Lori Coleman-Brown is our Master Instructor and our Director of Education. A licensed Physical Therapist, she is focused on teaching Pilates lessons, as well as training, testing and mentoring new Pilates instructors. She’s responsible for Atlas Pilates educational program development and management.
In the early 1980’s Lori was sent to Joseph Pilates protegeé Romana Kryzanowska by a dance instructor in order to deal with a knee injury. The knee healed completely, and Lori became captivated by The Pilates Method. By 1986 she was teaching Pilates and in 1999 was honored when Romana asked her to be a Pilates Teacher Trainer.
In 1993, Lori moved to the Pacific Northwest to co-found The Pilates Studio of Seattle (now known as Pilates Seattle International) where she served as a Director for 16 years and successfully trained more than a hundred new Pilates instructors. Lori ultimately reached Master Teacher Trainer status (Level II) in the Romana’s Pilates organization.
Lori has a BFA in Dance from SUNY Purchase, and a Master’s degree in Physical Therapy from Temple University. She has worked as a professional dancer and as a staff physical therapist. She has worked as physical therapist for professional dance companies and backstage on Broadway shows in New York and Seattle.
Lori has been a presenter at Pilates Conferences around the world as well as American Physical Therapy Association Conventions. She tours and teaches Pilates and Anatomy in studios of all sizes in Austria, Australia, Canada, England, France, the Netherlands, Japan, Singapore, and across the United States. And she is regularly featured in Pilatesology instructional videos.
Lori stepped away from studio ownership in order to focus on her teaching and is now happily working at Atlas Pilates in Seattle. She learns something new every day while helping her clients get stronger, more flexible and happier by using the Pilates Method. She keeps up her own physical and mental conditioning by working with Yogi Eric Ovid, Pilates Instructor Teresa Shupe, and Shiatsu practitioner Yasuo Mori. She is grateful for all the wonderful teachers in the world.
