BILLIE FENERCI

instructor

Billie began her love affair with Pilates over eight years ago and quickly noticed changes in her body. Billie, being a mother to a daughter born on 1990, was shocked that her body looked even better than when she was 18 years old. She quickly realized that Pilates is also not just about building lean muscle but building the connections that make everyday activities flow easier. Her life seemed to change with Pilates and everything became easier. She was amazed by what the body can do when that mindful movement connection is made. She believes the mind/ body/breath focus on Pilates is a truly healthy way to work the body as a whole and extremely uplifting for the spirit. Two of her trainers suggested that she should train to become a trainer and she started her training.
