Group Reformer/jump board


This class is taught by:

Vanessa Salas

Vanessa fell in love with Pilates back in 2011 in London. Since then, she has found more than physical strength and help to manage pain from a connective tissue disorder. The mindfulness and focus of her personal practice have alleviated stress and brought lightness to her life as a VFX Artist.

Now mother of a toddler, she can definitely preach about the importance of being fit during pregnancy and afterwards. She is looking to specialise in pregnancy and post natal care.

Passionate about well balanced full body workouts, Vanessa believes in feeling strong in your body no matter who you are or what you do in your day to day. When she is not in a Pilates studio, she can be found working tirelessly on her other projects: stereo photography, creative programming and singing, but specially raising together a small human and a French bulldog.

Noemy Hernandez

Noemy Hernandez started off as a dancer and dance instructor. She holds a BFA in Dance with a specialization in Choreography from the University of California, Irvine, graduating cum laude. It was at UC Irvine that she discovered the benefits of Pilates. She noticed that her chronic back pain would disappear with the regular practice of Pilates. She completed her Pilates teacher training with Ellie Herman—designer of the Pilates springboard and author of Pilates for Dummies and other published Pilates works. Noemy has used her knowledge from Ellie Herman to bring Pilates to Calpulli Mexican Dance Company (NYC). She also has taken prerequisites to become a Physical Therapist, and uses her knowledge of anatomy and physiology to inform her as a Pilates teacher. She is a new addition to Los Angeles, and looks forward to helping people have healthy bodies with Pilates on the west coast!

DANCE:  Noemy Hernandez was appointed Artistic Director of New-York based Calpulli Mexican Dance Company in February 2012 after forming part of the artistic staff for four years prior as a choreographer, rehearsal director, and dancer. She holds a BFA in Dance with a specialization in Choreography from the University of California, Irvine, graduating cum laude. She also minored in the fields of Drama and Management. Noemy's most recent credits are in New York City. Ms. Hernandez choreographed works for Latin jazz artist Arturo O'Farrill and the Brooklyn Philharmonic. She also choreographed for Shakespeare in the Park's The Tempest.

Ms. Hernandez is a native of Southern California. There she began dance training at the age of 4, first in Mexican folkloric dance and then continued to study ballet, jazz, contemporary dance, musical theater, and flamenco. Just like Spanish was her first language, ballet folklorico was her first dance experience and holds a very special place in her repertoire.

As a performer, Ms. Hernandez was a principal dancer with Pacifico Dance Company, Grandeza Mexicana Folk Ballet led by Jose Vences, and shared the stage with Viviana Basante-Hernandez

Ms. Hernandez is also a gifted Teaching Artist. She served as a master instructor with YoungArts and worked as a Teaching Artist with the New York City Department of Education, sharing her knowledge and love of dance with children throughout the city.

Kat Fillare

Kat has been teaching since 2010. Prior to that, she was a second degree brown belt in Shaolin Kempo Karate, a competitive rower, an avid hiker and runner. Kat was trained in both East and West Coast Pilates styles. Kat's classes are geared toward those who want to work while also having fun.

Group reformer class that incorporates using the reformer jump board platform to do a cardio based workout ON the Pilates machine.  The springs on the machine make jumping a lower-impact move than performing the same movements upright.  Not recommended for those new to Pilates classes, during pregnancy, or for those with injuries or chronic health conditions.
