Sharon Cannava is a Classical Pilates instructor with a warm and integrative teaching style. Originally trained in 2004 by Joseph Pilates' protégé and master trainer Romana Kryzanowska, Sharon earned additional certification from the Pilates Method Alliance in 2009. A lifelong student of movement, Sharon holds a B.S. in Dance Education from NYU, and is a 200-hr. RYT Yoga instructor certified by Bamboomoves in Englewood, NJ. She is a proud graduate of Jason Ray Brown's 108-hour Anatomy Studies for Movement Professionals course in NYC, and a Level-1 Yoga Tune Up® instructor, a method that includes self-care therapy ball techniques she finds delightfully effective for her private Pilates clients.
With love and deep respect for the original Pilates Method, Sharon is inspired by the curiosity, creativity, and movement science research that is shaping the future of teaching this transformative work. Sharon lives in Mahwah, NJ, with her husband and two young sons, and is truly grateful to be on board as a teacher and student at Authentic Pilates Learning Center.
