Marlys Yvonne

Marlys is a fully certified Equipment and Mat Pilates instructor, receiving her training from Balanced Body in San Francisco, CA and Vitality Pilates in Seattle, WA. She danced professionally for 5 years in a ballet company before exploring more contemporary movement; finding her place here in Seattle and now continues to perform across a wide rang of mediums. Her experience in dance as well as her knowledge of the Pilates system allows her to tailor specialized cross-training regiments that challenge and bring balance to the body. Marlys is excited to bring her skills to TRIBE and will be offering group classes as well as private sessions to clients of all ages, levels, and ability.

Shana Davis

Methods: Power Reformer, Yoga
 
Shana’s background in yoga provides the foundation for her mind body approach to training, nutrition, stress reduction and overall wellbeing. A lifelong student of hatha yoga, Shana became certified to teach vinyasa flow in 2006. Realizing the importance of cross training in a variety of activities in order to achieve a balanced, well-conditioned body and a vibrant, stimulated mind, Shana began practicing a discipline of exercise that combined the fluidity of traditional Pilates with high intensity aerobic conditioning. She found this combination so effective and fun that she completed her SPX training in 2011 and began to teach Sebastian Lagree’s method of total body fitness. Shana’s philosophy is simple: “We’re designed to move and sweat, eat nutritionally dense food, drink water, rest, reflect, and repeat. Sometimes we lose sight of this, I’m here to help folks remember.”

James Dorfer

Methods: Reformer Pilates, Reformer: Tone and Stretch, Power Reformer, Jump Board, Mat Pilates
 
James was a professional dancer and musician and so much more. All of his life experience comes forward in his classes. His reformer classes tend to be thoughtful and fun, but he always tailors the class to his clients' fitness goals. He wants you to learn concepts of moving and posture while having fun and feeling it the next couple days, or 6! Nicknames he's had: Joe jr, Wizard, Nerd, Sargent, and at Tribe he might be known as the Dictator. He has many movement backgrounds and anatomical knowledge sources that will enhance your practice of Pilates and hopefully your daily life. Just come in, get ready to work it out and have fun! =)

Susan Foley

Susan holds a B.A. in Theater Arts from the University of California at Santa Cruz and is also trained in Ballroom Dance and instruction. She originally came to Pilates through Lisa Graham, founder and owner of Agile Monkey Pilates in Santa Cruz, California. Pilates taught Susan how to understand and work with many of her postural deviations, with which she constantly struggled as a performer. She studied for several years with Jeannette Palmer who inspired and encouraged her to pursue teaching. Susan received her training and certification from Pilates Academy International in New York City. She taught as a senior instructor at Pilates on Fifth and as a recurring substitute instructor at Mark Morris Dance Center. She welcomes students of all fitness levels and incorporates modifications appropriate for each individual to ensure that the everyone is working optimally and safely for their own body, skill level, and background.
This classic Pilates Reformer class focuses on the body as a whole, to increase flexibility, strength, balance, agility, create a stronger core, improved mental well-being and a fuller range of motion. All while turning the abdominal muscles, lower back and hips into your body’s powerhouse.

Because Reformer Pilates is a non-impact, balanced technique, it’s great for just about anyone—from the super-fit, to beginners to those coming back from an injury. Space is limited to 10 TRIBE members per class. Grip socks required (available for purchase).
