Our Founder

Emily Bench-Lahrssen

After attending dental school and working as a dentist for five years, Emily decided that dentistry wasn’t her calling.
She needed to MOVE and spend her days in a more active and social setting yet still putting smiles on people’s faces and teaching people how to improve and take care of their own health.

She initiated her Pilates path at Polestar Pilates & Physical Therapy where she had wonderful teachers and mentors. She completed a fully comprehensive Pilates training and became a mentor for their school for two years.

Emily along with her friend and colleague Juan L. Pichardo founded Pilathon back in 2013 with the idea of sharing Pilates and the art of mindful movement with others in a cool, bright, happy environment. A place they call  “Fountain of Youth”.

For her, teaching Pilates isn’t a job,  it’s her passion! She just doesn’t teach Pilates, she IS a Pilates and healthy lifestyle teacher.

Emily is also a Health Coach by the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and combines her love for healthy-happy eating and living with Pilates and meditation.
