Diane Altman Dautoff
I was introduced to pilates moe than 20 years ago and after multiple running-relates injuries, returned to pilates fifteen years ago as a committed student. Nine years ago I began my instructor training at BodyCenter in Seattle. I began teaching Mat pilates classes at various YMCAs 8 years ago. I completed reformer training in 2014 and on the remaining apparatus in 2015. In addition to teaching Pilates, I am also a retired consultant and work occasionally facilitate strategic planning and leadership development projects.
I believe pilates is a great way for people of all ages to build and maintain core strengthen and stability. I am a patient and thoughtful instructor and enjoy working with beginners as well as people who have developed an ongoing pilates practice. My clients describe me as attentive and caring. They appreciate my attention to form and my ability to encourage and motivate them. I teach both group and private sessions.
