Such a great class with Sioned the other day! It’s been ages since I’ve taken Pilates and Sioned help guide me through it with ease, noticing even the tiniest of movements and correcting alignment through the computer screen. Thank goodness for technology! Highly recommend!
As a professional tap dancer, Sioned is no stranger to injuries. She struggled for years while dancing with multiple companies in Chicago to keep her body working at the level she needed. Searching for a solution, Sioned turned to Pilates. The meticulous way Pilates instructors viewed the body was unlike anything she had ever experienced outside of the dance world. Inspired to help others, Sioned quickly gained her Full Certification through STOTT Pilates.
While Pilates is an amazing tool for injury recovery and strength training, Sioned found that some of her clients needed more. Looking for additional pathways, she enrolled in New School for Massage in Chicago, IL. It was there that she found the missing link in her training. Sioned designed a way to uniquely combine Pilates and Massage into a cohesive focus. She discovered that pain and injuries can be tackled from the perspectives of both strength and release. It was this discovery that inspired her to create Body First with her husband, Alex.
