Arielle Bendory is a Brooklyn based Pilates instructor and dancer. Currently in addition to teaching Pilates, she is a member of two dance companies here in NYC. As a young dancer, Arielle discovered Pilates to be a helpful tool in increasing body awareness. After 14 years of experience with Pilates she decided to become an instructor, receiving her mat and apparatus certification through Erika Bloom. Studying with Erika as well as many guest teachers, she learned various therapeutic protocols and how to work with special populations. It is her belief that Pilates can be used as a form of therapy for physical, mental, and emotional well being. Creating a comfortable and supportive environment is important to her, while also working with her clients to reach their desired goals. Arielle aims to help correct her clients imbalances while giving them a great workout, leaving them feeling lengthened and strong.
