Pilates Teacher, Owner
Curiosity, compassion, and physicality are the driving forces in Lindsey’s teaching. She has been practicing Pilates for 19 years and teaching for eight, and she began her journey with the Pilates method as a classical ballet dancer in Mount Vernon, Ohio. While studying theoretical mathematics at Ohio State University, Lindsey experienced crippling low back and neck pain. She turned to Pilates for relief, and mindful movement saved her spine. Overwhelmed with enthusiasm, she chose to make a career shift. Lindsey has made it her mission to help others understand their bodies and find joy within them.
Lindsey received her B.A. in theoretical mathematics in 2009. From there, she completed the Advanced Teacher Training program at the Pilates Center of Boulder, Colorado, which is widely considered the most comprehensive program offered in the world. Lindsey has attended workshops on low back pain, pre and post-natal Pilates, Core-Align, group teaching techniques, and more. She has also given workshops on intermediate to advanced progression. For three years, Lindsey worked side-by-side with some of the most respected physical therapists on the Front Range. She has taught people with sciatica, scoliosis, knee, hip and shoulder replacements, neurological disorders, stenosis, disc problems, Parkinson’s, and more. She has also helped professional athletes, dancers, golfers, physical laborers, movement enthusiasts, bikers, runners, and skiers hone their craft through strength, agility, and body awareness. Lindsey’s clients have ranged in age from 13 to 88. She is so grateful to have her practice in her favorite neighborhood in Denver!
Originally from Santa Cruz, California, Greer was introduced to Pilates at the age of 17 when she moved to Boulder, Colorado. As fate would have it, she took her very first class at the Pilates Center of Boulder. Her passion was sparked immediately, and after a few years, she returned to Boulder to enter into the Pilates Center of Boulder’s Advanced Teacher Training Program. In January of 2012, she completed the 1000 hour internship and began her journey as a teacher.
Her passion for the study of healthy movement was sparked young — as a small child, Greer spent many of her days at her parents’ Martial Arts Center in Cupertino, California. She has a deep love and respect for the environment of support and nurturing that the Pilates community provides for all who are interested in health and fitness. Whether your practice is about maintaining balance to more effectively pursue your own physical passions, or you are redefining yourself as a healthy and physically sound person after illness, injury, or a sedentary lifestyle, Greer understands intimately how Pilates can restore health of the body, mind, and spirit and “return you to life.” She is grateful to be able to share her love of the method with others. When not teaching and exploring her own Pilates practice, Greer can be found hiking, practicing yoga, and appreciating all forms of creative expression she can find.
