Nicole Briggs: Studio Owner, Instructor, Eternal Student
When the Vintage Pilates studio was in full swing, there was a lively synergy between the clients, THE WORK™ students, workshop attendees and staff. We saw the studio as more than a place where people came to take lessons. It was a laboratory where everyone — including (perhaps especially) the staff instructors — were constantly learning and sharpening their skills. Nicole Briggs epitomized this philosophy to the hilt. She was among the first ever workshop attendees at Vintage Pilates. Soon she was coming for regular private and group lessons, then she got into THE WORK™ and when she completed that program, she became a staff instructor. Through it all, she reliably took several lessons a week, and attended many workshops and seasonal camps. She was always curious, always studying, always observing and thinking. You could practically see the wheels in her mind turn whenever she was in the studio.
Nicole Briggs is also co-owner of Strong Body Pilates in Toluca Lake — a popular studio she founded in 2011, which will host Vintage Pilates’ Weekend with Jay events in 2020 and beyond!
We were dying to ask her what she learned from her time teaching at Vintage Pilates. Here is her answer, below:
