Gail Giovanniello has a fascination for the limitless potential of movement and healing in the human body, and how incorporating fitness can permeate one’s entire life. Her decades-long devotion to fitness has driven her to pursue multiple methods, however Gail has found that Pilates is the most effective exercise for any physical level. Having been a professional dancer for ten years, Gail now dedicates her life to keeping other people moving and feeling good.
Gail is a fourth generation descendent teacher of the Pilates method, receiving wisdom handed down carefully and specifically from past master to present master and keeping the continuity and exactness of the method intact. She has trained for over fifteen years with Deborah Lessen, a teaching disciple of another Joseph Pilates direct-line student, Carola Trier. Gail also studied with Kelly Kane, founder of Core Integration, who incorporated anatomical knowledge to improve strength and stability. Gail believes in continuing the traditions of precision, breath, control, and alignment set forth by Joseph Pilates in the 1950′s by receiving Heritage Training from Cara Reeser, a disciple of Kathy Grant, who studied directly with Joe Pilates.
In her studio and her teachings, Gail promotes focus and attention to detail along with an in-depth comprehension of anatomy for movement. Her extensive background as well as on-going Pilates continued education allows her to assist people with a broad range of physical concerns: post-injury rehabilitation, sports conditioning and pre-natal exercise as well as posture and overall muscle toning.
Gail is certified by the PMA® and is also the Director of Mind Your Body Pilates Teacher Training, which offers comprehensive Pilates educational training in Pre-Pilates as well as on all Pilates apparatus. Gail also holds a Level II in the GYROTONIC® Expansions system and Jump Stretch Board.
Gail offers profound and overall attention, interest, and concern for all her clients, and gives tireless care to the upkeep of her two studio locations. As a result Mind Your Body was recently awarded Mind Body’s Visionary Award for 2018 demonstrating outstanding studio growth.
