Pilates Morning Wake Up


This class is taught by:

Patricia Dominguez

Patricia is a professional Dancer, Fencing coach and Pilates instructor. She started her Pilates journey after several skate board and bicycling accidents that threw her back out of whack, causing extreme & unnecessary pain. To put herself back together she started studying Pilates under Jennifer Morely at the Drexel Pilates program. Through Pilates she found freedom from her pain and new and improved strength! She teaches mat, mixed equipment classes and works with clients one on one.

Marielle Rubin

Originally from Boston, Mari is a recent Philly transplant. Fully trained on the mat through Balanced Body, she is currently enrolled in full apparatus training through the Pilates program at Drexel University. Mari fell in love with Pilates a number of years ago, as the practice taught her to approach her physical and mental health in an intuitive way, and she loved how emotionally empowered and physically strong she felt after each class. She loves how precise and purposeful the practice is, and she wants her students to gain strength, stability and really challenge themselves throughout her classes. While constantly looking to help her clients challenge both their bodies and minds, Mari believes that hard work, discipline and confidence will help them accomplish their goals.

Michele Tantoco

Michele Tantoco is a dancer and movement educator living in Philadelphia, PA. Michele completed her comprehensive pilates training with Jennifer Morley at Drexel University in 2014. She is interested in the practice and teaching of movement (and it's infinite modalities/techniques) as a source of strength, communication, discovery, and creativity. Michele studied biology at Bryn Mawr College (2001) and teaches yoga, pilates, and contemporary dance technique.

Theresa Schweingruber

Theresa's training through Drexel University, under the direction of Jennifer Morley, has
prepared her to teach students of all levels in mat classes and on the Pilates equipment.

As a dancer since the age of 4, she initially became interested in Pilates as a reliable cross-training practice to support her dance endeavors. Her genuine love for movement and the mind-body connection only enhanced her experiences with Pilates, both as a teacherand practitioner.

She hopes to share her practice and understanding with others who are also looking for support through cross-training.
