This class is taught by:

Beth Cutsor

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.

Bilateral hip replacement surgery put an end to her love of running. Nancy totally attributes her Pilates practice to her full and quick recovery. Today, she enjoys cycling, Barre, Pilates, spending time with family, friends, cooking and reading.
