Nicole Frederic-Lindo began her Pilates practice in 2001 with her first mat class and was immediately captivated by this “new” movement. Although she took classes on and off throughout the years, it was a rotator cuff surgery in 2011 that motivated Nicole to immerse herself in the method she loved so much. By committing herself to her Pilates practice she was able to stabilize, strengthen and mobilize her weak shoulder as well as strengthen her whole body. Pilates gave her the confidence to pursue her dream of becoming an instructor in order to help others achieve and surpass their fitness goals.
She completed her first certification in 2011 from Sanctuary 7, and opened her studio in 2012. This certification fueled her thirst for more knowledge so she enrolled and completed her second teacher training in 2014 from Polestar Pilates, a contemporary and rehab-based Pilates program. in 2015 Nicole completed The Heritage Training™, a graduate course which passes on the work of Pilates Elder, Kathy S. Grant, taught by her protege, Cara Reeser. In 2017 Nicole completed her fourth certification through Real Pilates Teacher Training, Alycea Ungaro's Classical Pilates program. Through her studies, Nicole continues the lineage of first generation Pilates teachers, Kathy s. Grant and Romana Kryzanowska.
Nicole is originally from Washington, D.C. where she was born and raised and where she earned her B.A. in Psychology. She is a Certified Nutrition Coach and a Certified Essential Oils Coach. Empowering her clients to achieve their wellness goals through holistic practices is her mission! She feels blessed to be part of such an amazing community and hopes to start a life-long journey of health, happiness and well-being with you.
