A Bit About Me...

I welcome curious movers of any fitness level, physical ability, age, body type, gender identity, presentation or sexuality and I strive to create an atmosphere for ALL bodies to explore a movement practice free of judgement.

Hey, I'm Stacy (she/her)

I'm the owner/instructor behind Seed Pilates, pictured here with my 11 lb Chiweenie name Ollie, who on occasion, serves as my assistant at the studio.

Who am I? Well, I began dancing at a young age and formed a strong love for movement. I attended Western Michigan University and graduated, with honors, earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts and was named the Department of Dance Presidential Scholar. While at WMU, I began to study Conditioning, Kinesiology and movement analysis, which deepened my fascination with movement. 

Stacy is positioned on an exercise mat on her hands and knees; she is smiling, looking over her shoulder at her small dog, Ollie, who is standing on her back, wagging his tail and licking her cheek.

Upon moving to Seattle to pursue a professional dance career, I furthered my interest of physical movement by earning certifications from the American Council on Exercise and STOTT PILATES®.​ Since receiving my initial training in 2005-2006, I've had the privilege to teach at Bodycenter Studios-a STOTT PILATES® Instructor Training Studio, PNBConditioning-the resident Pilates studio at the Pacific Northwest Ballet School and Cirque du Soleil-Seattle tours of Amaluna and Kurios. In 2021, I established Seed Pilates + Movement Training-my own intimate studio space.

Utilizing a contemporary adaptation to Pilates plus integration of Functional Movement Patterns, Fascial Movement Training and other somatic principles, I offer inclusive and approachable instruction. I use thoughtful and clear communication to facilitate supportive and encouraging classes to help my students find ways of moving that feel good for their own unique body. My programing combines intricate and small movements with bigger more coordinated exercises, along with exercise variations and options to meet each student's individual needs for challenge and focus. 

My clients say I'm a detail-oriented instructor who is greatly focused on the individual’s needs. I keep workouts interesting with a variety of exercises while still keeping the client’s fitness goals as a priority.

What my clients say...

"I've been lucky to work with Stacy for many years, in group classes, private sessions, and online sessions. Stacy is consistently well-prepared, and also responsive to my particular physical goals and needs. Stacy has such a wealth of knowledge to draw from, and I appreciate that she uses that expertise to create a carefully crafted plan for each session, which she then can adapt in the moment, to support whatever my body seems to need on the day. Also, Stacy is extremely clear and thorough in her explanations of exercises and body mechanics, which has made the transition to online sessions seamless and effective."
