elizebeth ellison, stott pialtes instructor trainer, fami new york, pilates educationI don’t know if you are aware of this or not, but our very dear instructor Elizebeth Ellison is a total geek.
This week she will spend four days in New York City participating in a human dissection workshop.

This workshop will be held at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. It is designed to school pilates pros on the anatomical and clinical knowledge needed to safely and effectively train clients.

Can you believe it?!!

Elizebeth’s dedication to her craft is unparalleled. She is a sponge when it comes to learning new and different ways to approach human movement, fitness training, and pilates. Earlier this year she spent a weekend in Minnesota learning about Functional Movement Screens. And in another month she will be attending the nation’s leading fitness conference out in Los Angeles. In May Elizebeth spent 24 hours of her “spare time” with her mentor to better understand how to teach individuals with orthopedic needs and chronic illnesses.

While I’m tooting her horn for her (because she would never do this herself), did you know that she received an award for being the outstanding STOTT PILATES Instructor Trainer — WORLD WIDE ?? And that she is the only person in the state of Georgia who is qualified to teach the STOTT PILATES Injury and Special Populations curriculum to Pilates instructors?

Elizebeth’s participation in all of these activities directly impacts the quality of the lessons she teaches here at the center. If you are one of her regular clients you know exactly what I’m talking about. If you haven’t had the pleasure of taking a lesson with her yet, she is at the studio on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings. Her current passion is teaching TRX Suspension Training, and there are openings at 11:00 in her semi-private lessons on those days.

So if you see Elizebeth this week, please wish her happy travels. And when you see her after the anatomy workshop, ask her what she learned. She’ll be very excited to share it with you.

In Good Health,

Mary Jo
