Why we teach…

Lisa Marie “I absolutely love movement and love the challenge of providing feedback to help my clients create graceful, pain-free, and fun movement. Sharing the love of Pilates and efficient movement to others makes me wake up every day with a purpose! As a little girl, I loved to dance, move, run and dreamed I would be a coach someday. I fell into the path of Pilates winning a gift certificate for a private Pilates session, after one session I fell in love with Pilates. Pilates got me out of pain, I learned how to move with grace and still work on it every day. Each day I feel like a detective and absolutely love finding imbalances to create balance.”
Gwen “I love to teach because it makes me really happy knowing I’m making a difference in people’s lives. Whether it be through the physical part of a class or just sharing a laugh, I love knowing I’m helping people through fitness. Funny enough, I accidentally fell into hammock yoga. I had done aerial silks before and wanted to bring something like that to McCall. When a friend suggested getting certified in hammock yoga, I jumped at it knowing no one else in McCall or Idaho was teaching this specific style.”
Deb “I love teaching Pilates because I have always appreciated the power of personal connection. Intentionally engaging the physical body in any form of exercise can be beneficial but Pilates is very mindful and deliberate and I enjoy helping people discover more about themselves through movement. Clients will encounter ranges of movement they didn’t know they could achieve while also learning how to move through their limitations with more ease. Additionally, focus on breath is something I have come to appreciate as a true means to help heal the body on many levels. I have several clients who report they use breath work to help them in daily life and to help them with sleep difficulty. The joy of hearing someone say, “the cues you gave me yesterday about using my shoulder really helped my understanding” is very rewarding. I have found the Pilates method to be a system that helps one gain body awareness and deep core strength, which flows into daily life.”
Susu “Teaching for me is a very personal interactive experience, whether it is working with a private client or class. Assisting others to gain self-confidence in themselves and further knowledge of the beautiful mechanics of the body, is very exciting and rewarding! To see a client become stronger, and want “more” is one of the most win-win experiences I have ever known. I am grateful for the opportunity to teach. I have always been fascinated by the many facets and systems of the human body. To me, the human body, and the body of every being on the planet is “sacred biology(TM)”. As I moved deeper into my Pilates practice, I realized I was connecting with an unexplored part of myself, new territory for me. I became intrigued with this Pilates journey! I am in my sixties. How wonderful to have new horizons!! Teaching was the next logical step, as I wish to share my joy of mind, body, spirit connection with others. My teaching philosophy is: first, do no harm, second, let’s become stronger and more joyful together.”
Jean “I am passionate about inspiring others to find ways to optimize their health – and life!  Pilates has been amazing for me, and is a huge part of my life. I love sharing this practice with others because I see how effective Pilates is at transforming people in mind, body and spirit.”
