Teri Seier Moore began her career as a classical ballet dancer, discovering the priceless benefit of Pilates early on while working toward her dance major at Point Park University. Teri continued her dance training at Harkness Foundation School of Dance, American Ballet Theatre School and the Alvin Ailey School. Eventually she became an accomplished choreographer of stage, film and industrials.
A decision to change careers to Pilates seemed the most natural evolution in her life. After much research to find the most comprehensive program, Teri began studying in 2008 under Pilates Master Kim Kuznitz at Bent Pilates Studio in New York City. Bent’s philosophy complemented Teri’s lifelong values on living in a sound body.
Teri’s years of Pilates training includes mat and all apparatus. Her enthusiasm and passion keeps her focus on continuing education. She also completed a Pre and Post Natal Pilates Program with Bridgette Arle “Little Bridge Pilates” in New York City. In addition, Teri conducted a lecture demo for the Ehlers Danlos Foundation, educating clients on the benefits of Pilates as a form of specialized rehabilitation.
Teri’s career in Pilates also includes a year of teaching for the clients at Pilates Reforming New York. During her years at Bent Pilates she created and founded BARRE SET GO that combines Pilates and ballet. This unique and challenging workout welcomes dancers and non-dancers alike.
She recently moved from New York City, making Miami her permanent home and is excited to continue her career in such a wonderful and beautiful environment.
We asked Teri why she loves PITG. Here’s what she had to say:
“When I first moved to Miami I was devastated to have left my friends in New York. I didn’t know where I was going to work. I went to several different studios around town and stumbled upon Pilates in the Grove. From the moment I arrived, I knew I had found my home away from home. I admire the professionalism, dedication, and warmth of the other instructors and Physical Therapists that I work with. We have the best clients in all of Miami!”
