Claire Zimmer  -  Apprentice Instructor

Originally from Portland, Oregon, Claire has lived in San Francisco since 2009 where she completed a BA in Communication Studies from the University of San Francisco. Claire was introduced to Pilates in college after suffering a foot injury while rock climbing. Impressed by how quickly her body began to rehabilitate itself beyond just the foot led her to continue her practice and never look back. 

Claire is a passionate traveler and has taken her Pilates practice to over 40 countries in the past three years, giving her a unique and diverse perspective of Pilates. Having trained with a wide-variety of instructors around the world, she recently completed her Balanced Body coursework under Master Trainer Sook Fun Chen in Bali, Indonesia and is in the process of completing the rest of her Balanced Body certification. 

Claire is an enthusiastic learner and fascinated by how the body functions optimally. She believes strongly in the connection between the mind and body, exuding positivity, humor and discipline in her teaching.
