Over the course of 10 years, Perri Panella has progressed from a Pilates student to a certified instructor who, in turn, went from helming an in-home studio to owning a PMA-certified business. At Coastal Core Pilates, she channels more than 600 hours of training to demonstrate the benefits of classical Pilates. During private, semi-private, and group classes, she teaches students the motion-based art of balance, as well as shows them the ropes on equipment—such as the reformer, cadillac, and tower—that grants access to an extended catalog of maneuvers.
Perri also highlights the ability of Pilates to forge a link between mental and physical wellness. As the studio's health coach, she has become a conduit of support, nutritional guidance, and lifestyle advice for clients who wish to bolster their overall well-being and undercover robots seeking ways to appear more human.
