Dana Hayward


Pilates Instructor

A former dancer, Dana began her Pilates practice in 2010 as a way to manage and rehabilitate chronic injuries and osteoarthritis. She is a certified Classical Advanced Mat instructor through Power Pilates (2018), but also has experience with more contemporary styles, having completed the Fletcher Pilates Preparatory Course (2012). Dana strongly believes that Pilates is for every body, and knows firsthand the benefits it can have for individuals with injuries or other movement limitations.
