fun + CLASSICAL + energetic + eye for form
Summer Reed received her Pilates training at True Pilates in NYC. Her instructors include Sari Mejo-Santos (daughter of Romana Kryanowska), Cynthia Shipley, Jerome Weinberg, and Anthony Rabara. She was taught to have a very strong, pure, Pilates foundation, while being surrounded by people who love what they do. She hopes to share the same traditions and passion with everyone at Uptown Pilates!
She is originally from Austin, TX, where she discovered her love for dance as a small child. At the age of 15, she was invited to move away from home and train intensively with the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre. Pilates was introduced to her there and she started to realize just how much it affected not only her dancing, but her everyday life. After finishing her training in Pittsburgh, she moved to NYC to pursue Pilates. She is a member of the Pittsburgh-based Texture Contemporary Ballet, which she helped found, and has trained consecutive summers with American Ballet Theatre on full scholarship. She has many hobbies including the flute and guitar, painting, cooking, and exploring the city!
As an instructor, Summer hopes to leave every client feeling stronger, more confident in themselves and their bodies, and most importantly – happy! She is so honored and excited to be a part of the Uptown Pilates family!
