DANA MERSON- instructor 

bubbly + CLASSICAL  +  calculated  + precise

Dana was a gymnast growing up in West Orange New Jersey.  She acted, sang and danced, studying musical theatre at the University of Rhode Island (BFA) and Circle in the Square (NYC).  Four years ago, she discovered Pilates.  She saw what it did for a healthy body and mind and it became her calling. She is trained in Romana Pilates and studied with Sari Mejia Santo (daughter of Romana Kryzanowska), Jerome Weinberg, and Cynthia Shipley at True Pilates here in New York. 

You may recognize Dana as the smiling face helping behind the front desk at Uptown Pilates West Side.  Here she has had the opportunity to observe the different teaching styles of the various instructors and incorporate that with what she has learned from Romana. Now she is smiling even more as she gets to share with you her own classical style of Pilates.  She is very excited to be working at Uptown Pilates and looks forward to meeting her new clients.



** Dana teaches at the Upper East Side & West Village locations.  Please be mindful of location when booking**
