Ani Esraelian
Ani was born and raised in the Central Valley of California and after spending some time living in the Bay Area, she decided to settle in beautiful San Diego in 2010. Always trying to live an active and healthy lifestyle, she was looking for a type of exercise that she could truly connect with and enjoy. Her passion and excitement for Pilates was born after taking her very first class. It did not take long for the method to prove results for her in increased strength, flexibility, improved posture, and overall body awareness. She has completed Chakra's certification training program and could not be more excited! While improving and refining her own skill, she looks forward to being able to share this passion with others and really challenge her classes to work hard and reap the benefits!

Outside of Pilates, Ani loves to spend her free time hanging out with her husband and friends, relaxing at the beach, traveling or sailing.

Bethany Jacobs
Bethany is born and raised in the sunshine of Southern California. With a lifetime of exercise and sport experience and love, and knowledge of the body sciences as a nurse, she has found a way to combine what she loves- helping others and moving purposely! There is nothing more beautiful than how our bodies are created to move and thrive - from improving athletic movement to giving a weak body improved movement, Pilates is for everyone- helping with control, stabilization, and strengthening. It has been her joy to participate in the Chakra Pilates Training Program, working alongside clients to achieve their goals!

Outside of Pilates, she works as a registered nurse and can otherwise be found surfing all around San Diego.

Tara Manley
Tara has lived and traveled various places and is proud to have enjoyed the past 5 years living in Southern California, even though she still often refers to “home” as central Wisconsin and Minneapolis. Tara's attraction to Pilates began several years ago when she was having joint problems and couldn’t move around very well. Always an avid exerciser and always having had a passion for fitness, she was at a loss not being able to do her usual running, walking, biking, or even yoga practice. Pilates was the one form of exercise that she could physically do at the time, and still get a great over-all workout. And in the process, she couldn’t help but learn more about her body - all the connections and mechanics that are involved in proper movement and alignment. The knowledge she gained of the overall balance of mind, body and spirit in the process of becoming certified has been invaluable to her. She feels that to be able to give this knowledge to others is truly a privilege.

Chakra Pilates is owned and directed by Mariel Filippone. Since 1999, Mariel has worked with clients with chronic back pain, Sciatica, Degenerative Disc Disease, Scoliosis, rehabilitation for neck injury, Hip/Knee problems, Prenatal and Postnatal, and many others...

Mariel's recognition as a "Second Generation" Master Instructor under Lolita is one of her greatest achievements. Mariel has also studied Pilates with various Master Instructors under Romana in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Chicago, and has attended workshops all over the world! Some of Mariel's favorite memories include training Pilates in Japan, South Korea, Thailand and Portugal. Mariel truly enjoys preserving Classic Pilates, training apprentice instructors how to teach, and has enjoyed teaching pre & post-natal "Mommy & Me" classes for years! Mariel is PMA certified, comprehensively trained Pilates Instructor of the Pilates Method, Member of the PMA, and Member of IDEA. Mariel is also the Head Facilitator of the Chakra Pilates Instructor Comprehensive Instructor Program. Mariel is most proud that the Chakra studio is repeatedly voted (through many different voting polls) as one of the BEST Pilates Studio in all of San Diego County!
