Karen Swift Bodycontrol Certified Insutructor

Offering Pilates on the Equipment for individuals and small groups

My home studio is based on Mercer Island in Seattle. I have 4 reformers and 2 split level Wunda chairs and can teach groups of up to 6 on the equipment.

If there are more than 4 people in a class the group rotates each week to experience the different equipment. We can target the same muscles groups on both pieces of the equipment, this is a great way to add a challenge but also provide a different perspective to each exercise.

It will be more beneficial and enjoyable to everyone if individuals in each group are at a similar level of experience with similar objectives. This way I can ensure everyone moves at a pace suitable for them and everyone can progress together.

At your request we can incorporate Barre into the class to further challenge posture and balance.

If you would like to join an existing group let me know and I will do my best to find a group that suits you.

To book your session please email or call me.
