Yael Turkiewicz's studies in movement followed a staircase of disciplines, taking her from dance to aerobics to Pilates and eventually to yoga. She now holds certifications to teach the latter three fields, though she hardly considers her learning process complete—she attends continuing-education workshops to further explore the physics of the body. At her studio, she and her teaching staff blend the deep stretches of Pilates with yoga poses and light weight training.
