My name is Elizabeth Boyd and I am proud to be a Romana’s Pilates™ certified instructor. My introduction to Pilates came when I was a student working at the Monterey Sports Center in Monterey, California as a front desk attendant. I knew I would have to move to Arlington, Texas and devote my whole self to this work to become the best instructor I could possibly be. In November of 2007 I moved so I could study with Romana herself. I apprenticed at Romana’s studio Metroplex Pilates under the direct instruction of Chacha Guerrero. Pilates continues to challenge and inspire me and teaches me how to become a healthier person by constantly requiring that I balance all aspects of myself - mind, body, and spirit - just as Mr. Pilates intended. One thing that has always stood out to me is that Pilates is about serving humbly. I love the benefits that this amazing workout method and lifestyle bring me but ultimately I strive to pass along all I learn to my clients and maintain the integrity of Joseph Pilates’ genius work.
At Las Colinas Pilates we are committed to teaching Joseph Pilates’ original body- conditioning work to the best of our knowledge and ability. How better to do this than to work on the apparatus designed by the man himself? Each Gratz apparatus remains true to Joseph Pilates’ original designs and specifications, allowing our instructors to teach an exercise to its fullest depth and never compromise the essence of the movement. Top that off with first rate quality construction, and we know we will enjoy teaching and practicing Pilates on Gratz apparatus for many wonderful years to come!
