Ginger Hedrick Bio

Ginger Hedrick

Hello! I’m Ginger. I am the owner of Pilates of West County. I’ve had the privilege of working with multiple and diverse clients over the last 17 years in this industry.

I work with clients who are professional athletes, promising ballet dancers and athletes, recreational adult athletes as well as individuals who are in pain, post surgery, looking for something different in their workout or just starting their journey to working out and being healthy.

I was formerly a professional ballet dancer and teacher. I have been able to bring the years of discipline, attention to detail, digging deep for results, patience, and perseverance with me into what I offer as a Pilates instructor.

In my studio, we value the importance of caring for the person as a whole: body, mind, soul and spirit. It truly all works together. All of our needs are unique; therefore this is not a “one size fits all” approach! I believe this is an important aspect of our success at Pilates of West County!

In my training to become an instructor, I had the incredible privilege of working with and being trained by Romana Kryzanowska, Joseph Pilates protege’. I am also a teacher trainer for Romana’s Pilates Instructor Training Program. I train and mentor apprentices working toward their certification.

Even though I have been teaching since 2000, I continue to travel often to take classes and seminars from renowned instructors who have taught and groomed me to be an instructor. I want to keep progressing in my own work to be able to offer each of my clients what they deserve – my very best.

When you come to Pilates of West County, we focus on what your needs and goals are personally and devise a plan to help you meet those goals. The training offered at Pilates of West County is genuine, authentic and timeless.

I’m a native Texan but have called St. Louis home for over 20 years. I love travel, good food and wine, friends and family and my studio dog “Piper.” We look forward to seeing you in the studio!
