Biography

Photo of Samantha Lefort Welsh

Sam has been studying and practicing the Pilates Method since her first introduction in 2003; as a contemporary ballet dancer she originally sought out Pilates to “get taller” and while it hasn’t increased her height per-se, it’s kept her spine supple and strong, and living life with spontaneous zest and pleasure! As a dancer Sam used Pilates to prevent and recover from injuries, and she continues to practice Pilates to remain pain free and support her love of the outdoors. You can find her teaching at Embody Pilates in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, and in the summer months trying to do the Advanced Mat work on a paddle board (only somewhat successfully!) Sam is a graduate from the Advanced Teacher Training program from The Pilates Center and for her it’s a joy to witness clients feeling the deep sense of accomplishment through such a demanding method. The rigour and discipline reminds her of the systematic and intelligent progression of exercises often found in dance training. A recent transplant to Canmore, Alberta, Canada (just outside Banff National Park) Sam has taught in California, Vancouver, and at Kalijo Pilates, the only studio in Canada that offers the Classical Pilates Instruction Certification from The Pilates Center, from Boulder, Colorado.
