Established in 2013.In 2002, after living in the mid west working in professional sports, Emily Wenzel came back to the Tampa Bay area and began personal training, boot camps, teaching step aerobics, spin, strength training and more. She eventually was asked to teach Pilates and was lead on her journey on learning the ‘method’. In 2004, Emily became ill and was diagnosed with a digestive and auto immune condition which led her to further ‘awaken’. During a long challenge of medication and learning about other natural ways to heal the body inside and out, Emily is medicine free and is passionate about sharing and empowering others the magic we have within. After instructing Pilates, Personal Training and teaching herbal classes, food demonstrations and more in the local area for almost a decade, it was time to open Kapok Pilates & Wellness and finally put the elements together and invite other teachers to share their specialties.
