I am a fully certified STOTT Pilates™/® instructor, with an added emphasis on rehabilitative Pilates. Pilates is a movement system featuring controlled movements designed to promote core strength. There are many different styles of Pilates, just like yoga. Some styles are more fitness based (the kind you see on infomercials), and some are able to be used to rehabilitate injuries.
STOTT Pilates™/® can be broken down to the tiniest piece of movement for rehab like centering your hip in its socket or amped all the way up to challenging an elite athlete. I am very fortunate to teach at Pacific Northwest Pilates, the Pacific Northwest’s premier STOTT Pilates™/® studio. Our instructors keep abreast of the latest findings and trends, the result being a highly creative, supportive and innovative atmosphere.
Group Pilates Classes
I teach weekly pilates classes for both mat and reformer on Wednesdays and Fridays at noon, and a gentle class on Thursdays at 2:00. Click here for more information on weekly classes.
Private Pilates Sessions
As someone who works with my own pilates instructor on a weekly basis, I can state truthfully: there is nothing else quite like a one-on-one session. The ability to work on your own particular needs under the watchful eye of a trained instructor is truly invaluable. I teach 17 private sessions each week, and have training in all of the pilates equipment. Click here for more information on private sessions.
feedback from clients . . .
"I have had such success with my aches and pains and it's all due to the Pilates that I have been doing for the past 3 years. I came to Sue unable to reach over my head and with constant neck and should pains. I also could not carry heavy items because my muscles were not that strong. Little by little I have been healing and today I am stronger and can even do some advanced techniques which I thought I'd never be able to do.
Just being out of pain has been such a success for me. No pain meds were ever necessary. Sue has been so instrumental in all this. She is very cautious, observant, and extremely patient. Without a good teacher my recovery would not have been so successful. I hope that more people can find and time and means to be able to achieve what I have achieved!" --Marlina P.
