Our Instructors

Deanna Busch (Owner, Biscuit Hill Pilates)

With a business and equine background, Deanna Busch merged her interests in recreation, health and business with a career as a certified fitness instructor. Her certifications in multiple Pilates disciplines demonstrate her commitment to the practice and its effectiveness as part of an overall healthy living philosophy. Deanna believes in the principles of classical Pilates but uses state of the art applications based on current research to offer clients the most updated techniques. She maintains certifications in Comprehensive Power Pilates and CoreAlign (she is the only fully certified CoreAlign instructor in Vermont). Because Pilates is part of healthy living, Deanna works closely with other professionals including physical therapists, nutritionists, chiropractors and physicians to provide clients with the best individualized instruction possible.

Deanna encourages her clients to put forth maximum effort with every movement. She focuses attention on form and alignment to help clients meet the challenges of the principles Joseph Pilates (founder of the movement) established in the early 20th century: concentration, control, centering, flow and efficiency of movement, precision, and breathing.
