Hilda Falkenstein completed her Pilates Teacher Training at Ellie Herman Studios in June of 2004. A modern dancer for many years, she performed with several local companies including Joanna Haigood’s Zaccho Dance Theatre, June Watanabe and Dancers, and the San Francisco Opera Ballet. She has trained extensively in a variety of dance techniques including Limon, Graham, and ballet.
Her love of Pilates began after just a few classes when she realized the pain of an ankle injury had disappeared and her body alignment was noticeably improved.
As a practitioner and trainer, Hilda is continually inspired by how Pilates re-educates and heals the body. She has found that the Pilates’ Method gives an ever deepening awareness and understanding of the body and how it can move with ease. Hilda holds a Bachelor of Arts in English from UC Berkeley
