Stephanie Crank – Owner
Certified STOTT PILATES® Lead Instructor-Trainer
A professional ballet dancer for more than 12 years with several companies including Oregon Ballet Theatre, Cincinnati Ballet and the Joffrey Ballet of Chicago, Stephanie was introduced to STOTT PILATES® during her rehabilitation from a difficult back injury. Pilates not only helped her to strengthen and restructure the faulty muscular patterns that led to her injury, but also increased her strength and confidence as a performer.
After retiring from dance, teaching pilates seemed the perfect career transition. Impressed with the level of research and thought behind the STOTT PILATES® method, Stephanie sought instructor training and very quickly developed an even deeper respect for the method and the organization behind it. She has been teaching STOTT PILATES® since 2004 and became a STOTT PILATES® Instructor Trainer in September of 2008.
Stephanie believes that the greatest gift of a regular pilates practice is improved posture, function and comfort in one’s own body. Her focus is helping people to feel healthy and energetic and assisting them in achieving their goals, whether athletic in nature or simple daily tasks made easier and more joyful.
