About Saskia Nora Bryan

Saskia became a Pilates enthusiast after taking her first class at Pilates PLUS back in 2002. A yoga practitioner for many years, Saskia was drawn to Pilates as a wonderful complement to her practice. As a result, after several years of being a client, Saskia made the leap to instruction by training directly with Eme through her pilot instructor training program at Pilates PLUS. Saskia relishes the opportunity to work with clients so that she can share her passion for Pilates and the ways in which it can help to improve health, posture, strength, and overall feeling. Saskia is also an attorney for a small law firm downtown, and credits Pilates for helping her maintain fitness and relieve stress in what is a mostly sedentary and stressful occupation. In addition to remaining a loyal client of Pilates PLUS, Saskia is also an avid walker and hiker.
