A native of Buffalo, NY, Gregory is a classically-trained Pilates instructor who first came to the practice after years of organized sports left him with multiple injuries and the need for a major shift in his relationship to physical activity. Pilates taught him to take control of his body and thereby heal himself through a new understanding of movement. Recognizing such a discovery was too powerful to keep to himself, he decided to share what he had found with others and became certified to teach. After more than twelve years in Los Angeles, he recently moved back to the East Coast and currently lives in Sag Harbor, NY. Beyond his work in movement, Gregory dedicates his time to writing.
