Sam has been studying and practicing the Pilates Method since her first introduction in 2003. As a contemporary dancer Sam used Pilates to prevent and recover from injuries; and continues to practice Pilates to remain pain free and support her love of the outdoors.
Sam is a graduate from the Advanced Teacher Training program from The Pilates Center with over 2000 hours of practice and training. She has studied various styles and disciplines of Pilates but truly found her power and inspiration in the Classical Method; it’s a joy to witness the feelings of accomplishment through such a demanding method! The rigour and discipline of Pilates reminds her of the systematic and intelligent progression of exercises often found in dance training, and she recognizes the immense potential of using this method for cross-training for many sports and recreation activities.
With her extensive performing arts background Sam loves to bring elements of dance and body conditioning to her classes, she enjoys offering complimentary movement elements to her clients.
A recent transplant to Canmore, Sam moved from California in December 2018. She has taught in California, Vancouver, the Sunshine Coast and more! Sam originally sought out Pilates to “get taller”, and while it hasn’t increased her height it’s kept her spine strong, her posture upright, and remain pain free through all of her outdoor hobbies and activities.
