Pilates Tonic Instructors

Sydney is a fully certi­fied Pilates instruc­tor through the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA). Before finding Pilates she was a full-time hair­styl­ist at Arrojo-Cutler and educator for Bumble and bumble. She appren­ticed Nick Arrojo (from TLC’s ‘What Not to Wear’) and Rodney Cutler (of Cutler Salons in NYC and Miami) for two years. She believes that this is where she began to develop her “eye” for detail. She found Pilates in 2001 in an effort to relieve back pain she developed from years of hair­styling, a lifetime of bad posture and scol­io­sis. She was so inspired by her own improve­ments with Pilates that she dedi­cated herself to the intense instruc­tor training to become a Pilates teacher.
