“Have you lost your flow in your gait, or realized you have muscle imbalances that can't be rectified with a massage or gone to a physical therapist just to be given a generic set of exercises that do not correct your problem because it is being viewed myopically? I have your answer...go and see Linnea as I have found her to have the most innate ability to observe you, and then be able to provide movements that directly align with your specific issue. Resolutions come very quickly as a result, and you will be overjoyed with Linnea, as I have been. In a word, Linnea is amazing, has the credentials you are seeking, and knows the human body inside and out.”
"While there are many great trainers, Linnea's deep knowledge of anatomy and kinesiology, detailed cueing, curiosity, and wonderful presence was just the right combination for my needs. Finding a teacher with such exceptional qualities and gifts really makes a big difference for me when working together in small groups. Besides, who’s more fun to hang out with than a former circus performer?"
"I have been practicing various forms of yoga for over 15 years, enjoying and appreciating the guidance of many good teachers. However, Linnea is the best yoga teacher I have ever had. Linnea is extremely attentive to the aspirations, needs, and limitations of her students. She thoughtfully, and with extremely clear verbal instruction, guides us to explore what yoga can bring ... breath, flowing movement, strength, flexibility. Students of every experience level are safe and gently cared for. At the same time, we are challenged to become stronger, more balanced, more open ... mindfully present. I LOVE Linnea. I LOVE her yoga class."
"When I suffered a catastrophic injury to both of my wrists and my knee, I had a lot of trouble finding anything that I could do for exercise. My injuries weren't healing normally for reasons that no one could explain. I spent years and $30,000 going to different doctors and trying different therapies with very limited success. I had to stop working and going to school. Sitting around all the time made the pain worse. It was terrible. I finally tried apparatus Pilates with Linnea and started to feel better after only a few sessions. I was so excited. Not only was I getting better, but I found something that I could do for exercise! Linnea was the perfect person to go through this process with. She was so nice and positive during a time when I felt terrible about myself and really bleak about the future. She has an incredible eye for proper alignment and would make little micro-adjustments to my posture or quality of movement that would be so helpful. She was very creative and supportive about altering different exercises so I could do them with my limited ability. And it was really fun for both of us to notice when I didn't need to alter them anymore! Our sessions are custom tailored to rebuild my body in the areas that I have chronic weakness (which probably contributed to my injury in the first place). I've worked with her now for about a year and my ambient pain (pain at rest) is gone. I can type again, go to school and work, scuba dive, etc. I'm still working toward full mobility and strength and still need to be careful with my body, but I finally feel like my life is "normal" again. I continue to make gains every month and plan to make Pilates a permanent part of my athletic life. I recommend doing Pilates with Linnea to anyone, especially folks who are dealing with chronic pain and injuries. I know how frustrating and exhausting trying to heal from chronic injury can be and Linnea is one of the most knowledgeable, helpful, and competent people that I met on my journey."
