Dana Shriberg, Studio Owner & Certified Pilates Instructor
Dana discovered Pilates over a decade ago and was instantly hooked! After completing the prestigious Teacher Training program at The Pilates Center in Boulder where she studied with a number of 2nd generation Pilates teachers, Dana taught for six years at a prominent Denver studio before opening The Pilates Movement in 2007.
Dana's knowledge of Pilates, combined with her effective teaching style, allows her to work with all types of students. She has trained and mentored other Pilates instructors, has worked with individuals who have specific rehabilitation needs (back injuries, joint dysfunction, and muscular imbalances), as well as trained competitive athletes. Dana believes that Pilates is as much about having fun and personal development as it is about physical fitness. With all of her participants, she emphasizes a holistic approach to Pilates and encourages people to enjoy their practice. Dana is committed to her own development as an instructor and has attended Pilates workshops around the country with Kathleen Stanford Grant, Rael Isacowitz, Michelle Larson, Mary Bowen and other esteemed professionals.
