Riki is a Nationally Certified Pilates Teacher (NCPT), has completed the Intermediate Training Program from The Pilates Center in Boulder, CO, as well as the TheraPilates for Osteoporosis Course with Sherri Betz, an internationally recognized expert on building better bones through exercise. She taught mat and equipment classes at InsideOut Body Therapies in Durham, NC for more than three years before launching Pilates with Riki.
But how did it all start? In a quest to end chronic back pain, Riki began private Pilates sessions while living in Scotland in 2014. After working together for two years, her instructor encouraged her to look into teacher training. She now incorporates exercise into her daily life and fully believes Joseph Pilates' assertion that "movement heals".
As an instructor, she strives to see potential in every client, coaching them to reach for their goals, whether they are looking for more flexibility, deeper breath, increased muscle tone or better balance and coordination. Underlying these beliefs is a sense of fun that winds its way into each and every session.
