As we gear up for our busy season, our beautiful staff members also increase. We are pleased to announce the arrival of a new Pilates teacher, Elena. She will be available for bookings for Pilates Reformer, and also will be teaching some Pilates Tower Classes as well.

Elena is a classically trained Pilates teacher, wife, and mother (one son, Fisher, and one soulful rescue coonhound, Grover). Elena re-discovered Pilates after the birth of Fisher, and quickly became passionate about the classical method, and the amazing results she achieved. Elena spent over a decade as an Investment Banker, before she left the finance world to spend more time with Fisher. Several years of Pilates practice later she enrolled in the 600-hour certification through Power Pilates in Manhattan. Although Elena spends most of the year in Manhattan, teaching at Uptown Pilates, she always looks forward to her summers on Cape Cod and is excited to join the Heart Core team!

As a teacher, Elena hopes that her clients love Pilates as much as she does, and that she can help them build a foundation for a happy, healthy and active life!

Originally from Los Angeles, Elena graduated from New York University with a M.A. in Economics and UCLA with a dual B.Sc. in Applied Mathematics and Business-Economics.

When she’s not at the studio, Elena loves to travel, practice yoga, eat sushi, Instagram stalk, and spend time with her family on the beach in Provincetown, MA.

What is Your Ability?

All levels: this class is open to anyone.

Beginner? Beginner rhymes with blood thinner, breadwinner, prizewinner, shore dinner, web spinner which you are none of these so we think.... but you may be someone that is beginning something or doing something for the first time. You maybe using the equipment for the first time and needs extensive instruction on proper range of motion.  A beginner may not have ever attended a gym or class, but still may be fit. If so then start here!

Intermediate? Maybe your here? You may feel like your occurring in the middle or between extremes of a beginner athlete or a advanced/ Pro Athlete. This is where you may workout regular and have used some of the equipment. You have taken a TRX class somewhere before and know how to operate the straps or know what a kettlebell is? Do you know the fundamentals of movement and can you work in your bodies full range of motion? If so then you will fit in perfectly at this level to get you progressing to the advance and pro classes.

Advanced? or do you want to barn dance, lap dance, clog dance, closed stance, and by chance your not these... but advanced you workout regularly and enjoy pushing yourself hard and to the next level. You work on bettering yourself with every workout, love to sweat, and enjoy the sore muscles the day after a good hard workout... then here you go and bring all that you have to the table. Lets Go Hard and Big or go home.

Pro? You're an athlete, you do races, you have that competitive sprite, your life is about movement and the next best thing. These style classes will help you train harder and faster for your next big goal. Ultimately making you a faster, stronger and more agile athlete. Lets find your limits and then find new ones!
