Samia Markz, Certified Classical Pilates Instructor
 
Samia is a certified Pilates Instructor (Classical). Samia, who happens to be a gym-a-holic, discovered Pilates six years ago after overcoming and recovering from an eating disorder.
 
Pilates became her passion as she immediately noticed a change in her physical body; she then pursued Pilates as her hobby and completed the New York Classical Pilates Technique Certified Program under Jill Cassady’s instruction in Brentwood, California with a total of 480 hours of practice.  
 
For Samia, Pilates is more than just a technique, it’s a self-discovery of the body, mind and soul, as well as a beneficial program for developing lean and toned muscles, staying healthy and mobile as we age.      
 
Samia specializes in injury prevention, deep core strengthening, pelvic work, body alignment and weigh loss. She develops training programs for new clients based on their needs. She regularly teaches private, semi-private and group classes in the following formats: Mat Pilates, Reformer, Cadillac and Stability Chair (a.k.a. Wunda Chair).
 
Samia is bilingual and fluent in English and Spanish. Samia is also knowledgeable in American Sign Language.
 
Before she discovered her true passion for teaching the essence and principles of movement, Samia received a Bachelors Degree in Production Management related in the Fashion Industry at The Fashion Institute of Technology, State University of New York, New York.
