Samantha is the ultimate Pilates Instructor. She has an exceptional understanding of the art with impeccable attention to detail - Peter Suchanek (Mediator)
Samantha Clayton is a fitness professional certified through The Pilates Method Alliance (PMA) - the only standardized certification body in all of North America - with over 15 years in the field. Samantha completed her training in "The Original Method" or Classical Pilates, in upstate New York. Although the extent of her private teaching is therapeutic in nature, her group classes are popular with those seeking condition-based results. Ms. Clayton is both a Barre and High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) Instructor.
Samantha has worked as part of a health & wellness team in the field of rehabilitation. She has designed and taught teacher training programs in Toronto, including one specifically for the YMCA. Her concern for the aging demographic led her to design a specialty class exclusively for the management of Osteoporosis ("Osteopilates" classes).
Having received her Pink Ribbon Certification twelve years ago, Samantha continues to teach individuals challenged by a variety of conditions – predominantly those living with breast cancer and osteoporosis. As a Breast Cancer Exercise Specialist (BCES) her focus is to assist in the post-surgery phase of treatment where emphasis is placed on improving range of motion, restoring both posture and confidence, and gradually rebuilding strength. She finds movement to be an honest and wonderful teacher for everybody. Pilates provides each person the opportunity to take an active role in his/her health through movement.
Samantha is also a brand ambassador for Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods!
