Elaine has a background in dance, including competitive cheer, ballet, jazz and hip hop. Sadly, her dancing journey ended when she sustained several injuries, but quickly found Lagree to help her through her fitness slump. She found the Lagree method to be highly effective yet low impact on her ailing joints.
Her favorite nemesis on the megaformer is giant reverse snake!
A lifelong fitness enthusiast. Came upon Lagree in Brooklyn, NY following a knee injury in 2012 and in search of a low impact butt kicking workout. I fell in love instantly with every aspect of the method. How much stronger I became especially in my core and how incredibly challenging it continues to be no matter how many classes I take. It never gets easier and I always feel stronger. Moved to the Bay Area from NYC in 2014 and began a new adventure as group fitness instructor. I LOVE guiding people through exercises with proper technique and helping people feel stronger in their bodies which in turn builds their confidence. It is such a complete joy.

I love being active and doing anything adventurous! I’ve been teaching Lagree for about 5 years and love that it never gets boring and continues to be challenging. I’m also very passionate about travel! I recently got back from a 6 month round the world trip with my husband. So if I’m not in the studio, I’m probably planning another adventure (or eating dark chocolate)!

Megan, an East Bay native, has been twisting, pulsing, and activating those slow twitch muscle fibers since 2011. Before finding this method of high intensity pilates, Megan was never a big fan of working out, but as it turns out she just hadn't found the right fitness class yet! After discovering the workout Megan left her corporate marketing job to raise tiny humans and teach others how to move "slow and controlled" through french twists, scrambled eggs, and donkey kicks.
