ABOUT BTP OWNER, NADIA RODRIGUEZ

Nadia’s first experience with Pilates began in 1990, using mat exercises to cross condition for her dance training, and in 1995 using pilates equipment to rehabilitate dance-related injuries. For her instructor training, she studied under Jane Erskine, owner of one of the first Pilates studios in Seattle and daughter of the famed ballerina and first director of the Pacific Northwest Ballet, Janet Reed. Nadia completed her instructor training in 2002 at the Pacific Northwest School of Pilates. She has developed a loyal following from her work teaching in Pilates & yoga studios, physical therapy clinics, & in personal home gyms. Nadia’s practice involves working with professional athletes to those recovering from injuries and applying classical and contemporary Pilates techniques.  Her philosophy prioritizes her client’s goals and desires while teaching them how to produce somatic longevity, efficiency, and balance.   In addition to Pilates, Nadia has over 30 years of professional experience in the movement field, including Gyrotonic, yoga, gymnastics, and classical & modern dance. Before becoming a Pilates instructor she trained and danced professionally in both Seattle and NYC, where she was a trainee with the Martha Graham Dance Company.
