Sheina trained in the STOTT PILATES* method at Pilates on Fifth, Pilates Center of New York, Inc. She is a Certified Instructor of Intensive Mat Plus and Intensive Reformer.
Developed by former professional dancer Moira Merrithew, with input from sports medicine professionals, STOTT PILATES is a contemporary, anatomically-based approach to Joseph Pilates' original exercise method.
