Giggi D Yazicioglu, Instructor
A native of Stockholm, Sweden, Giggi's love of the arts prompted her to relocate to Los Angeles to pursue her dream of becoming a professional actor and dancer. Soon after, Giggi was awarded a one year scholarship where she trained under some of the best choreographers in the country. It was through dancing that she was first introduced to Pilates. She found that Pilates helped her maintain her physical, mental and emotional well-being and kept her injury free throughout her rigorous dance career.
Throughout her career, Giggi has been seen on both the small and big screens including American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, America's Got Talent, The Tonight Show, The VMA Music Awards, Michael Jackson's This is It, CSI, and the Muppets. She also appeared in campaigns for Gap, Old Navy, Coca Cola and iPOD. She's travelled around the world for the past 15 years with some of the biggest artists on the music scene including Kanye West, Justin Timberlake, Usher, Snoop Dogg, P. Diddy, Santana, and Celine Dion just to name a few.
Along with completing her full Stott Pilates Certification at the John Garey Pilates Studio, Giggi is also a certified Cardio Barre instructor, a yoga instructor and a dance teacher. Her wealth of knowledge has led many high profile clientele to seek her out.
Giggi has been teaching Pilates for the last fifteen years, sharing her joy, enthusiasm, and passion with a multitude of clients in various levels of fitness. After 15 years of teaching at other studios, she decided it was time to meet another one of her goals to open up her very own Pilates Studio. She is excited to begin a new adventure in her life and to bring her love and experience to people who are looking to improve their quality of life.
