OUR STAFF

Samantha Walley, Owner

Samantha has been teaching movement and exercise for the past 45 years. As a young dancer, Samantha began her career as a teacher bringing ballet to developmentally challenged children. This experience drove her into academia as she followed her family's footsteps into medicine to better understand her students. Samantha found early on in this pursuit that no amount of education could replace the physical and person-to-person encounter.

Samantha's early academic pursuits did result in her finishing both graduate and undergraduate studies in the sciences which led to a 20 year career in aerospace entineering. This combination of professional experience and continuing to teach exercise and movement in the health and gym environments eventually led her to Pialtes. Samantha completed her initial training with Polestar in 1999 and went on to complete training with The Pilates Center of Boulder, Colorado, a school that was established by Romana Kryzanowska and the Taylor sisters in 2002.

Samantha was licensed as a Teacher Trainer by The Pilates Center for 7 years before she developed her own Teacher Training program. She has been a student of Jay Grimes and Sandy Shimoda since 2010. She completed Vintage Pilates' masters programs "The Work�" in 2011 and "Teaching The Work" in 2014. Samantha continues her training weekly at Vintage Pilates.

Samantha's combined experience as a Pilates teacher, a teacher of Pilates teachers, her practice as Pilates student as well as her 20 year tenure in aerospace engineering gives her a unique view to how things fit and work as well as the power and beauty of the human form in movement. This experience base gives her a wide perspective in her approach to exercise and viewing the needs of a body before her.
