More About Colleen - Colleen Glenn

colleenglenninspiringpilates.com [cached]

Colleen Glenn
Pilates-Functional Fitness-Purium Health Coach Colleen was born in Odessa, Texas. As a tom-boy she chased lizards, surfed sand dunes and wrestled with her four brothers. At a young age, her family moved to Ohio and here she learned to appreciate the magic and rhythms inherent in the four seasons and nature itself. She rode horses, excelled at winter activities, chased other children through farm fields and continued to wrestle with her brothers, she was strong. While living in Ohio, the Cleveland Ballet awarded her a scholarship based solely on her physicality, a whole new world to channel her energies in movement, performing and teaching was discovered. At fifteen she began her teaching career by offering ballet instruction using her family home basement as a studio, the pool table was used as the ballet barre. Relocation back to her home state of Texas brought Colleen additional opportunities to perform, teach and investigate fitness, somatic methods and movement. She opened her own dance studio, co-founded a non-profit dance theater company and performed with local dance companies in Houston and internationally. At Bally's Fitness Clubs, a leader in the health club industry at that time, Colleen taught exercise. "If one could teach dance in those Jackie Sorenson days, and when Kenneth Cooper coined the word 'aerobics,' one could get a job in the group X department at Ballys." While dancing in Houston, Colleen was introduced to a therapeutic form of Pilates and after a brief internship with Elizabeth Jones Boswell began teaching. While auditioning in New York, Colleen took Pilates lessons from Romana Kryzanowska (an Elder) and was introduced to a dynamic, rhythmic and athletic form of Pilates known by many as classical Pilates. To educate herself in this style of Pilates, Colleen studied at the feet of Romana as often as possible in New York and at the Houston Ballet. Romana Kryzanowska and Wei Ti Holmes were contracted to operate the Pilates program at the Houston Ballet where Colleen taught and this was the beginning of her immersion and grounding in the classical Pilates system. Sean Gallagher, a physical therapist in partnership with Romana and principle plantiff in The Pilates Trademark Case, investigated opening a teacher training center in Texas with Colleen. Colleen moved on with her own comprehensive teacher training program The PilateSystem and later The GoodBody's System Certification. The Pilates Trademark Case with the US Patent & Trademark Office ruled that "Pilates," whether describing a method of exercise, a type of equipment or a kind of exercise studio, could not be trademarked, thus freeing it for use by all those who teach or offer Pilates programs and equipment. In 1990, Colleen was recruited to incorporate Pilates in a health club, The Richardson Athletic Club, outside of Dallas, Texas. This position was instrumental because she was able to develop programs for incorporating and adapting Pilates in a health club setting. Colleen developed Group X classes introducing Pilates' concepts and the Pilates system to members. With this, She learned the health club business and participated in work hardening programs headed up by neurologist John Walker. She created programming for injured patients including Pilates, water therapy and other corrective exercise. After working at the Richardson Athletic club Colleen became a managing partner in The Oasis Physical Conditioning Center, where she taught somatic methods, Ron Fletcher work and other movement modalities. Colleen sold her partnership and transitioned back into the health club setting after several years. Her mission to educate the masses and introduce them to classical Pilates was best facilitated through the health club venue. She became Program Director at the Spa at Crescent and the tenant of balanced programming came fully to life as she incorporated strength and cardiovascular training along and Pilates programming options for members. Her programs were some of the first integrated programs of its kind in the country. She also facilitated teacher certification programs for the Pilates Institute, later known as the PhysicalMind Institute. Five years after Glenn Studio Inc., opened its doors it merged with GoodBody's Wellness Center in Dallas, Texas where Colleen became managing partner. She coordinated a holistic programming addressing the entire person; body, mind and spirit. GoodBody's Wellness Center incorporated traditional training modalities as well as various forms of therapeutic and athletic yoga. The facility had a state of the art Yoga studio with two large rooms and a fully equipped 3,000 square foot Pilates studio. Coordinated efforts with local professionals addressing nutrition, meditation and other somatic techniques as well as spiritual practices were included. Colleen continued comprehensive teacher training programs under GoodBody's Wellness Center umbrella with the GoodBody's PilateSystem. After many successful years Colleen and her husband made a crucial decision to move to Colorado to live their dream of enrolling their son in a Waldorf School. Her family chose to attend the school in Boulder . Boulder was also home to Peak Pilates equipment manufacturing company and Colleen was asked to spear-head the development of a new education program for the company. A large portion of the master and domestic teacher trainers, who train other trainers both domestically and internationally with Peak Pilates, started their teaching and teacher training careers with Colleen. Many of her students have gone on to facilitate teacher training programs with Stott, Power Pilates and or have developed their own programs. She has personally trained hundreds of students throughout the world. In 2009 Peak Pilates became part of the Mad Dogg Athletics family of companies. After more than seven years with Peak Pilates, Colleen re-entered the Pilates studio setting to teach and left the company. Her roots were calling, grounding her back to simply teaching the average person who desired what she could offer them. Colleen also missed the sound of equipment and springs moving when being worked on, the breathing and rhythms in a Pilates studio, the unique rhythmic cuing, relationships with clients and other wonderful nuances of connecting and being in a community of teachers teaching in a studio. Locally, Colleen teaches at Body Dynamics and Rally Sport in Boulder, Colorado incorporating Kinesis, TRX , functional training and Pilates. She writes, teaches continuing education workshops and lectures, locally and worldwide. Colleen is truly honored and privileged to have had so many teachers study under her tutelage and, as a second generation teacher is honored to have studied with Romana Kryzanowska and other Elders. Colleen is enthusiastic about sharing her expertise for your physical and mental health as well your spiritual well-being.

Through dieting and exercise I was able to lose 40 pounds. I began studying with Colleen and found that I have greater energy, my strength and posture has been improved and that although I had lost weight the inches didn't come off until I did Pilates. Now my waist is 6 inches smaller, my muscles are leaner and for the first time in years my chest is larger than my stomach. I now have a 2 pack stomach and am working towards a 6 pack; my wife thinks I'm buff! "Colleen infuses her passion and knowledge in a way that allows instructors to absorb and replicate what she teaches, especially in dealing with progression and exercises on the Chair.
