Meet Adwoa

Born to Ghanaian parents who immigrated to Canada in the 1980s and to the USA in the late 90s, Adwoa spent her formative years in the Toronto Metro Area and the southern United States.  She was raised speaking Fanti at home, and learned English, French and Japanese in school.  Being part of an interfaith household with a Baha’i mother and Christian father, she was raised to believe in a Creator who loved all of creation and that “the betterment of the world can be accomplished through pure and goodly deeds”…. With an extended family, scattered across the globe with intercultural and interfaith unions, she cannot help but see all people as one connected human family.

Adwoa spent her adolescence and early adult years in North Carolina.  This is where she earned her Bachelor’s in French and International Studies from UNC Chapel Hill and began her studies and service through the Ruhi Training Institute’s empowerment and community-building programs.  Her Master’s in Education from the University of Alabama opened the doors to teach high school French in Tuscaloosa, Alabama and Fairfax County in Virginia. Adwoa has always loved the opportunity to meet new people and to make connections with them. You will find that she generally finds it easy to put her thoughts into words and loves to hear others’ stories. These may be the qualities that led her to become a Master Social Worker while living in Indiana. She has faith in the links among all things and believes there are few coincidences, and that almost every event can have meaning.

Discovering Pilates

It was during her journey into and through motherhood that Adwoa was introduced to Pilates.  She and her postpartum physical therapist credit Pilates for providing a strong foundation for her recovery and functional well-being after three very different childbirth experiences.  Adwoa was inspired to become a Balanced Body trained Pilates teacher after seeing the organization’s concerted efforts to bring more high-quality Pilates teachers from BIPOC communities into the Pilates world.

Her experience in grassroots community building through the programs of the Ruhi Training Institute have instilled in her a desire to contribute to the betterment of the world and to walk with others on a path of service.  A path where we all become protagonists for change in constant efforts to learn and contribute to our development as individuals, communities and influence the growth of the institutions around us.
