I’ve been doing Pilates for over 15 years at studios in various cities including Seattle, Tucson, Denver and New York, and Stephanie’s Pilates classes are up there as some of my favorites. Every class is different and challenging. Stephanie is welcoming, supportive and knowledgeable. She manages to guide everyone in the class through a dynamic full body workout while seamlessly providing corrections and modifications throughout class, making the workout accessible to students of all abilities and backgrounds, something not every instructor is able to do. You will leave her class feeling stronger and balanced (and maybe a bit sore the next day due to the great workout!).

For me, Stephanie has been the ideal Pilates instructor. She has a warm and encouraging approach, and also a great amount of expertise. Stephanie has a gift of being able to communicate corrections with a very kind and gentle approach. I consistently felt encouraged and supported. She is especially skilled in knowing how to modify or adjust movements for participants with various physical limitations. At first, I was concerned that my back problems might impede my ability to do Pilates. But Stephanie knew what modifications to make during class, helping me to strengthen while avoiding injury.

The individual classes are at once energizing and relaxing, with a friendly and pleasant atmosphere. But the benefits lasted beyond each class, as I became more aware of my muscle strength, posture, and movement.

Pilates, the springboard to your unique physical goals.

Pilates benefits the elite athlete as well as the novice exerciser.  Whether you hope to improve your golf or tennis game, increase productivity in a physically demanding career, complete a DIY project, enjoy gardening again, walk around the block, run up a mountain, carry your children or grandchildren, Pilates can help make your daily physical activities more enjoyable.

four good reasons to add Pilates into your life

1. Strengthens core muscles. Pilates trains us to identify, isolate and strengthen deep core muscles. When the core is strong, the frame of the body is supported, and risk of injury diminishes.

2. Identifies and addresses muscular imbalances. Whether it is normal daily life activities, leisure sports or competitive athletics we all tend to favor one side of our bodies while moving. This creates imbalances and movement patterns that, over time, can cause pain and limit our range of motion.

3. Increases strength and flexibility. Pilates will improve and enhance performance in any activity; cycling, running, skiing, yoga, CrossFit, tennis and golf– just to name a few!  Pilates focuses on correct muscle recruitment, which helps prevent overuse injuries and aids in rehabilitation.

4. Improves the Mind/Body connection. Joseph Pilates originally called his work "Contrology." He considered this to be a body/mind/spirit approach to movement founded on the integrative effect of the principles of centering, concentration, control, precision, breath, and flow.
