Ellen Liang

Ellen is guided by the belief that mindful and disciplined movement help us live with ease in our bodies, cultivate equanimity and find freedom from pain and limitations.
She discovered Pilates in 2011, after many years of practicing yoga and then teaching yoga since 2007. Appreciating the complementary nature of both disciplines, she trained and became certified in 2013 at Vitality Pilates in Seattle.
Ellen is constantly searching for more ways to move efficiently, creatively and therapeutically. Helping students attain body awareness, optimal mobility and alignment, regardless of limitations or age, is constantly gratifying.
Always in her mind is this advice from yoga master Angela Farmer: “Think of your body like a house, and live in every room.”
When not in a studio, Ellen enjoys hiking, dancing, pickle ball and creating nutritious meals.


Ellen Liang instructs the following:
  • Beg/Int Reformer Pilates
  • This class is designed for anyone who wants to refine the essential principles of Pilates. You can be guaranteed to see more results out of all your workouts when you accurately understand how to activate the deeper layers of the core, align the bones of your spine and pelvis and maintain an active and connected breath.

    If you have recently begun practicing Pilates, we recommend you start with this class level. However, even the most advanced students will benefit from mastering the detailed review this class will cover.

    Note: If you have no previous Pilates experience and are not familiar with using a reformer you should sign up for an initial private session with one of our instructors prior to taking this class. We offer this at a discounted price of $40.


  • Int/Adv Reformer Flow
  • This class will incorporate specialized Pilates workouts incorporating reformers, wall springs, mat and small equipment. All students must be injury free or proficient at making modifications for injury. A thorough understanding of anatomy along with spacial body awareness is required to participate in this class.
     
    Note: This class is for those with significant Pilates experience. Please do not sign up for this class unless you are at the appropriate skill level and have been cleared to take the class by an instructor.
