Somayeh Moza 

My greatest joy in life is to help individuals understand how their bodies move everyday and most importantly to be aware of it in order to eliminate unnecessary tension, which can lead to injuries. The connection between mind and body is of the utmost importance to me, and I focus my work on assisting clients with finding the flow and rhythm between the two. While I am a Pilates instructor to heart, I also focus on all sorts of movements that help clients to have a deeper understanding of their bodies.

I work towards to gain more knowledge in order to help my clients understand why certain changes are developing in their bodies and how they can embrace those changes and work towards a more balanced and harmonious body. Together, we figure out what works best for them.  

I no longer walk into a session with an agenda in mind since upwards of 90% of the time it goes out the window due to how a client may feel physically and mentally on that particular day. No one’s body is the same, so there is no one thing that works for every person. Every session is like a puzzle; I don’t eliminate exercises until I have tried every possible modification.

I encourage you to “Just Move.” Whether it’s Pilates, hiking, biking, walking, yoga, or playing with your dog anything that encourages you to move your body. Do your body and your mind a favor by staying active. You will be a much happier person. 

Don’t forget that your body is your first teacher; listen to it and respect its needs.



How did you get into Pilates?

I accompanied a friend of mine many moons ago for an informercial she was shooting with Mari Winsor. One of the talents did not show up and they asked me to jump in and that was it....

Why did you become a Pilates Teacher?

I simply wanted to share what brought me the most joy in life. Also, how Pilates helped me to be a more patient human being and to be kind to my body.

Describe a Pilates session with you in three words.

Breath. Compassion. Grace. 

 

 

Fill in the sentence: When I'm not teaching...

I love to read, play the piano, and engage in any activity that reconnects me with nature. I also love to spend time with my family and friends who continue to inspire me and keep me grounded.

What can people expect from a Pilates session with you?

Expect yourself to breathe and be in the moment without judgement. Be kind to your body.
