Elizabeth Shively

A former professional dancer, Elizabeth Shively, was introduced to the Pilates method in 1993 while studying ballet and modern dance at Cornish College of the Arts (Seattle, WA.). She quickly fell in love with the control and concentration of the method and credits Pilates for keeping her injury free during her performing career.

Elizabeth received her Pilates certification from the PhysicalMind Institute (New York, NY.) in 2000; and continues to expand her Pilates and movement education by attending advanced teacher trainings and workshops. In the Spring of 2015 she completed her health coach certification with the American Council on Exercise (ACE).

Elizabeth’s focus is on helping each client achieve their individual fitness goals. She enjoys watching her clients experience the “aha” moments that come from the study of the Pilates method and classical dance and movement.
