Certified STOTT PILATES® Instructor
Beth sought out Pilates in order to work her body like an athlete without the impact and soreness in joints she would feel after typical weight training. After years of playing sports and feeling the effects, Pilates gave her an outlet to feel strong and flexible while building awareness of her posture and breathing.
Beth loves teaching Pilates because clients reap those same benefits; They gain strength and confidence in their bodies and learn the proper alignment of their spines, which many times help them improve the way they move throughout the day.
Her favorite snack is pretzels or grapes and she enjoys riding her bike, playing the piano or listening to music in her free time.
In her early twenties, health issues that weakened her body led her to yoga and she became an instructor in 2015. As her strength returned, Katie wanted to challenge herself and build muscle but found that after a couple of weeks of high impact training she was overly sore or injured and mentally burned out. One day, her boyfriend showed her a couple of videos where professional athletes were using Pilates in their weekly trainings. He explained that many athletes do Pilates because it is a low impact form of exercise and good for injury prevention and strength development. This intrigued her and she decided to learn more. She reached out to Pilates Center of Omaha then signed up for a STOTT Reformer training. What happened next she describes as “falling in love and finding my passion” all at once. In Pilates, Katie has found an amazing combination of toning, strengthening, stretching, and gentle exercise that is both engaging and FUN.
With a background as a horseback riding instructor, yoga teacher, and health coach, her desire is to create an experience during her lessons, where her client can feel calm, supported, present, and thoroughly worked out. One of her favorite things about being a Pilates instructor is helping her clients discover their own bodies in a new way (especially their CORE!) and celebrate with them as they reach their health and fitness goals.
