Neetu White

Neetu's love for Classical Pilates began as a university student in Ottawa trying to reach for those long lean muscles with Mari Winsor and her groundbreakings DVDs. Neetu's drive for Pilates to become a major part of her life started in 2008 when she spent a year in Virginia and trained with Lilia Browning, a Romana Certified Teacher 3 times a week. Classical Pilates opened up a world of focused exercise which gave her the results she was looking for and strength she has always craved. After having her second child in 2015, Lili Viola re-ignited Neetu's love for Pilates and helped her get into the best shape of her life.
 
Helping people is Neetu's calling. Sharing the Pilates Method to help people achieve their goals puts a smile on her face. Neetu's wonderful husband Adam and her two little boys, Milo & Kai keep that smile going.

Siobhan Donnelly

Siobhan is a professionally trained ballet dancer who graduated from Canada's National Ballet School and was first introduced to Pilates while a boarding student there. Siobhan danced and trained around the world until her dance career was cut short by a hip injury. 
 
Siobhan is presently the owner and director of the York School of Dance established in 2001, where she also teaches children in the Lawrence Park Community classical ballet.
Siobhan is passionate about passing on, not only a technical dance foundation to her students, but also a joy within the movement itself. 
 
Siobhan is currently completing her Classical Pilates Teacher Training program at Lili Viola Pilates under the guidance of second generation teacher Chris Robinson and third generation teacher Lili Viola. Her time as a dancer formed a strong mind body foundation which translates well to her current path within the Joseph Pilates method. Siobhan hopes her students take away from her classes an increased confidence to move in harmony with their bodies, and that they continue to build a strong core and body connection. 
 
Siobhan is thrilled to be a part of Team LVP and work at such a vibrant studio in the neighbourhood, where she lives with her husband and two teenage children.
