Meet Our Team
Stephanie Vanderbeck, owner
Hi, I’m Stephanie, owner, operator, and lead teacher at Purely Pilates. I have taught pilates professionally since 2003. My credentials include a BS Exercise Science, ACSM-CPT, PMA-CPT, ELDOA practitioner levels 1-3, and Physicalmind teacher trainer. However I consider my students to be my real teachers. I can’t think of anything more rewarding than helping people discover how to feel more at home in their own bodies, and confident in the way they look and move.
The focus of my practice is therapeutic pilates for spinal conditions. I am a former gymnast with several spinal fractures and disc injuries, so I can relate to chronic pain. Pilates is a crucial part of keeping my own body healthy and pain-free. A typical session with me will include pilates for overall strength and awareness, and the ELDOA Method to address specific spinal segments that may be compressed or damaged. Learn more about ELDOA here.
My guiding principle is that exercise really does not have to be extreme to work magnificently. I want to help my clients shift from a “more is better” mindset to a “less is more” mindset. You have ONE BODY, and it will be your home until the end. Do pilates to take better care of it.
I am unable to teach introductory private sessions at this time. For more on my methods, please check out my 12-Week "Break Free From Back Pain" course.
