Meet Julie Golla of Julie Ann Pilates in Studio City and South Pasadena

Today we’d like to introduce you to Julie Golla.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Julie. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I started Pilates as a fitness routine, firstly at a studio in Santa Monica. Unfortunately, due to the lack of training the teachers had with injury prevention I developed severe knee pain and issues. I followed on to do matwork pilates from my college with Leslie Porter who was very influential in my choice of continuing on to become an instructor! Finding the perfect workout for both your body and mind is something that Pilates does give you in such a way that you can use those skills in everyday life!

In time, my knee pain has gone away and I am now seeing how wonderful the years of Pilates can do to one’s body and mind.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I think the biggest challenge is finding my ideal places to work. As an independent contractor focused on rehabilitative and pre/postpartum fitness, it has not been very easy to find studios well equipped with enough props for modifications!

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Julie Ann Pilates – what should we know?
I believe everyone deserves to be well and know what wellness feels like. As an avid holistic health and injury prevention teacher, I want to bring the idea of wellness to everyone! It should be easily accessible to all regardless of race, income status and location! Not to mention all the issues people are facing with medical insurance it can seem daunting to get the help that they need.

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
I’m focused on you, the client. Giving you the appropriate exercises and modifications that your body may need. I’m also quite calming to most people, letting them feel like it is more than just a regular fitness class.
