Premier Pilates

Premier Pilates is a fully equipped Pilates studio in South Lake Union offering top quality training for both rehabilitation and conditioning.

Begin the new year with peace and tranquility -- a walk in a park in the mist of morning, a pleasant drive by winter fields resting for spring, or buried deep in a reading chair by the fire in a cabin in the snowy stillness of the forest.
Happy New Year to all of you! May everything go right this year.

We’re lucky our pets don’t care being personified – and we humans eat it up, turning our dogs, in particular, into little miniature children. But cute is cute, however you get there. And by the way, Pierre says Merry Christmas to all of you – really, I heard him say it! And Merry Christmas from me to all my dearest students.

In case you are hesitant...

Thanksgiving is fast approaching and I want to thank all of you for being such great loyal clients. Some of you have been coming to Premier Pilates for a long time – and for that I am grateful. Some of you just started and I hope you will stick around for a while and find that Premier Pilates is not just a regular studio. We have much more to offer in addition to Pilates workouts – friendship, laughter, the same values and the same concerns for the future of our country. I am grateful I have you, my dear clients and friends, and I hope we will continue working together sculpting our bodies and shaping our minds.

With love,


Shock is hardly strong enough. For those who saw Donald Trump as a reprehensible excuse for a human being, it is staggeringly discomfiting to see him elected. But like in any election, we can gather from the results what must be true in America, a truth we hardly imagined was there, but was, and with such ferocity.

And the truth will hurt:

1. The character of our leaders means nothing, and has no bearing on the success of our country.

2. The intelligence, experience, and knowledge of our leaders means nothing, and has no bearing on the success of our country.

3. Bullies are trusted and supported more than civil people.

4. Americans think the world is an easy place to manage if only we throw our weight around, act tough, and stand ready to defeat all enemies real or imagined. Foreign policy is reduced to a video game in the American mind.

5. Americans say they want money out of politics, yet elect the very people who will ensure it remains the essence of political power.

6. Americans are easy marks for lies, misinformation, and rumor, and have no idea they are the victim of a massive and unprincipled right wing propaganda machine.

I am saddened and embarrassed too.

William Golding Quote

Here is the full quote from William Golding, British Novelist, Playwright and Poet:
"I think women are foolish to pretend they are equal to men. They are far superior and always have been. Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater. If you give her sperm, she will give you a baby. If you give her a house, she will give you a home. If you give her groceries, she will give you a meal. If you give her a smile, she will give you her heart. She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her. So if you give her any crap, be ready to receive a ton of shit!"

What else to say? I think women are foolish to pretend they are equal to men, they are far superior and always have been.

A bad forecast that doesn’t happen is always appreciated. But we couldn’t escape the wet stuff, with umbrellas and rain coats also much appreciated. Little Pierre got to model his first raincoat and seemed to enjoy sporting about in high fashion. For the rest of us, keep the rain gear handy all week, but look for some late week sunshine peeking through. Have an inspired week.

Oh, my aching back!! Did he really say that? New research supports claim that unbelievably inappropriate statements by a candidate creates a pain in the back – also in neck, and very commonly in butt. We are working hard here at Premier Pilates to save you from an epidemic of politically induced aches and pains. In the next three weeks before the election, we stand ready to deliver emergency treatments. It is predicted that after the election all pain should end abruptly for most people. For those few still experiencing pain, we suspect the cause may be a mental defect, and nothing we can help you with.
