The Sheppard Method Pilates Program has given me the foundation to become a successful Pilates Manager at the Jonathan Club, an elite private club in Santa Monica and downtown Los Angeles.
With so many programs to choose from, I recommend THE SHEPPARD METHOD PILATES Certification due to Risa’s extensive experience and her dynamic teaching style.

Risa is a wonderful teacher, not only instructing Pilates fundamentals and anatomy, but truly bringing the joy and beauty of movement through her unique choreography.
