BootyBarre® Instructor, Pilates Instructors
Born and raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia, she started dancing at the age of three at Halifax Dance, where she completed the Russian ballet syllabus. At the age of 15, Miriah completed her teacher training and, at the same time, was first introduced to Pilates.
She then began teaching creative movement, ballet, hip hop, and jazz to all ages. During this time, she also studied International Development studies at Dalhousie University. Miriah’s ongoing desire to be a professional dancer led her to move to Montreal to complete LADMMI’s professional contemporary dance program.
It was here that her love of teaching and Pilates grew into a dream to someday open her own Pilates studio. After graduating in 2009, she danced for companies in Vancouver, New York, Toronto, Halifax, and Montreal for Louise Bedard Danse, Manon Oligny, Heidi Strauss, Andrew Tay, Alejandro de Leon, and David Pressault.
Miriah then went on to take many training courses such as her STOTT PILATES certification, BootyBarre® certification, and many Eric Franklin workshops. Miriah has taught at numerous studios and gyms around Montreal. She is dedicated to helping clients obtain their goals and finds it exciting to watch changes happen in their bodies, either in terms of structural alignment or musculature. She is a co-owner of Studio Set.
Born in Montreal, Geneviève started dancing at a very young age. She completed her training at l’École Supérieure de Ballet du Québec, and at 17 years old joined the Jeune Ballet du Québec. She then went on to dance professionally for Mandala Sitù, Cas Public, Manon fait de la danse, and Dave St-Pierre, with whom she performed locally in Quebec and internationally.
In addition, she founded the dance company Evolucidanse, where she acted as artistic and general director in addition to choreographer, and dancer. Years of training and experience allowed her to develop a high level of physical fitness and a strong understanding of the body.
Her interest in Pilates then became a natural path in her career. With the desire to deepen her knowledge of the benefits of Pilates, Geneviève became a STOTT PILATES instructor. She has taken several trainings and workshops such as, pre and post natal, the Franklin method, and specializes in athletic training and rehabilitation.
It was after teaching at numerous studios around Montreal that she decided to open Studio set with her business partner, Miriah Brennan. Her experience in dance and Pilates has provided her the insight to be able to help clients reach their goals, while respecting their physical and personal limits, find harmony and balance within the body, and improve posture.
