There are a few things you should know about Nancy Castiglioni…

  1. She’s Argentinian {and brings a fiery passionate spirit into everything she does from Pilates to travel to motherhood}.
  2. She moved to the US when she was 17 without speaking a word of English {and has taken this adventurous Spirit around the world as she’s raised her children and built her career}.
  3. Her grandmother escaped Nazi Germany and settled in Argentina {and instilled in her a steady understanding that she could do…and overcome…anything}.
  4. She’s equally comfortable in stilettos and suits or pointe shoes {since she’s been dancing since she was 6 and spent her time in boardrooms before moving to the mat}.
  5. She started her Instagram feed a year and a half ago because when her daughter asked to set up an account {and now has almost 50K followers watching her daily Pilates and fitness videos}.
  6. She’s someone I could spend hours on the phone with {and weeks traveling with} and still find things to talk about because she’s so doggone fabulous.
