Shannon Brodlieb (Crossman)

I founded my own business in October of 2013, after realizing my vision was to create a beautiful, calm, and serene studio, where people enjoyed coming to. My singular focus is to give back to the community the Method of Pilates as it was intended so long ago. My ultimate passion is in teaching, and I know you will find out first-hand that my number one priority will always be YOU, and meeting each and every individual need!

My journey towards Pilates started at a young age. I grew up as a classically trained ballerina who studied with prestigious schools such as Houston Ballet Academy, School of American Ballet, the Chautauqua Institute, and the world renowned Juilliard School. Pilates was the best form of body conditioning for a dancer to use, as it provided them with a wide range of tools to help them become more aware of their alignment and protect them against injury.

I started studying Pilates as a dancer, and knew the moment I performed “footwork” on the Reformer, I was destined to become an instructor. The way it made my body feel was unlike anything I had ever discovered. I initially started my training in St. Petersburg, Florida with fellow classical instructor Linda McNamar, who then referred me to New York City to continue my training. It was there, in 2002, that I finished the rigorous 600+ hour certification to become a 2nd Generation Pilates Instructor under the eye of Romana Kryzanowska, Joseph Pilates’s protégé. Through Romana’s passion for life and endless dedication to the work, I was able to see what an immeasurable gift to the world Pilates was.

I married my husband in February of 2016, and we welcomed our beautiful daughter Eleanor “Ellie” in September of 2018. When I’m not in the studio teaching, you can find me working on my cooking skills, enjoying time with my family, and being a Mommy!
