About Owner Dana Dreifus

Dana started practicing Pilates after sustaining a spinal injury in a car accident. She tried many forms of therapy, but Pilates was the only one that seemed to help in a long-term way. After about five years of studying Pilates as a student, she realized she would need to practice it forever. This inspired her to share with others what had helped her so much. Dana has studied thousands of hours of Pilates from multiple teachers, physical therapists, and movement educators. For the past 15 years, she has worked in
the field in her studio, PT clinics and at top local studios, and she’s developed her professional skills while continuing to practice Pilates, yoga, and barre 
for her own injuries. Dana has completed a local 500-hour pilates teacher training in 2008, and since then has completed hundreds of hours of continuing education in pilates and rehabilitative based movement. She has also completed certifications in Barre and Core Align instruction through Balanced Body, and has taken two 200 hour yoga certifications. Prior to earning her Pilates Certification, she graduated from CU-Denver with a B.S in biology, and worked in an Internal Medicine office in Capitol Hill for seven years.
