Hannah - Certified Pilates Instructor, Registered Yoga Teacher

Hannah

Hannah Feltham was born in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Labrador, Canada. She began training in dance at the three years old under the tutelage of Kathleen Hicks. After her family moved to Ontario, she trained for six years at the Quinte Ballet School of Canada.

more about Hannah...
In 2014 she graduated from the School of Alberta Ballet. Hannah graduated from the Certificate Program at The Ailey School in 2017. While at The Ailey School she had the opportunity to perform Mr. Ailey’s ballet “Memoria” with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater during their 2016 season at New York City Center. Her background is primarily in dance, however, it was while she was training at the The Ailey School in New York City that her passion for Pilates and Yoga began.

When she experienced low back pain for a short period of time, she sought physiotherapy in NYC and they told her that her core needed strengthening and to give Pilates a go. She had done some Pilates growing up as a dancer but never knew how much enjoyment she would get through exploring new studios and teachers. Understanding the mechanics and the benefits it had on her body, assisted her dancing immensely. She wanted to dive deeper into the method and received her Pilates Mat Certification through Linda Farrell in NYC.

After graduating from the The Ailey School, she began teaching in NYC with New York Optimum Performance as an Independent Contractor. She also taught at the Savitri Studio on the Upper East Side run by Jessica Cadden Osborne. It was a highlight to sub at Yoga Works after being inspired by the beautiful studio through a friend and mentor Erin Wilson. She loved teaching in NYC and she auditioned for many dance opportunities, landing one in Osaka Japan at Universal Studios. While she performed there for two years, she taught Pilates to many coworkers,as well as, having appearances as a guest teacher with lululemon in Osaka. In her second year, she became interested in getting her 200 RYT Yoga Certification through the Vancouver Sky Studio under the guidance of Yu Slater. She has discovered an amazing appreciation for both Pilates and Yoga, as the two methods have benefited her as a professional dancer. She has found that they have become an integral part of her cross training and have given her peace of mind in her hustle life.
