JOURNEY TO MYSELF
Hello! Nice to meet you. I'm Tanesha.
"Do more of what makes you happy" is a plaque sitting on my home office desk. I see it everyday and that's exactly what I am doing. I'm a classically trained Certified Mat Pilates Teacher, POUND , PIIT28 and Pop Pilates Instructor, and AFAA Certified Group Fitness Instructor. As a child I had thoughts of being a teacher yet it wasn't until I became an adult that I realized Pilates was my subject. The more I practiced the more I realized that Pilates was becoming my lifestyle.
Pilates is now my passion, my purpose, the gift I share with others to help them gain complete control of their bodies. A student shared with me that she was in a car accident and suffered from back pain. After a year of chiropractic treatments she still had the pain, but after ONE week of my classes she said that her back pain had drastically reduced.
I received my Pilates Training through Peak Pilates and certifications through POUND Fit and Blogilates. I have a BS degree in Communication Studies from Morgan State University and a MS degree in Publication Design from The University of Baltimore. I spent several years in the corporate world facilitating leadership and practical skills classes for the professionally minded.
In other news, I operate an online boutique called Five Stones which sells all sorts of groovy artisan accessories. I'm a lover of travel. It's one of my favorite things to do. My favorite color is orange, I love God, I'm a wife and mommy to two. When they're not keeping me moving, we'll all head to the beach for a little fun in the sun.
Now when I'm at home I enjoy cooking from scratch, baking homemade goodies with my children, and tending to my seasonal herb and vegetable garden. A green thumb I have not, but I do okay. My quiet time includes meditating, reading or crocheting. I like nice warm baths (sans children) too!
