Erin Murphy – Instructor / Owner
Erin Murphy first experienced Pilates as a young dancer in Vancouver, British Columbia. Her dance career took her to Montreal and then to New York City. While in New York, she began to study Pilates more intensively. She began her Pilates Teacher Training at The Kane School of Core Integration and later moved to Boulder, Colorado to complete the highly respected Pilates Center Teacher Training Advanced Program, from which she graduated in 2004. In 2011 she also completed The Pilates Center Teacher Training Master’s Program.
Erin is a natural teacher. Years of dance training have contributed to an ability to clearly see the needs of the bodies before her. Her clients will share that she has a very gentle way of encouraging them to work very hard! She is passionate about teaching classical Pilates and continuously seeks out opportunities to learn more about the genius of Joseph Pilates and the profound benefits of the system he devised. She is fully committed to helping her clients in becoming their strongest, healthiest, and happiest selves through the classical Pilates method.
After more than ten years of teaching Pilates throughout Vancouver, it was a natural progression to open her own studio in 2015. In her free time Erin enjoys yoga, biking, cooking for family and friends and spending time with her two children and husband in beautiful Vancouver.
