About Your Instructor

Michelle Sibilia is the owner and instructor at Pilates Is A Workout. She has been teaching classical Pilates in Sarasota since moving here in 2006, and has trained with many renowned instructors for well over a decade. She received her instruction and certification in NYC from Power Pilates, where she apprenticed under internationally recognized Master Instructor, Bob Liekens. Michelle has been a Pilates Method Alliance certified teacher since 2011.

What To Expect

Pilates is, first and foremost, EXERCISE. When classically taught, it is a unique and effective total body workout that honors the original method of Joseph Pilates, utilizing the exercises and apparatuses that he created. A session with Michelle will leave you feeling strong and energized; you will learn to initiate movement from your core, strengthening the deepest muscles, while lengthening and stretching the body as a whole.

How To Begin

Pilates training that fully utilizes various traditional studio apparatus is the authentic approach to learning the method. Private, one-on-one sessions address your individual needs, and build a solid foundation where you will learn the basics and become familiar with the apparatuses. Once this is achieved, clients have the option to move on to semi-private sessions. Additionally, Pilates Mat Class is a great workout which allows you to learn and practice the classical mat exercises at your appropriate level in a small group.
