About the retreat leader

“I am a Pilates instructor with over 20 years of experience. In 2011, I started a Wellness company called MickiPhit, where I combine my knowledge of Pilates, group fitness and movement to enhance the life of my clients.

I started practicing Pilates in preparation for my wedding and fell in love with the principles, movement and results of Pilates. After practicing for 2 years I became certified through Power Pilates as a Mat I and Mat II Pilates instructor. I am also certified through ACE and AFAA as a Wellness Coach, Strength Coach and Group Fitness Instructor.

In 2018, I launched a membership based Online Pilates Studio (MickiPhit.com) that offers 24/7 access to step-by-step instructional Pilates videos providing simplified Pilates for your home or on-the-go Pilates practice. I also offer the MickiPhit Fitness app for those who want more athletic weight training workouts for home or on- the-go.

My aim is to bring Pilates and movement to a wide range of students with the MickiPhit Method; by offering variations of the traditional Pilates moves. My book, Pilates for Everyone, provides over 100 variations of Pilates and Pilates inspired exercises- making Pilates more accessible to students of many fitness levels.

I have an international following and have taught in Greece, Panama, Jamaica, Aruba, Italy and Spain. I enjoy the relationship building that Pilates retreats provide and the getting to my know my students are deeper level.

When I am not traveling,teaching clients or filming inventory for my online platforms; I love spending time with my husband Imari and my two children Autumn and Miles.“
