Lenny has been teaching Pilates since 2009. He came to the method in 2004 order to alleviate back pain, and found that the benefits were far more than just core strength, flexibility and tone. The increased energy, and overall feel of wellness in his life from Pilates inspired him to become a teacher. In his classes you will receive the utmost of attention, be challenged and find encouragement and support to help you attain your goals whether it be to find balance, strength, or among others train for dance or improve your golf game.
After sessions with Lenny you will feel stronger, energized, stand taller, and hopefully learning something about yourself and how you move. However, feeling good during and after class, whether through laughing, smiling, focus or the total body workout you receive, is his primary goal.
Lenny attends continuing education trainings, observes classes and devises ways to bring challenging, successful and invigorating workouts to all his clients. Specific trainings include work with osteoporosis, rotational sports and scoliosis. Additionally, Lenny uses loads of imagery, practices ballet several times a week, and is an apprentice in Shari Berkowitz's Vertical Workshop. Though not a classicist completely, Lenny also finds tremendous value in practicing and moving through the classical system of Pilates. But fear not, contemporary exercises are still peppered into his reportoire.
