pilates style. With Teague being a manufacturer of Pilates equipment, Yoni had extensive exposure to the manufacturing process which gave her a deep understanding of the components and mechanisms of Pilates equipment and apparatus, and how they interact with the human body to create the well known results of the Pilates method. In 2010, Yoni continued to pursue her education at an internationally recognized Master Teacher Training program in Boulder, Colorado. Often referred to as the “Harvard” of Classical Pilates training, The Pilates Center curriculum emphasizes the benefits of teaching in the classical style as it was created and taught by Joseph H. Pilates, himself.
