Amanda Martin is a veteran Pilates teacher returning to Athens from New York City. Her thriving studio has made a name for itself for its warmth and sense of community. By crossing the boundaries of fitness and rehabilitation she speaks to the needs of a diverse clientele of women and men, young and old, athlete and osteoporosis sufferer.
She is certified in Pilates through the Kane School of Core Integration which offers a unique approach to realignment through proper biomechanics and manual touch. Her teaching offers clients an opportunity to explore their movement habits and restore balance.
She is also certified in GYROKINESIS® instruction. Through these two methods, her teaching philosophy pulls from her diverse dance and fitness backgrounds to provide an educational and creative movement experience.
In 2012, she co-founded the Underground Dance Society, an Athens-based collective of artists experimenting with traditional and site-specific performance for the community.
