Integrative Pilates
When we understand our body's functional design and attune to its native intelligence instead of overriding it, as we are so often conditioned to do, we open new pathways to growth and healing.

SESSIONS:     One hour private sessions designed to meet

                        your specific needs and longterm goals. 


LOCATION:    My studio 

                        Your home 

                        Online          (Includes complimentary online meeting to set up 

                                                         your device / workout area prior to initial session)                   



                        Review of your comprehensive health history.

                        Discussion of any areas of focus or concern.

                        If needed, and with your consent, consultation with            

                        your physician or physical therapist.


EQUIPMENT: All sessions include matwork with and without props,

                        which recreate the challenges and benefits of the                                         Pilates machines. My studio is equipped with the                                           Reformer, Cadillac, mats, and a wide array of props.    

                        For home or Skype sessions, if you would like to                                           purchase props and/or machines, I will guide you in

                        finding the best fit for you and your space.

“ Suzan is a maestro of the body.  She is a careful, traditionally trained yet innovative Pilates instructor possessed of so much skill and knowledge that she seems to see every nuance and know a way to work with it or around it.  Highly trained and personally accomplished, I feel like my Skype hour with her
