Gianna, originally from Denver Colorado, moved to San Diego after attending Arizona State University. She has always been very active and having played competitive year round soccer for most of her life has realized the importance of taking care of your body and preventing injury. She was introduced to Pilates at a young age by her mother; they would watch mat Pilates videos on VHS in their living room using resistance bands and Pilates balls. When she moved to San Diego and tried a reformer class for the first time she was hooked. She attended classes nearly everyday before realizing she had found her calling and became a PMA certified Pilates instructor in reformer, EXO chair, springboard and cadillac within one year.
