Premier Pilates is a fully equipped Pilates studio in South Lake Union offering top quality training for both rehabilitation and conditioning.

[04/24/17]   As many of you know, I have recently decided to close down my business at the end of May. I’m still fine, and my business was doing well, but I just made up my mind that I wanted to move my career in another direction. The last 4 ½ years have gone by so quickly, with the usual struggles mixed with the unique joys of creating and running a small business. But a new opportunity arose, and I reasoned that it was my smartest decision to move on. I will miss the things I enjoyed, mostly the people, but good memories will follow me for a lifetime. Thanks to all of you for being a cherished part of my life.


Public Indifference Is Trump's Asset on the Path to Autocracy

I am not supposed to talk politics on my business page, but the need to speak out is overwhelming. Coming to America from an authoritarian country, I feel deeply concerned about the situation we are presently in. I feel that this is the time to WAKE UP and stand up for the great values of democracy. Please watch this video and share it with your friends.

This is a clear moment of crisis for Americans, says Atlantic senior editor David Frum. “We are living through the most dangerous challenge to the free gover...

Monday Inspiration

Look on the bright side (there still is one of course). If Monday is sunny, spring can’t be far behind. And if you have someone to make tomorrow special, consider yourself well off. Happy V-day.

Life is full of contrasts. Two days ago I was swimming in a tropical ocean and now i am finding myself and Pierre walking in a snowy Wonderland. Am not sure about myself, but he certainly enjoys it.

Thomas Jefferson always expressed the concern that the citizenry must be educated for Democracy to survive. While we know there were many contributing factors to Trump's victory, the ignorance of his followers was appolling. Jefferson would be saying "I told you so".

Begin the new year with peace and tranquility -- a walk in a park in the mist of morning, a pleasant drive by winter fields resting for spring, or buried deep in a reading chair by the fire in a cabin in the snowy stillness of the forest.
Happy New Year to all of you! May everything go right this year.

We’re lucky our pets don’t care being personified – and we humans eat it up, turning our dogs, in particular, into little miniature children. But cute is cute, however you get there. And by the way, Pierre says Merry Christmas to all of you – really, I heard him say it! And Merry Christmas from me to all my dearest students.

In case you are hesitant...

Thanksgiving is fast approaching and I want to thank all of you for being such great loyal clients. Some of you have been coming to Premier Pilates for a long time – and for that I am grateful. Some of you just started and I hope you will stick around for a while and find that Premier Pilates is not just a regular studio. We have much more to offer in addition to Pilates workouts – friendship, laughter, the same values and the same concerns for the future of our country. I am grateful I have you, my dear clients and friends, and I hope we will continue working together sculpting our bodies and shaping our minds.

With love,


Shock is hardly strong enough. For those who saw Donald Trump as a reprehensible excuse for a human being, it is staggeringly discomfiting to see him elected. But like in any election, we can gather from the results what must be true in America, a truth we hardly imagined was there, but was, and with such ferocity.

And the truth will hurt:

1. The character of our leaders means nothing, and has no bearing on the success of our country.

2. The intelligence, experience, and knowledge of our leaders means nothing, and has no bearing on the success of our country.

3. Bullies are trusted and supported more than civil people.

4. Americans think the world is an easy place to manage if only we throw our weight around, act tough, and stand ready to defeat all enemies real or imagined. Foreign policy is reduced to a video game in the American mind.

5. Americans say they want money out of politics, yet elect the very people who will ensure it remains the essence of political power.

6. Americans are easy marks for lies, misinformation, and rumor, and have no idea they are the victim of a massive and unprincipled right wing propaganda machine.

I am saddened and embarrassed too.
