Mickey Cantor contributor writer for Pilates Digest and owner of corebodydesigns.com Mickey was born in New York but raised in Boulder, Colorado after the age of eight. "Learning to ski, ride horses, and hike in the Flatiron Mountains was part of growing up. I was exposed to all kinds of movement, from tennis to yoga."

Mickey was first introduced to Pilates after a debilitating back injury from a snowboarding accident in 2001. After various treatments and rehabilitation, Pilates was the one thing that kept Mickey moving, pain free, and helped her retrain her body for movement for daily activities.

"I love the fact that Pilates is a healing art. It makes my body feel great, and has made me vigilant about mind-body awareness. Looking great comes with feeling great and engaging my brain during my training makes me feel both! My goal is to help clients reach an awareness in their bodies and get the results they want with a minimum amount of pain. And that applies to my own body as well - I just went snowboarding a week in January ('07), and I pushed myself to the limit, without an injury. My endurance was better, and my muscles recovered very quickly. My only real complaint was the zero degree weather.

Mickey graduated from Arizona State University with a B.A in Broadcasting. Mickey was certified in Pilates by the PhysicalMind Institute in Mat Pilates in 2003 and in Pilates Apparatus in December of 2004. She is a graduate of Massage Therapy from the Florida College of Natural Health and is licensed in the State of Florida as well as being nationally certified.
