On a scale of 1-5, I give Sun Pilates at least 1000. I've been a regular for 8 years? More? Owner Dawn King is just the best. She leads by example and sets the barre high (see what I did there?) for professionalism, expertise, adaptation to individual needs and authentic care. She and instructors like Janine, Kelly and Janet never fail to deliver - always with great skill, often with humor and sometimes with outright hilarity. Classes are fun and effective. Oh. And. Did I say Sun P is adaptable? Above and beyond. OMG. Today I attended my first ONLINE “simulated reformer” class. It was awesome. Take that, COVID-19. We're in this together and... we got this!
She received her Pilates certification at Pilates in the Pines in August 2005, and is very classically trained (3rd generation from Joseph Pilates himself). While teaching there, she was exposed to GYROTONIC, was hooked, and received that certification in May 2006. She takes pride in the integrity of her methods and continues to learn something new everyday. An amazing instructor once told her that a teacher is only as good as their students. She couldn’t agree more. They motivate and inspire her – for that she is eternally grateful. Healing people or increasing their mobility is a great gift.
She has two sons, 19 and 22, and most of her family is here in Colorado Springs. She is very passionate about cooking and outdoor activities. This California transplant LOVES Colorado.
She currently teaches at Spectrum Rehabilitation, here in the Springs, and is grateful to have the opportunity to be a part of the team at Sun Pilates. A teacher should never stop learning, or surrounding themselves with good people.
IF YOU REST, YOU RUST.
