Caitlin Ryan (she/her)
Caitlin began her career in Pilates in Vancouver in 2005, under the tutelage of Master Trainer,
Marta Hernandez. Caitlin completed her Mat Pilates certification the same year, and started her
comprehensive training and apprenticeship immediately after, completing her exams with PhysicalMind Institute in England in 2007. In 2006 Caitlin left Vancouver for Paris, France, and began teaching Pilates full-time. While living in Paris, Caitlin also completed a Yoga Teacher Training program, and was able to study briefly under Pilates Elder, Mary Bowen, as well as other Master trainers in methods such as Gyrotonic, yoga, Feldenkrais, and of course Pilates.
Caitlin then spent a few years teaching in the birth place of Pilates: New York City. This
gave her the opportunity to work with numerous teachers of various lineages, focusing
especially on Classical Pilates with many Ramona trained instructors. After NYC, Caitlin moved
to Argentina, where she was able to teach English language classes to other non-spanish-
speaking immigrants, while also attempting to learn the language!
After Argentina, it was on to Sydney, Australia. In Sydney Caitlin worked at a number of
Pilates studios, one of which was a STOTT PILATES training studio where she was able to go further into her Pilates studies with multiple certificate courses. Caitlin is a mother to two young boys. After almost 16 years teaching Pilates, Caitlin still considers herself a life-long learner, and looks forward to continuously broaden her knowledge of the body and the method. She recently returned back to Vancouver, and is thrilled to be living and working in East Van.
