Meet Liz

Health + Wellness for All Ages
Liz Daley, Pilates Instructor Williamsburg VA

I began dancing at the age of 6 and continued my study through high school, college and into my professional career in New York City. I’ve had so many amazing mentors, directors and teacher who have each given me so much love and knowledge, and now it’s time for me to give this back.

I’ve always loved the beauty of the body in motion and the focus and strength required to perform not only as a soloist, but as part of a duo or group.  The experience is just like flying. Literally like flying if you are working with a partner doing various lifts. There is nothing quite like it, but Pilates comes close.  Check out our schedule of Pilates Classes.

I was introduced to Pilates by Teresa Tompkins in 2004.   After years as a student, Teresa became a cherished mentor sharing with me her knowledge of rehabilitative exercise techniques.  Sadly in 2019 Teresa lost her long battle with Lyme Disease and Breast Cancer and Williamsburg Pilates Studio strives to continue her legacy.

I love Pilates because it is a gentle form of exercise that still packs a punch. It’s amazing for both the mind and body. If you’re not into the traditional gym experience, but still want a great workout… then Pilates is right for you.

On weekends, I’m a Wedding DJ and Wedding Planner which is seriously one of the hardest and funnest jobs ever!

I love my two kitties and my sweet husband Steve of 24 years.   I also love sitting in the sunshine, watching the water and drinking margaritas and/or cosmos.  

Celebrate Life!
