Precision Breathe Center Focus Balance
I have been teaching a Somatic (body-mind) approach to Pilates for 20 years. I approach each Pilates session according to what your body needs on that particular day. The goal of each session is to create balance and ease,-resulting in less stress and longer, stronger muscles. Pilates is for every body!
Because of the corona virus pandemic I am offering live Pilates classes online. I am also offering Somatic relaxation and self massage live online classes. Please contact me for more information. Here is a link to a free basic fundamentals "safe at home" 24 minute pilates warm up. It is not vigorous because I need to be able to watch you move for it to be a safe work out!
You matter to me!
My comprehensive training in Pilates is in the B.A.S.I Pilates method, -which makes for a body-mind approach. My background in "Structural Integration", (a Somatic approach to Rolfing), gives me a keen eye for alignment and stress patterns. I have interned and worked in a Classical Pilates studio, which makes for a more vigorous athletic workout. In addition, I have worked in two Pole-Star Pilates Physical Therapy business' and so I have a vast knowledge of injury care and prevention. I have education and experience working with seniors, athletes and pregnancy. I am a Master teacher trainer in Poolates, (Pilates in warm water), if you want to take your Pilates to the Pool! Check out the services page for more information about Poolates.
“Michele put me immediately at ease with her confidence, knowledge and sensitive communication style. She understood my needs and developed an in-home program that was comfortable, challenging and easily adaptable to my environment and schedule.” Susan Sully, Santa Barbara
"Michele Morrow has been my personal Pilates trainer for 14 years.
I am in my 70's and she has helped me greatly in the areas of
posture, flexibility and muscle control.
Her professional approach and knowledge of kinesiology are
very helpful in keeping her clients on the path to an active life.
In addition she will now be assisting me with gym workouts to
achieve maximum effectiveness.
She has earned and deserves my highest recommendation.

I am 89 years 'young' and I have been seeing Michele for Pilates and Poolates for 15 years. My balance and strength has been maintained, which I attribute to my dedication. I compare Michele's teaching style to her being a 'gentle whip!', - as she is fair but strict in achieving our goals for me in the work outs. I highly recommend her.

I have had the pleasure of taking Pilates with Michele for 17 years. Originally I came to her with chronic low back pain from 50 years of playing tennis. Now I am pain free in top shape at 87 years old. I appreciate Michele's expertise and consistent concern for my over all health and my work out goals.
