Cassy DaSilva is the owner of Coreshape in La Jolla, California. She has been an avid student of core methodolgy since early childhood. Growing up she was actively involved in figure skating, dance, gymnastics, and began studying Pilates in East Greenwich, Rhode Island in 1994. By 1998, she went to New York to become a trained certified instructor in the Authentic Method of Pilates. She was a pupil of the “intensive” program at The New York Pilates Studio® and trained under the watchful eyes of Romana Kryzanowska (protege of Joseph Hubertus Pilates) and her daughter Sari Pace, at Drago’s and 2121 Broadway. She ultimately earned my certification in 1999.
Since then she has completed continuing education courses with Romana and Sari. In 2002, she decided to enter into the Gyrotonic Certification Program in Boston, Massachussetts. During all this, in 2000, she opened her own studio called Body Architecture in Barrington, Rhode Island. The studio specialized in Pilates, Gyrotonic, Yoga, and weight training, and still does to this day. Recently in 2004, she decided to relocate to La Jolla, California, and start combining all her certifications and trainings to really specify and teach each client precisely what is needed from each method: totally integrate and implement a system that brings balance, strength, stretch, and flexibility to the body.
