Coach GILMOUR trained under Isabelle Hill in England: Isabelle was a retired French Ballerina who taught Pilates and Ballet in London, England. Isabelle Hill worked with Joseph Pilates before he moved away from Europe and kept in contact during his time in New York. Isabelle Hill is credited with continuing the raw beginnings of the Pilates method in England from those very early days. After studying under Isabelle Hill, Coach GILMOUR eventually moved back to the United States where she studied under Christie Brehm in Texas. Christie Brehm was trained by Ron Fletcher, and Ron Fletcher (like Isabelle Hill) was trained by Joseph Pilates.

Her development and teaching of Pilates Neuromuscular Exercise Methods are considered among the best in the world.
