Althea Hondrogen, ACSM

“I am Pilates based with over 25 years experience in the Health Fitness and Pilates industry as well as working side by side Physical Therapists for over 10 years. In 1997, I opened one of the first Pilates Studios in Pacific Heights, called Defy Gravity. I always like to learn new techniques to help my clients ease their pain and focus on continuing education units every year.”


Pilates based training with additional weight training and mobility routines. I practice hands on MET (hands on fascial release) technique if the client is restricted in any movement patterns. After 55 our bodies have aches and pains that are usually stuck in one way or the other. Let’s explore to find a movement solution for you.
