Christine is the co-owner of Bria. You can find her at Bria most days doing whatever needs to be done to have the best studio in Seattle. She is the Jill of all trades! On her spare time she loves to spend time with her family, travel and take on any myriad of DIY home projects.
Caitlin is passionate about keeping Pilates fun and fresh for every body, and is dedicated to ensuring her clients' growth in their individual practice by constantly introducing new, transformative programming in both classes and private sessions. Her wise and assistive touch, sensitive and practical individualized instruction, and detailed attention to alignment and deep core engagement enables her to carefully, efficiently, and effectively inspire her diverse clientele to not only see and feel drastic physical changes in their bodies as they continue to achieve their fitness and rehabilitative goals, but also to integrate the mindful self-awareness and strength they develop in class into their daily lives.
She discovered Pilates in 2011, after many years of practicing yoga and then teaching yoga since 2007. Appreciating the complementary nature of both disciplines, she trained and became certified in 2013 at Vitality Pilates in Seattle.
Ellen is constantly searching for more ways to move efficiently, creatively and therapeutically. Helping students attain body awareness, optimal mobility and alignment, regardless of limitations or age, is constantly gratifying.
Always in her mind is this advice from yoga master Angela Farmer: “Think of your body like a house, and live in every room.”
When not in a studio, Ellen enjoys hiking, dancing, pickle ball and creating nutritious meals.
