Ana Debasa was born in Santa Cruz California, and moved to LA when she was 18. She dabbled in acting for a little while, but her real passion has always been Animals. She started working with horses at a young age. It was through a horseback riding accident that she found Pilates. It was through Pilates that she was able to heal herself. She then became certified in 1999 at Perfectly Fit, a Classical Pilates Studio. She worked at Perfectly Fit for a few years before coming to Mind-Body Fitness Pilates Studio in 2001, and has worked here ever since! Ana also worked as a vet tech at East Valley Veterinary Clinic as well as running her own animal rescue for many years, One Dog Rescue. Mind-Body Fitness clients have adopted many of her dogs. She has since left Dog and Cat Rescue, and is pursuing her first Love, Horses.
