Ceres Opanowski (C.C.) is a native of New York, graduating with honors from IONA College. After moving to Los Angeles in 2005, she found her passion in holistic body movement.
CC found Pilates in her search for relief from the pain associated with her JRA (Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis). This condition can leave joints and muscles achy and stiff, resulting in loss of mobility and joint replacement. Soon after she began taking Pilates, the pain and stiffness she had experienced for so long began to subside. After only a few sessions, she knew that she had found something wonderful. The more she experienced the Pilates method, the more she fell in love with the concept. She credits Pilates for teaching her to move with ease, developing her self awareness, and encouraging a true, strong, mind/body connection.
Classically trained through the Physical Mind Institute’s renowned Pilates program, Ceres was an apprentice teacher under master instructor Maria Leone of Body Line LA in Beverly Hills, CA., while completing her certification. She has also worked for Dr. Erik Swartz, owner of Back to Total Health in West Hollywood, CA, assisting with the rehabilitation of clients' with neck, back, shoulder and other injuries. Ceres was previously an instructor at the highly regarded Pilates Studio of Rye, and teaches Pilates to children at the esteemed Masters School, Dobbs Ferry, New York.
