B.A., Certified Pilates Instructor, L.M.T., AFAA Personal Trainer & Certified Yoga Instructor
Mickey was born in New York but moved to Boulder, Colorado at the age of eight. "Learning to ski, ride horses, and hike in the Flatiron Mountains was part of growing up. I was exposed to all kinds of movement, from tennis to yoga." Mickey was first introduced to Pilates after a debilitating back injury from a snowboarding accident in 2001. After various treatments and rehabilitation, Pilates was the only thing kept her moving, pain-free, and helped her retrain her body for movement for daily activities. "I love the fact that Pilates is a healing art. It makes my body feel great and has made me vigilant about mind-body awareness. Looking great comes with feeling great and engaging my brain during my training makes me feel both! My goal is to help clients reach an awareness in their bodies and get the results they want with a minimum amount of pain."
Mickey graduated from Arizona State University with a B.A. in Broadcasting and became comprehensively certified in Pilates Mat and Apparatus from the PhysicalMind Institute in 2004. She has spent countless hours on continuing education: In 2006 Mickey graduated with a certificate in Massage Therapy from the Florida College of Natural Health, and became nationally certified. In 2007 she started her Yoga certification through YogaFit, and recently completed her 200 Hour teacher training at Inner Vision Yoga in Chandler, AZ. "Yoga teacher training was a life changing experience. I now have an understanding of my yoga practice that's so much deeper, and my pilates practice has expanded because I can see how it all began."
