Amy Garner

Pilates Haven co-owner

Romana’s Pilates Certified Instructor

Pilates changed Amy’s life. She was 20 years old when she took her first lesson with Pam Pardi, an inspiring teacher with decades of experience. That first session left her soaked in sweat and exhilarated. Continuing in her training with Pam, Amy quickly saw changes—she was building muscular definition and her loose joints were stabilizing and causing less pain.

Amy knew she wanted to make Pilates her career, to learn everything she could about it. She enrolled in the rigorous Romana’s Pilates certification program in 2009, where she truly discovered the genius of the method and its creator, Joseph Pilates, and his protégé, Romana Kryzanowksa. During her 800-hour-apprenticeship at the historic NYC studio, Amy loved being able to train on the original equipment build by Joseph Pilates himself. The most important thing she learned while completing her certification was the art of working with the body in front of her, to see what that individual needed and was capable of doing.

As an international guest teacher and workshop leader, Amy loves being able to share her knowledge and experience with so many people, especially her clients at Pilates Haven!
