Welcome Ellyn!

Please join us in welcoming our new instructor, Ellyn Sjoquist!

Ellyn Sjoquist made her way into the Pilates world when juggling dance jobs and desk jobs triggered intractable back and hip pain. She was totally astounded by how Pilates improved her day-to-day quality of life, and went on to earn her mat and equipment certifications from the Kane School of Core Integration at Kinected Center in New York City.

As a practitioner, Ellyn has worked with self-identifying movers and non-movers of all ages. Ellyn hopes to foster in her clients a deeper, more physicalized understanding of their own bodies as complex, malleable instruments. To build relationships as collaborative explorers and motivated body detectives. To help her clients to articulate their goals and then exceed them. To approach each client holistically, with deep compassion and sound knowledge. Ellyn truly believes bodies are amazing, and movement is healing.
