Certified Pilates Teacher, Arica Bronz is a lifelong student of mindfulness and movement, and believes that tapping into the inherent connection between the two can bring people’s lives into balance.
Arica began studying classical ballet at a young age and went on to receive her BA in Dance and Education from Hampshire College, where she was first introduced to Pilates. After apprenticing with classical Pilates teachers and receiving her yoga teacher certification, Arica was fortunate to discover Polestar Pilates. This is a training approach that emphasizes critical thinking, evidence based research, and rehabilitation based Pilates education. Today she is a mentor for Polestar Pilates and has over 15 years of teaching experience.
Arica finds great joy in helping her clients achieve wellness and happiness by easing chronic pain, recovering from injury or illness, or simply regaining - and even surpassing at times - the physicality of their youth. She has a talent for using clever yet crystal-clear images and metaphors as cues to help her students achieve proper alignment and optimal biomechanics.
She is also known for the kindness and empathy she brings to her style of instruction. Clients who come to Arica for physical strengthening often find their minds and hearts benefit as well.
At All Wellness Physical Therapy and Pilates, Arica has the opportunity to work side by side with Physical Therapists, sharing ideas and creating collaborative solutions that help clients to heal though movement. She is committed to learning, teaching, and growing alongside her clients.
