Arceli Bacsinila (Pinky)
Pinky is excited to be a full-time resident of Naples, having recently relocated from the Washington, DC area. It also helps that she's an avid golfer, plays tennis and loves the beach! She has been an ACE (American Council of Exercise) certified fitness pro for over two decades, teaching cardio and strength based classes to assorted populations in a variety of settings. Through ACE, she is recognized as a therapeutic exercise specialist, respecting that everyone, including herself, has some type of chronic pain or condition to deal with on a daily basis.
She is a proud member of the prestigious martial arts black belt community, having trained at a leading martial arts studio in Maryland and becoming the studio’s first certified cardio kickboxing instructor. She helped students improve their strength and conditioning, taught self-defense techniques and trained other teachers. Pinky is also a registered yoga teacher recognized by Yoga Alliance, transformed by yoga's powerful mental and spiritual benefits, its healing abilities, and its pursuit for harmony between body, mind, and spirit. She has been teaching various styles of yoga over the last several years, even thoughtfully infusing yoga into her high energy classes. She is also certified in Yin Yoga.
Pinky considers herself a perpetual student who loves to share her diverse and broad background in different modalities to create a fun and unique experience. You'll enjoy her assorted classes to either ‘work out’ or ‘work in’.
