Amplified Instructor of the Month    img_4667

We are thrilled to be welcoming Shauna to our team of Amplified instructors.  Get to know Shauna… 

How did your Pilates career began?
I was a high school English teacher for the past 15 years until this past year when I decided I wanted to do something that was less stressful and more flexible.  I figured I would look for an online teaching or curriculum development job, but shortly after I left my teaching job, Angie posted a notice about the Teacher Training program she was offering at Amplified. When I saw it, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in Pilates as it would allow me to continue teaching in some form and it would get me back into doing Pilates on a regular basis.  

Why are you excited to join Amplified?
I’m excited to join Amplified because the instructors are amazing, the studio is beautiful and inviting, the equipment is top-notch, and all of the clients I have worked with and met so far are awesome!  

Why do you love teaching Pilates?
I love teaching Pilates because I know that it benefits EVERYONE! It’s an amazing feeling to see clients progressing session by session: getting stronger and standing taller right in front of my eyes.  

Favorite piece of equipment?
Hmmm…do I have to pick a favorite?  I’ll go with Chair although I love everything!

Favorite cheat meal?
Pizza, but it has to have meat on it 🙂

Favorite movie?
Pretty Woman–She gets to eat pizza and shop at the same time!

Dream place to travel to?
Santorini, Greece

Favorite Chicago restaurant?
Any steakhouse–I’ll go with RPM Steak.

Shauna will be available for sessions on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.  Book a session with her soon.  Your body won’t be sorry!
