100000028_mobileChristie Freeman, owner and director of HHF/PP, first discovered Pilates in   college where she received a BFA in dance from California State University,    Long Beach. After taking a course in Pilates while in college, Christie worked part-time in the dance department’s physical therapy room which was equipped with a cadillac, wunda chair, and reformers. This is where she realized the true benefits of a daily Pilates practice and how much Pilates can help the body. Christie suffered from chronic back, shoulder, and neck pain due to a car accident; during her time in this therapy room she was able to focus her attention on herself and see the amazing results that can be achieved with a little dedication and the Pilates practice.

Christie received her Pilates mat and equipment certification from The Kane School of Core Integration in New York. Christie has attended additional workshops to continue her Pilates training; Pilates through Pregnancy with Debbi Goodman, MSPT, Pre and Post Natal Specialist Pilates Certification with Carolyne Anthony, Kinesthetic Anatomy and Biomechanics of Motion: Spine/Trunk with Irene Dowd, Relax your Neck – Liberate your Shoulders with Eric Franklin, Hip and Knee injuries with Mark Klion/MD and the FAMI intensive taught at Mount Sinai,and is a licensed instructor of Pilates for Buff Bones® .

Christie hopes that all will love the way they feel as much as she does after an invigorating Pilates session whether it is for fitness, injury prevention, or recovery. Pilates works!
