Hi! I’m Portia,
A mover, teacher, educator, and lover of all things in life...
Portia teaches, writes, travels, takes pictures and loves people and animals, not necessarily in that order. Portia can spot a true ‘Teaser’ a mile away, but never met a ‘Swan’ she didn’t love or a ‘Hundred’ she couldn’t count. Her literary aspirations include writing another book, having already written a successful one called ‘Pilates Illustrated’ where, believe it or not, she has photos of Pilates exercises! She has a profound, yet somewhat disturbing, addiction to chocolate covered cherries and has been known to eat one while ‘Swimming’ or ‘Rolling like a Ball’! She worships her dog Nestle (yes, like the chocolate) and her books. When not giving smooches to Nestle, traveling around the world (both virtually and live) teaching or taking sunrise/sunset photos (fiddler on the roof beware), Portia can be found in the gym or studio (again both live & virtual) teaching a grueling class to sweaty people.
Portia Page has been a Pilates Master Trainer and Teacher for over 20 years and in the fitness industry for 28 years as a teacher, program and fitness director, international presenter and author. Her book Pilates Illustratedhas sold over 10,000 copies. Portia has a BS in Cognitive Science from UCSD and is certified through NCPAP (National Pilates Certification Program), ACE and AFAA.
