Elizabeth Charlton :

Elizabeth has loved dance her whole life.  When she was five, she began ballet, jazz, tap and gymnastics classes and was a member of her dance and gymnastics clubs in high school. She continued with ballet throughout college and after.  Elizabeth has spent 33 years as a public school educator in Santa Cruz County.  She always incorporated movement and dance into her classroom instruction whether teaching spelling, math or Zumba for kids.  

She discovered the joys of dance fitness with Zumba and has been a Zumba instructor in town since 2009.  Elizabeth took Pilates Mat 1 training six years ago and  later became a certified POP Pilates instructor.  She found POP Pilates to be the perfect synthesis of dance and mind-body exercise.  She was teaching two classes of POP Pilates a week at a local gym until the Shelter In Place lockdown last March.  She is really looking forward to sharing her love of POP Pilates with Pleasure Point Yoga.
