She studied Pilates, barre, and reformer with Master Trainer Zayna Gold at Balanced Body University in Belmont, MA. Wickson always knew that she wanted to create her own certification program called the C_Method®. Creating this method has been a way to share the tools and choreography, with other instructors to teach a certain formatted class, while managing to maintain the unique and beautiful creativity of each trainee. Striving to help other instructors learn how to teach, cue, and correct form appropriately, she continued to train and teach for another seven years, becoming a well known and loved instructor in her community.
Cally’s intrigue and love for helping women then guided her to add to her practice of work by becoming a Postpartum and Labor Doula. In 2015 she trained with ProDoula and started her journey through postpartum and prenatal care. She has created a prenatal and postnatal barre workout that is safe, yet effective for mothers who want to remain optimally healthy before, throughout, and after their pregnancies.
Wickson has crafted special choreography, along with making her clients and other instructors just as excited about their time spent working out as she is. “It’s not just a work out but a way of life, mentally, physically, and emotionally.” She continues to create more trainings to share her enthusiasm and knowledge of choreography while shaping not only people, but a future of safe, innovative barre routines. She is excited to finally open her own doors to C_Wickson Studios located in Windham,NH.
