Barbara Stamis’ belief in the body’s innate ability to heal began in 2001 when, through the Pilates Method, she began recovering from her dance injuries. Barbara has been teaching Pilates since 2002, and also studies yoga, movement, and the miraculous workings of the human form. Craving a deeper understanding of the method in its purest essence, in 2013 Barbara discovered Jay and Vintage, where she has completed the Masters Program THE WORK. Barbara truly enjoys watching her students’ bodies and lives transform through this method. When she isn’t teaching, Barbara is out surfing, enjoying the Santa Monica sun and connecting with others on ways to live an empowered and self-healing life.
