Anne Bishop teaches the connection between the body and the brain through Pilates. She taught anatomy at San Francisco State University and teaches Pilates, Pilates certification, anatomy, biomechanics and posture nationally and internationally. Her teaching is rooted in enhancing student’s body awareness. Anne aligns her teaching not only with anatomical and biomechanical principles but also with how the brain learns and perceives movement. During her master’s program in Mind, Brain and Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education she developed Body Brain Connect. An organization dedicated to bridging the fields of neuroscience research with movement practice.
Her Pilates teaching focus meets students and teachers where they are physically and emotionally. Anne began her own Pilates practice due to a back injury. Through her work with a fantastic instructor, Conna-Lee Weinberg, she fell in love not just with Pilates but also with teaching people. Anne has extensive experience working with students and teachers with injuries, chronic pain and focuses on moving her clients to feel confident in their bodies again. She also worked with professional Olympic athletes in synchronized swimming. Whatever your needs; be it improving your splits for the Olympic qualifications or helping with pain or injuries you will leave feeling worked out and educated. She hopes to share with you her intuitive and intellectual love of movement.
