Andrea has been teaching Pilates since 2005, and has been a BASI faculty member since 2010. As a dancer, she was introduced to mat Pilates at Santa Ana College and apparatus work at Orange Coast College. She then pursued a degree in dance science at Cal State University, Long Beach where she studied with Karen Clippinger. However, various injuries brought her dance career to an end, and she decided to focus strictly on Pilates. Upon completion of her certification through Body Arts and Sciences International with Rael Isacowitz, she taught for 5 years at On Center Conditioning in Costa Mesa. In 2012, she relocated to Live Life Pilates, owned by fellow BASI faculty member Leah Stewart. Her other certifications include pre and post natal pilates and hoop dance. She also appears as a model in BASI's revolutionary Pilates Interactive software. Andrea's more than 20 years of dance training has helped her develop an eye for technique, an appreciation for beauty and a sound understanding of the benefits of movement. She is extremely proud to be a part of the BASI team and looks forward to offering her knowledge and insight to Pilates students around the world.
