My Road To Your Pilates Lifestyle

by Susan Siebenthaler

pointerIn the early ’90s my career as a Legal Assistant was well established when I began hearing and reading about the Pilates Method.

My clients receive Classical Pilates training for maximum fitness benefits
It wasn’t long before Pilates studios and classes made their way to the Sunshine State. I began taking group classes and absolutely loved the results!

Wanting more, I expanded my practice to include private equipment sessions that complimented my group class workouts, but I wasn’t finished.

Train, Study, Repeat

Loving the way I felt mentally and physically after my sessions and searching for a healthier lifestyle than what working in a law office offered, I began the journey towards earning my own teacher certification.

After extensive research comparing several national programs, I chose New York’s Power Pilates course work for my certification, fulfilling the requirements by commuting to their South Florida training center in Boca Raton where I learned the Classical method from Pilates of Boca studio owner and Pilates teacher Stefanie Ellis.

A Studio I Can Call My Own!

The Power Pilates comprehensive program includes extensive in-studio time, practical and written exams, and a 600-hour apprenticeship requirement at an approved studio, which for me was the former Pilates Premier Studio in St. Petersburg.

I apprenticed there under the watchful eye of Tess Whelan, who holds Classical certifications from both Romana Krysanowska and Power Pilates.

After two-and-a-half years teaching at Pilates Premier, I opened Your Pilates Lifestyle, LLC, in October, 2010.

After opening my studio I continued my training with a new certification from Classical Pilates Education, further elevating my skills and capabilities as a dual-certified Pilates instructor.

I’m constantly researching ways to increase my knowledge and understanding of Pilates, making sure my clients receive the best training possible in a comfortable, welcoming environment.

I love what I do and the people I meet! Pilates has truly changed my life!
