Local California girl, Davida has a background in competitive swimming as a team member at the Rose Bowl aquatics center. After college she found herself spending long hours at a desk. Not accustomed to this sedentary lifestyle, she soon found herself craving a form of exercise that could keep her in shape, restore flexibility and alleviate the sore, stiff muscles she had developed. As fate would have it, one day she walked into a Pilates studio and found the experience to be life altering. She enthusiastically began attending reformer classes. With much encouragement from her amazing mentors, she decided to pursue a career in Pilates with the goal of helping her clients find the same mind-body connection and fulfillment that she did. Davida completed her formal Pilates education through both Rise Sheppard Pilates and Club Pilates. In her free time, Davida loves hiking with her Boston Terrier through the hills of Griffith Park, reading, watching old Hollywood movies, and dining al fresco.
