Thais is the founder and owner of Synergy Pilates and Wellness. She began her first career as a Special Education and Kindergarten teacher in Seattle in 2000. As a dancer growing up, she was always intrigued by Pilates. When she took her first Pilates mat class in Seattle in 2003, she was hooked, so much so that she began her STOTT certification training shortly thereafter.
She truly began to realize the benefits of Pilates while training for a half-marathon in 2004. Pilates noticeably helped balance overly tight muscles and kept her injury free throughout her training. Thais completed her STOTT certification and began her Pilates career by initially instructing her teaching colleagues after school and working at a small studio in Seattle. When she relocated to Denver in 2006, she ended her Elementary Education career and began her dream job as a full-time Pilates instructor.
After instructing for 6 years in various studios in the Denver and Castle Rock areas, she opened her first studio in Sedalia, CO in 2012. Thais went on to open her second studio in the Washington Park neighborhood of Denver, CO in 2014. Thais loves going to work every day and having the opportunity to help so many clients realize their fitness goals with Pilates. She loves that the Pilates method has something for everyone and can meet the needs of elite athletes, fitness novices and those recovering from injuries. When Thais is not in the studio, you can find her outside enjoying everything that Colorado has to offer. She loves to take walks in Wash Park in between clients, ski, bike and hike with her husband and two children.
