Shauna began her STOTT PILATES® instruction in 1999 to rehab a reoccurring injury from many years of ballet training. She fell in love with the movement, range of motion and strength training Pilates provided and she decided she wanted to share it with others. She began her certification in the method in 2000 while finishing her BA at Drury University in Studio Art and Art History and is now an Instructor Trainer for MERRITHEW™ specializing in STOTT PILATES. Shauna is owner of The Bodysmith Pilates & Fitness Studio and The Pit Boxing Gym in Springfield, Missouri. She enjoys using Pilates to rehabilitate clients as well as combine the worlds of athletic training and mind-body fitness to create strong whole athletes at any level.
