Joey Anne Penachio, Pilates Instructor
Education: B.S. Chemical Engineering with Anthropology minor University of Rochester
Joey became a Pilates instructor in 2011 after six years of being a student of the form. Pilates has transformed her both inside and out. She holds a certification from the Pilates Method Alliance, the only nationally accredited Pilates certifying body. Joey continues her professional development through workshops with Pilates masters. Her development has extended to learning techniques from Douglas Heel, an internationally renowned speaker and manual therapist of professional athletes. Joey benefits from her extensive experience teaching in rehabilitative settings. As a mother of three boys, including one with a physical disability, she is also sensitive to the changing needs of her students over time. In her spare time she enjoys Pilates (of course), travel, and hanging out with her kids.
