200 pixels ChantillChantill Lopez
Certified Pilates Teacher
"After more than 20 years of teaching, 15 of which have been spent teaching Pilates, yoga, dance, meditation and other movement modalities to a complex variety of folks, I am proud to be a teacher of teachers. Building relationships with teachers who want to be unabashedly amazing at what they do — teachers who want to move beyond the clockwork pieces of technique and blow the top off their potential – is what excites me most about my work and keeps me inspired. During this time I’ve also had the opportunity to join the Balanced Body Faculty as well as develop an in-depth year-long international live and online mentoring program. My current focus is on building and refining the Skillful Teaching mentoring program so teachers around the world have access to thoughtful, inspiring, and continuing education and support no matter where they are on their teaching path. These days I teach throughout the U.S. and offer online coursework and support to teachers around the world. I actively teach out of several studios in the Northern California & Bay Area  including Sonoma and Napa counties, Sacramento and San Francisco."
