Scientifically-trained with degrees in Chemistry and Geology, Cynthia had a career in Environmental Consulting in Atlanta GA prior to discovering the wonders of pilates. Always athletic, by her mid 50’s she had developed several musculoskeletal imbalances especially from years of competitive fencing in the SE and long bicycle tours in the USA and Canada. Severe hip pain led her to physical therapy, and ultimately to pilates. Feeling the immediate changes in her body (just performing footwork!) convinced Cynthia to seek a training program at age 58. In 2018 Cynthia graduated from The Pilates Center (TPC) Intermediate Pilates Teacher Training Program in Boulder CO and Host Studio CORE in Atlanta GA. Cynthia and her husband Phil moved to beautiful Sequim WA on the Olympic Peninsula in July 2018 and have not looked back! She is very grateful to be able to teach in a fully-equipped classical pilates studio here in Sequim WA at Perfect Balance.
Cynthia loves sharing the unique benefits of classical pilates and seeing the positive changes happen when people commit to this extraordinary movement system. She feels that when anyone is more comfortable in their body they can freely pursue their gifts and talents and share them with the world.
Cynthia enjoys hiking, kayaking, singing in her church choir and the Port Angeles Symphony Chorus, swimming in lakes and oceans, traveling, birdwatching, and studying therapeutic movement in the body.
