Siri Dharma will be BACK in January of 2015, if you missed her recent five day visit in May 2014. Suncoast Pilates & Personal Training Studio was proud to have hosted workshops and privates and duets with Pilates Presenter extraordinaire Siri Dharma Galliano, trainer to the Hollywood stars. Siri is one of the leading Pilates trainers in North America and Europe. She is a renowned New York Pilates instructor with over 20 years of experience, she has trained actors on location in feature films such as The Matrix 2, The Matrix 3, Batman, and the Kill Bill films. In addition to her studio and film work, Ms. Galliano has traveled the world helping to sculpt the bodies of celebrity clients such as Madonna, Sting, Uma Thurman, Cameron Diaz, Carrie-Anne Moss and Jessica Lange.
A protégé of Romana Kryzanowska, the Master Pilates teacher who was trained by Joe Pilates, Ms. Galliano is also certified in Kundalini yoga by Yogi Bhajan. ”She is a brilliant teacher”, shared Ms. Kryzanowska, and “one of my favorite people in the world”.
Ms. Galliano’s unique approach to fitness brings students an awareness of Pilates techniques and health traditions regardless of their age or physical condition. Her instruction incorporates a combination of focus, joy and a refreshing sense of humor. Famed for getting tangible results, she is one of the most sought-after experts on Pilates, and has been featured on television and in several major magazines, entertaining and informing audiences with her passionate views.
Regarding teaching Pilates workshops, Ms. Galliano states “people just become better teachers after a workshop. They see, touch, cue, and choose differently. They get inspired and love teaching more. It’s about their bodies, and their clients, but the emphasis is always about a bigger picture, of the complete System; that Pilates is a system, not just the Reformer or Mat or Chair or Cadillac. The smaller things are important, the foot corrector and pedipole and armchair, especially for the older and injured population.” She will be sharing Pilates training secrets used to train the stars as well as healthy and injured bodies.
Check back for dates for Siri’s January 2015 workshops, privates and duets.
