About 

Emelia Ardito

Emelia is an Apprentice/ Instructor in the Romana's Pilates Teacher Training Program, who has always had a passion for fitness, adventure, and cooking. Her love for cooking and travel enabled her to move from her home state of North Carolina to Hawai'i, where a friend introduced her to Contemporary Pilates. After relocating back to North Carolina, she began sessions with a Romana's Trained instructor. Practicing classical pilates empowered Emelia; she began to see herself in a different light- walking taller with more confidence, increased body awareness, and an overall feeling of lightness. With this, she felt a calling to the rigorous Romana's Teacher Training Program. Emelia is dedicated to sharing her passion with others so they can experience the same self-empowerment Romana's brought her. Emelia recently moved to Pittsburgh from Virginia Beach, where she studied under Level III Teacher Trainer, Brenna Hosang. She will finish her Teacher Training with Lisa Pellow at Touchstone Pilates as she makes her new home in Pittsburgh.
