Holly has been in the fitness/wellness industry since 1994. In 1996 she began studying Exercise Science at Wichita State University and completed her Bachelors degree with a minor in Gerontology in May of 1999. It was after graduation that Holly began classical teacher training with 2nd generation master Pilates teacher Aliesa George. She completed her training and certification in 2001 through Aliesa and her company Powerhouse Fitness Systems, now Centerworks Pilates. Holly and her husband moved to Citrus County, Florida in 2000 where she opened a small Pilates studio in Homosassa located inside the Achievement Center Physical Therapy. Holly became a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT) in March of 2004. She has continued to expand her massage therapy practice with various bodywork approaches beyond Swedish, Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release and Trigger Point therapies. Modalities such as Craniosacral Therapy, Kinesio Taping, Hot Stone Massage, Neurokinetic Therapy, Bamboo Fusion and more.
Holly began contemporary training with Balanced Body Pilates in 2015 and completed their comprehensive bridge program certification. She is also certified through the Pilates Method Alliance. She embraces all styles of Pilates and Massage Therapy that serve a purpose. The biomechanics of movement so precise with Pilates paired with the anatomical knowledge required of massage therapy has helped to develop the comprehensive approach Holly takes with her clients.
Holly has a love of anatomy & physiology and never misses a chance to read or learn something new. She will observe orthopedic surgeries and physical therapy sessions when she can and when available. She continues to seek out additional training beyond the required CEU’s for Pilates & Massage. She routinely will travel to other studios for lessons or take lessons online and makes a point to have a massage herself at minimum once a month.
Citrus Pilates & More Inc. is the culmination of a 20+ year journey for Holly. She is happy to bring together in one place; the knowledge of anatomy, proper movement, body awareness and self care that we all ultimately need.
