Emily brings nearly two decades of experience as a Pilates Instructor & professional dancer to her work as a Physical Therapist. Though her background as a dancer feeds her love of movement analysis and a deep appreciation for the body’s intelligence and design, it was Emily’s enthusiasm for working one on one with her Pilates students that drove her to pursue a career in Physical Therapy. Emily strives to educate her patients not only about their diagnosis, prognosis and plan of care, but about the mind-body connection that can facilitate healing and lasting change. Emily holds a Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Hunter College and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of North Carolina, Winston-Salem, NC. She has completed clinical affiliations in Acute bedside, neurological inpatient and orthopedic outpatient settings. Additionally, she is a certified Pilates Instructor through the Kane School of Core Integration.
Michael Plude is a graduate of Long Island University’s Doctor of Physical Therapy program and became interested in PT after sustaining multiple shoulder injuries. During his time in PT school, Michael gained an appreciation for the healing power of human touch and for viewing the patient as a whole rather than a set of symptoms and diagnoses. This led to further advanced studies in manual therapy through the Institute of Physical Art. Michael has taken courses such as Core First Strategies, Functional Mobilization I, Functional Mobilization II, Functional Mobilization Lower Quadrant, and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation as well as completed his final two clinical rotations at IPA associated clinics in Chicago and Connecticut. Michael is currently in the process of completing the coursework to sit for the Certified Functional Manual Therapist exam. Additionally, Michael is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the NSCA.
