Monica Delgado Pilates Teacher www.monicadelgado.com

Unlike majority of the Pilates community, Monica does not come from a dance background, but from competitive gymnastics and cheerleading instead. Close enough. She stumbled upon Pilates after a back injury sustained from weight lifting.  After doing “pilates-based exercises” that a physical therapist prescribed, Monica was able to function and move again, and was hooked.  That was ten years ago.  After realizing the benefits of Pilates, Monica continued her practice and eventually became certified in the classical style through Peak Pilates.  She has been teaching since 2007.
Monica is most impressed with how applicable Pilates is to everything we do.  Whether it is sitting in a chair behind a desk, climbing up or down stairs, picking up a bag of groceries, throwing a football or surfing some waves, Pilates is present.  The method has taught her efficiency of movement and proper functional movement, which is what keeps her coming back and is what she strives to impart to her clients.  She loves giving cookies out.  Not the calorie laden kind you eat, but the Pilates kind.  You will have to try a session with her to get your delicious treat!
When she is not teaching Pilates, she is working in her art studio in Long Island City.  Monica is a practicing visual artist with a degree in Painting and has exhibited her work locally and internationally.

Leila Bazzani Pilates Teacher www.corepathpilates.com

Being a dancer and gymnast from a very young age, I have always had a deep and a very natural connection to my body and movement. As I continued to dance and create through my adolescence and puberty, I began to realize that my body was not a typical “dancers” body. I had hips, and my mothers strong behind, and because of this I had many story lines I told myself and held on to for many years to come. Until I realized how unbelievable and amazing the human body is in all its perfect imperfections. How much it can overcome when we truly begin to not only love our bodies, but change our story lines from I cant to I can. People prove it all the time. People with far more physical and mental obstacles than I have ever had. I learned this profound lesson when I found Pilates over 15 years ago. I practiced and learned not only the Classical Method as Joseph Pilates intended, but also the power of manifestation and human will. I became stronger in body and mind and more balanced than I had ever been, even after all the years of training I had as a performer. I saw such change in my being that I decided to become certified and enrolled in The Pilates Technique Certification corse taught by Jill Cassady in Los Angeles California. A very in depth 400 hr program derived directly from Jills own one on one apprenticeship with Romana Kryzanowska. I was fully certified on all equipment for all levels in October of 2010 and have been enjoying teaching and training ever since.
