Instructor Trainers:
MELISSA CONDRON graduated from Marquette University with a degree in Physical Therapy. She has worked in many different clinic settings, but took a strong interest in sports medicine and geriatric orthopedics. She was introduced to Pilates during her classical ballet training and began persuing her STOTT PILATES Certification in 2000. She joined forces with the Livermore Valley Tennis Club in 2000 to bring high-quality Pilates to the Tri-Valley. She became an Instructor Trainer for STOTT PILATES in Matwork, Reformer, Cadillac, Chair, & Barrels in 2002. In 2003, she became certified to also teach the Injuries & Special Populations course. Melissa prides herself in offering her clients and Instructors the most up to date research to safely maximize the results of their training sessions.

INEKE RUSH began her training in Pilate at the age of 12 in New York City with Carola Trier, a colleague and student of Joseph Pilates, whom she trained with extensively for 2 years. After a 10 year career as a professional ballet and modern dancer, Ineke pursued her Pilates certification with STOTT PILATES. She has been an Instructor Trainer since 2004 and is the owner and director of Mindful Movement Collective in Newark, California. She is certified by the American Council of Exercise as a Personal Trainer and is licensed by the State Medical Board of Ohio in massage therapy.

ANNIE DURNING was introduced to Pilates during physical therapy for repetitive use injuries. The experience changed her concept of fitness and provided her with a sense of calm and physical well being that she hadn't experienced from years of running, weight training, and aerobic classes. Annie enjoys making Pilates accessible to all ages and fitness levels. She holds a B.S. in Biology, an M.S. in Nutrition and she is a Registered Dietitcian with the American Dietetics Association.

GAIL LEWIS received her full certification as a STOTT PILATES Instructor in 2004 and became a STOTT PILATES Instructor Trainer in 2008. In 2005, she became a Gold Certified Pilates Instructor with the Pilates Method Alliance. She is also a yoga instructor and was certified as a personal trainer by the American Council on Exercise in 1995. Gail complemented her Pilates training with complete yoga teacher training courses with David Swenson, Kofi Busia and Doug Swenson. Gail is a graduate of Santa Clara University with a B.S. degree in Finance.

The intensive courses above are recommended for certified fitness instructors, personal trainers, and other fitness & health professionals who want to expand their knowledge and enhance their business. Applicants must have, at least three years experience teaching fitness, dance or movement, familiarity with the works of Joseph Pilates, formal anatomy training and a working knowledge of muscle origins, insertions and functions, in order to attend the course.

You are not obliged to write (and pay for) two exams if you are planning to take both courses. You may choose to wait until completion of the second course to write your exam (a combined Matwork and Reformer exam). If you prefer to pause between courses, you may choose to take an exam to become certified in Matwork only, and another exam (a combined Matwork and Reformer exam) after completing the second course to become certified in Reformer work. In this case two exam fees would apply.
