Michon Ness

Certified Pilates Instructor

While Michon first tried Pilates as a way to tone her body, what hooked her was how she benefitted so much more than just the increased strength she gained.  The mental effort and control that goes in “Contrology” is where Michon finds the power in the Pilates Method.  Since beginning Pilates, Michon has seen her life transform significantly, bringing her mental, physical, and spiritual health into harmony. She has dedicated herself to teaching and spreading the practice among others, educating herself in the Classical Method and training intensively at The Pilates Center in Boulder, Colorado. Through her work as an instructor, she hopes to guide her clients towards a happier and healthier lifestyle, as she has come to experience this sense of peace in her own life.


Brian Hunt

Certified Pilates Instructor, Personal Trainer, LMT

Brian discovered the power of Pilates while supplementing his strength training routine.  Finding that he could gain strength and flexibility without the impact of weights, and seeing the benefit his personal training client found using Pilates, he became an advocate.  Brian’s passion for movement extends beyond the studio: he loves skiing, hiking, claiming 14ers, aerial acrobatics and powering through the city on his bike.  Over the past 15 years, Brian has taught Pilates to all ages, abilities, and special needs.  Let him show you how to be a more efficient mover, whether you are an athlete or learning how to protect and strengthen muscular-skeletal issues.

Jennifer Calderone

Certified Pilates Instructor

Jennifer started Pilates in the 1990s, after reading a Vogue article touting its benefits.  She was impressed by the Method’s respect for the integrity of the body, as well as the quality of the movement it encouraged, and began taking more classes.  But it wasn’t until Jennifer reached her 40s that she realized that Pilates was her fountain of youth, and she decided she needed to share her passion with others.  Jennifer is trained through The Pilates Center of Boulder in the Classical Pilates Method. As a teacher, she tries to maximize empathy to illicit excellence.  She believes that Pilates is a body-mind-spirit adventure with benefits far beyond sculpting long, lean, flexible muscles.

What People Are Saying

  • Phil

    "Pilates makes you taller. I didn't need to duck when I walked in the changing room when I came in, but after my session I needed to."

  • Ester, Age 53

    "I like the feeling of a whole body stretching and strengthening workout in a calm environment."

    Ester, Age 53
  • Jim, Age 35

    "Since I started doing Pilates I have noticed that my muscles respond better during other activities, my breathing and overall health has improved, and I am mentally more relaxed."

    Jim, Age 35
  • Jill, Age 54

    "I feel like I've gotten a massage when I'm done. It stretches me in places I didn’t even know I had. Also, I work my muscles in a much deeper way than any other forms of exercise I've tried."

    Jill, Age 54
  • Lisa, Age 28

    "Last year I endured a stress fracture from running. After six months without running and one month in a walking cast I went for a gait analysis and it was recommended that I try Pilates to strengthen my stabilizer muscles. After two months my core is so much stronger and I am back to running."

    Lisa, Age 28
  • Susan, Age 53

    "I first went to see Dana in 2001 after I had suffered an injury resulting in severe pain and loss of strength from a herniated cervical disc. I also had chronic pain and mobility issues from multiple knee surgeries. Dana's expertise and hands-on teaching style has enabled me to once again move without pain. Today, I am stronger, more flexible and living a much higher quality of life than I had been able to do for so many years."

    Susan, Age 53
  • Karen, Age 42

    "Every time I come to work out, my body is in a different mood...Dana is always very flexible with her approach and sensitive to my conditions. I rely on my sessions with Dana and know that her work with me is critical to my physical well-being."
