Yoni discovered Pilates in 2005, when she used to live in Los Angeles, CA. She received her Classical Teacher Training certification by Teague Pilates, which required 600 hours to complete. Back then, Teague Pilates used to manufacture Pilates equipment, so Yoni gained knowledge on various Pilates apparatus and springs. In 2010, Yoni continued her education to a Master trainer program at internationally recognized ‘The Pilates Center’ in Boulder Colorado. Throughout the years, Yoni has gained experience working with many different body types and ages. Yoni has worked with professional athletes such as football players, tennis players, golfers, soccer players, surfers, swimmers, basketball and hockey players; helping them to improve on their respective sports. Yoni specializes in injuries and rehabilitation programs ranging from: surgical recovery, lumbar and Thoracic spine injuries, neck and shoulder inhibitions, joint problems, Physical tightness, weakness and imbalances.

When Yoni teaches, she emphasizes correct alignment, full body work and breathing techniques, and mind-body connection. Yoni truly believes that with commitment and patience, a steady Pilates practice can change your life.

In her free time, you can find Yoni playing with her 2 beautiful girls, or out enjoying nature.
