Erin Fenoll - owner and instructor
2021 brings a new adventure for Erin Fenoll, the proud new owner of Core Connection Pilates. As a Stott-certified instructor, she believes that Pilates can be life-changing and truly is for everyBODY! She intends to continue the positive path to health and wellness at Core Connection Pilates and would like to reach even more people in the community to help them use the mind-body practice of Pilates to transform their lives in amazing ways!
As a Stott-certified Pilates Instructor for more than 8 years, Erin finds it rewarding to hear from clients how Pilates has transformed them in so many positive ways, whether it is recovering from an injury, improving posture and alignment, building strength, toning their bodies or the calming and balancing we all need in this fast-paced world in which we live.
"I feel grateful to be able to pursue a path that has helped me to improve my own health and wellness and have a passion for helping others do the same. Seeing the progression of clients and how they achieve their goals through their Pilates practice is extremely fulfilling."
We encourage anyone who wants to discover the benefits of Pilates to call the studio and set up a personalized private session with our new client special rate.
