Pilates For Youth
Youth Exercise Training

Celeste specializes in teaching Pilates for the youth population – this means children 5 – 12 and adolescents 13- 18. Celeste believes that the principles that influenced the protocols for teaching Pilates to this population are the foundation for all exercise and sporting practice for Youth and encourages healthy habits and posture for life.  This means that the guidelines based on physiology and development that are behind the protocols for the Pilates repertoire chosen for each respective age category of youth in the pre-pubescent, pubescent, and post-pubescent age groups are the basis for functional and foundational movement for any physical activity of these ages – whether day to day activity and play or structured elite sporting activity.


Celeste has been working with youth of all ages in both group and private settings for over 15 years.  With the publication of Pilates for Children and Adolescents, a Manual of Guidelines and Curriculum’ that she directed and co-authored for the Pilates Method Alliance, she is eager to share her knowledge and expertise not only with Pilates teachers, but with all practitioners that work with the youth populations – in physical education, sports specific training, and physical therapy.


She offers workshops and trainings that are both general and specialty driven for the practitioner.  These workshops and trainings will prepare the respective practitioner for the specific needs of the youth groups they work with and enable them to create foundational, safe, functional, and effective programming that enhances any program or practice.
