A Tessa Van Wade Fitness Studio
PILATES AND DANCE INSTRUCTOR
I grew up in Southern Virginia then moved to Hawai’i in 2005. From a young age my passion for movement was sparked through dance - from hiphop to ballet, jazz, modern, contemporary. Dance has taken me around the world and the USA. Throughout many moves and a high demanding physical career — like so many of us — my over all health took a back burner to my career and life. I forgot about taking care of my body & health. Through various wake up calls, sustaining and stewarding my body became increasingly important. I tried acupuncture, regular massage, saw different types of physicians, but nothing has restored my body like Pilates! I completed my Comprehensive Pilates Certification through BASI Pilates in California. (I have since had a baby and can still testify that Pilates is an amazing way to restore the body!) I love offering that same restoration to my clients. When they finish a session with me and tell me, “I feel better, I feel taller”, I know I have given them a true Pilates session.
Don’t let your body become a forgotten body.
