Pilates Reformer: Not for the Novice


This class is taught by:

Penny Compton

We grow old because we stop moving. So says PENNY COMPTON.
After graduating UCLA and upon obtaining my Ph.D. in Nutrition my passion for the physical came to the fore. I not only became a devoted fan of running, but completed a number of marathons – NYC being my favorite and performing my best time. After many years of running, I became interested in long-distance hiking. I was fascinated by reading a memoir by the writer Michael Crichton (Jurassic Park, The Great Train Robbery, etc.) who climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa on a whim. I had always wanted to go to Africa on a safari. Being an animal lover I thought this would be a good way to not only see Africa and its glorious surroundings, but also move my body as well. My success in climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro inspired me to take on a few more mountains: Mt. Whitney in California, the base camp of Mt. Everest in Nepal, and the deep crater, Haleakala, in Maui. Having reached personal milestones, I am thoroughly passionate about teaching Pilates for the past 13 years. It is my joy and purpose in life to inspire others to obtain and maintain vibrant physical and mental health. We don’t stop moving because we grow old – rather -- we grow old because we stop moving!!!!!
