Personal Training and Pilates, Founder

Oona Nelson

I am the Principal Trainer, Teacher Training Program Director, and Owner of Centered Body Pilates. I have over fifteen years of teaching experience and twenty-five plus years as a student of various Pilates methods. Whether it is competitive hunter/jumper riding, snowboarding, windsurfing, dirt biking, or scuba diving, I love staying active.

My focused interest in Pilates has grown out of this need to keep my body in motion, my muscles strong and my lifestyle healthy. I am a certified Pilates instructor through Integrated Teacher Training (ITT) and continue my own education through classes, workshops, and conferences. In addition to my Pilates knowledge, I am also certified as a Personal Trainer through the American Council on Exercise and a certified Horseback Riding Instructor through Pacific Grove Equestrian Center.

Before opening Centered Body Pilates I was the staff Pilates trainer at San Francisco's Healthwell Physical Therapy Group. My approach is holistic and balanced for the entire body.
