The Studio
Owner/Instructor - Dana Wall

During a business meeting in 2003, I met a Pilates instructor and took her up on an offer to try a private class, WOW!  I loved the movement, I had finally found an exercise program I could enjoy. My body started getting stronger, my posture and balance was improved and I was no longer concerned about falling and injuring myself.  

After almost a decade of being a consistent Pilates student, I had the opportunity to enroll in a Polestar Pilates certification course that was developed and taught by physical therapists. 

When I completed the course, I knew that I had to own a Pilates Studio. Fortunately, Kendall Yards was just developing the business district and I was able to secure a great space in this beautiful Urban Community.

I truly love "Core Pilates and Wellness". It's a place where everyone is accepted and appreciated. My students are amazing! They range from 16 to 86 years young! I get to be part of helping people change their bodies and minds! The rewards are tremendous.

Bio coming soon

Instructor - Emily Shriner

I am originally from the West Coast. I am classically trained and obtained my certification at Shepord Method Pialtes in west Los Angeles in 2018 and have been teaching across LA since and now here in the PNW. I first fell in love with the sport as a teenager when I started the practice consistently for my profession as a model, per request from my agency as they wanted me to have a lean toned appearance and particularly a trimmed waist. I had always been active and Pilates was the one thing that worked and actually felt good from inside out like nothing else. Then during my training I really started to understand the profound changes in my body and how much not just I, but everyone needs this kind of work. Growing a real connection with my body and gaining the tools to better my every day life and become better at my performance outside of the studio is why I see the value in teaching others. To help others achieve a similar kind of experience  drives my passion as an instructor.
