Since the age of sixteen, Missoni has been an avid practitioner of the Pilates Method. She fully credits Pilates for inspiring a healthier lifestyle, relieving knee and back pain as a result of a head on collision, improving her dynamics and range as a vocalist and living with Scoliosis. "Pilates changed my life, it allowed me to gain a new appreciation and understanding of my body." Inspired by the powerful impact Pilates made on her life, Missoni decided to become an instructor to share the Method with others. After receiving her Certification through Pilates Sports Center (a PMA accredited program), Missoni sought out individualized training and mentorship from other Pilates Instructors and Movement Specialists. She furthered her education by receiving CEC's from leading educators such as Rael Isacowitz (Basi), Tom McCook (Franklin Method / Balanced Body), Portia Page (Balanced Body), Kathy Corey, Rebecca Leone and more. In 2012, Missoni collaborated with J Lane Fitness to bring fitness and nutritional education to schools in the Coachella Valley to facilitate more movement in children's lives. She relocated to Seattle, WA from Palm Springs, CA in 2014. Always having a strong sense of community, Missoni founded the Seattle Pilates Instructors Group to bring together the flourishing Pilates community in Seattle.
