My mission is to help people feel better in their bodies. I believe that full body conditioning as envisioned by Joseph Pilates is the best way to achieve this.

HRN Pilates offers Classical Pilates training, using Gratz and Contrology apparatus built from the original design specifications and mechanics of Joseph Pilates’ own equipment. HRN Pilates has daily offerings of in studio and virtual private and mat classes. Private sessions are composed of a combination of apparatus and mat work.

Hilary Norcross was a professional ballet dancer first dancing with the Washington Ballet, and then American Ballet Theatre where exposure to Pilates went part and parcel with a dancer’s life. Magic Circles and mat work were constant companions. During her time with ABT, Hilary trained at the Robert Fitzgerald studio on 56th street.

After leaving dance, Hilary became a personal and group fitness trainer certifying with NASM. After a hip injury and bursitis sidelined her training in 2014, Hilary returned to Pilates and after a year of training, entered the apprentice program and completed a rigorous 700+ hour training certification with Dorothee VandeWalle at Metropolitan Pilates. In 2022 wanting to work with Karen Frischmann and further develop her teaching skills, Hilary completed Karen’s Classical Progression Program. In 2023, Hilary certified with the National Pilates Certificate Program and gratefully joined Karen’s team as a teaching assistant.

Hilary resides on the Central Coast of California with her husband, son, and menagerie of animals. In her free time, you’ll often find her walking along the coastal beaches of Arroyo Grande, CA.
