Intuitive Motion Pilates was founded by Master Pilates Trainer Tracie Matthews, a dedicated teacher who crafts a personalized, high-quality movement experience for each person she works with. Tracie uses her keen observational skills to guide, inspire and challenge, whether she is working with clients new to fitness training or experienced movers like actors, dancers, and athletes; pre- or postnatal moms; or anyone who is looking for a great workout.
Tracie has comprehensive rehabilitation knowledge and experience. She is especially skilled at nurturing people who are suffering chronic pain or recovering from injuries. Her training in Somatic Movement Education gives her access to an additional set of creative tools and strategies to help her clients heal and get stronger.
Tracie loves incorporating movement and dance concepts into her Pilates work. She is a certified Pilates Instructor and a certified Movement Educator in New York City. Her professional training includes kinesthetic anatomy with Irene Dowd, Dynamic Embodiment with Dr. Martha Eddy, as well as numerous professional continuing education courses with the PMA, ACE, Pilates Style, Body Mind Dancing, and others.
A native New Yorker, Tracie became a Pilates instructor after a successful career in television production.
