Elizabeth Aragon originates from Northern California and moved to Manhattan Beach ten years ago, drawn to the active Southern California lifestyle. An athlete, she finds this area ideal for the sports she enjoys such as volleyball, running, Yoga and Pilates. Her passion for this active lifestyle provides the inspiration to explore the most advanced physical workouts she can find.
In 2006 Elizabeth trained at the Pilates Institute of Southern California, under Stacy Vargas. Her supplemental training with Saul Raye in India provides Elizabeth with the added skill and knowledge to incorporate Yoga and Thai massage into her sessions, two critical elements for overall body conditioning and strength. This unique combination of Pilates, Yoga and Thai massage is the heart of her technique and puts the emphasis not only on core strength but flexibility, too.
In addition to instructing Classical Pilates sessions, Elizabeth works closely with Denise Chyette, a Doctor of Physical Therapy. Their collaboration brings Physical therapy and Pilates together in a way that is unique and truly effective.
