Instructors In Our Collective
Philippa Anderson’s interest in movement education stems from her own experience as a dancer and a student of bodywork. Philippa discovered Pilates after suffering an injury during her last year of dance training at the University of Oregon. Initially interested in the method as a tool for her own recovery, Philippa quickly became passionate about imparting the empowering and healing capabilities of Pilates to others. Philippa became certified through STOTT Pilates in Portland, Oregon, in 2005 and since then, her teaching endeavors have taken her as far as Europe and South America. As an instructor, Philippa enjoys facilitating the individual learning process by drawing on her diverse movement background to find creative ways to challenge her students. In addition to teaching Pilates, Philippa is a Teaching Artist in New York City public schools with Dancing Classrooms, a non-profit that teaches Ballroom Dance to children as part of a social development program. Philippa is pursuing STOTT Pilates Instructor Trainer program. She hopes to direct her love for Pilates towards increasing standards within the field and building support for Pilates instructors in NYC.
