Heather Holloway McCash

Hi! I’m Heather. I’m a Certified Pilates Instructor, Author of But First... A Memoir of a Backwards Life and a survivor of Lyme Disease. Teaching Pilates is my full time job. I love introducing the exercise method of Pilates with students that have never tried it before. I have experience teaching students that are pre and post knee and hip replacement surgery, auto immune disorders, neck and back pain and people that just enjoy movement. My students love my classes because I empower them to make strong choices about their movement practice that helps empower them to make strong choices in life. My passion for Pilates is contagious. My own Pilates practice helped me with my recovery from Lyme Disease and to have the energy and desire to live the life I love. I live in Nashville, TN with my husband Steven.

"An interesting and mostly fun read. Heather reminds me of a modern-day "That Girl" whose trials include everything from dating to career to chronic illness." - Kathy

"What a great pool book! The New York City life vignettes of a pint-sized powerhouse author had me laughing a dozen times & prepared me for sober topic of "Ticked Off (Summer 2006). Heather definitely has a way with words, and the description of her battle with Lyme Disease is probably the most eloquent of all."- Robbie Grayson 

"Heather's memoir was sprouted with moments of triumph as well as defeat! It's an honest story filled with perseverance. I laughed, shed tears, and closed the book encouraged! No matter your journey, this is a book you'll want to add to your bookshelf." - Amazon Customer
