Ariana was born in Seattle, WA and grew up in Dallas, practicing ballet, tap, jazz and modern dance for 20 years. She attended the University of Texas at Arlington with a major in Biochemistry. Ariana began practicing Pilates under Karen Sanzo 12 years ago after a spine injury and that is where her obsession with Pilates began.
