About Dana Dreifus:

Studio Owner, Certified Barre, Pilates, and Core Align Instructor, NASM Certified Personal Trainer

My interest in movement started after sustaining a spinal injury in a car accident. I found that keeping my body and core strong through varied movements reduced my back pain in a way no other forms of therapy could. This inspired me to share with others what had helped me so much.

I want people to have fun in my classes, to feel comfortable, to learn and practice an increased awareness of alignment and proper biomechanics techniques, and to sweat!

I have studied more than 2,000 hours of movement training from multiple teachers, physical therapists, and movement educators. For the past 10 years, I’ve worked in the field in my movement studios, at PT clinics and at top local Pilates studios, and I’ve developed my professional skills while I’ve continued to practice intelligent movement for my own injuries. Because I came to a movement practice after being injured, I deeply understand how difficult it can be to start the movement rehabilitation process, and I will always be sensitive to your particular needs.

I have completed certifications in Barre and Core Align instruction through Balanced Body, and I am currently in a yoga teacher training program at Whole Yoga in Denver. I also completed a 500-hour Pilates certification.

Prior to earning my Pilates Certification, I graduated from CU-Denver with a B.S in biology, and I worked in an internal medicine office in Capitol Hill for seven years, so I’m very experienced in working with doctors who help patients through rehabilitation efforts.
