Lita has had a life-long involvement in the world of dance, fitness, and movement arts and sciences. She is a certified Pilates instructor with Body Arts and Sciences International. She holds an AA of Dance/Performance Art and has studied human anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, and corrective movement. In addition she is a National Association of Sports Medicine certified personal trainer and is CPR certified. Before moving to Austin, she worked as Assistant Director, dance and fitness instructor, and lead performer of the Mosaic Dance Company in Santa Fe, NM.
Since her relocation to Austin in 2008 Lita has been committed to increasing her knowledge of movement and body mechanics. It was here that she was first introduced to the Pilates Method and found the training helped to strengthen dance technique as well as to correct body alignment and imbalances while helping to achieve a greater sense of overall well-being. Lita believes that Pilates is an intrinsic tool for achieving balance in body and spirit. As a teacher she shares her passion for Pilates and inspires health and well-being in others.
Lita is especially passionate about working with teenagers, breast cancer survivors, and elderly adults.
