Angelique Head Shot

Angelique is a native of Southern California and a graduate of UC Irvine with a B.A. in English. She began taking dance lessons at 6 years old and by the age of 16, started to teach. After incurring a hip injury while still in her late teens, she was introduced to Pilates and became fascinated with the intricacies and complexities of the body. She continued to pursue her passion for movement and danced and taught professionally for more than 20 years.

Years later while living in New York, she earned her first Pilates certification through The PhysicalMind Institute in 2003 after an 11 month intensive apprenticeship program under the direction of Master Teacher Elizabeth Gillies. Angelique was then invited to teach at Elizabeth’s studio for the next 4 years where she was profoundly influenced by Ms. Gillies’ dedication to rehabilitation and innovation. Angelique pursued her second Pilates certification by completing the BASI Comprehensive Teacher Training Program in 2008.

In 2012 Angelique became a certified Level 1 GYROKINESIS® and GYROTONIC® instructor. In 2016, she completed a RYS 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training and is a certified Yoga Instructor.

She is also an advanced MELT Method Instructor. MELT is a Hands-off Bodywork™ approach that simulates the techniques and the results of manual therapy. MELT rehydrates connective tissue and conditions the nervous system to enhance its ability to support, protect and stabilize the body and eliminate the aches and pains we suffer from day to day activities. She was trained by MELT Method creator, Sue Hitzmann in 2009. Angelique is a Hand and Foot, MELT Length, MELT for Pilates Level 1 & 2 and MELT Strength Level 1 and 2 instructor.

Utilizing intuitive cueing and a meticulous eye for form and proper body mechanics, Angelique provides a unique experience for each of her clients and their personal needs and goals. She strives to instill a clarity and deep understanding of the work to her diverse clientele such as those with shoulder pain, fibromyalgia, hip replacement, plantar fasciitis, ACL repair and sacroiliac dysfunction. She has logged over 20,000 hours of teaching and has trained extensively in movement protocols for specific populations. Angelique’s focus and specialization is working with individuals with low back pain, clients with scoliosis and those suffering from chronic pain.
