Ruth Dreier was first introduced to the Pilates reformer 24 years ago when a friend recommended it to her for relieving the stresses she had from running long distance on a daily basis. Learning to use the Pilates Reformer changed her fitness level and her life dramatically! From that moment onward she made Pilates a daily practice and an ongoing interest. 15 years after her introduction to the reformer she utilized Pilates exercises to heal herself from a chronic pain condition she had developed in her shoulder. After experiencing how Pilates could induce miraculous relief from pain she decided to dedicate herself to studying Pilates more seriously and to making the life-change to become a Certified Pilates Instructor and share the practices with others.
Ruth Dreier is a NCPT (Nationally Certified Pilates Teacher) through the Nationally Accredited NPCP (Nationally Pilates Certification Program Association) formerly known as the nationally accredited PMA (PIlates Method Alliance). She also received her Comprehensive Pilates Instructor Certification from The Balanced Body Instructor Training Program. This certification includes the Pilates Mat, Reformer, Ladder Barrel, Wunda Chair, and the Pilates Trapeze Table Certifications. She has a special interest in the influence of ballet on Pilates exercises and has studied ballet barre for the last 6 years. She has also taken the Polestar Pilates School Reformer Course and studied with well known teachers such as Patricia Martinez, Kate Weller and Darien Gold.
Her great love is to see people use the Pilates exercises to transform their health and experience their body on a new level of dynamic fitness.
