THE LARGEST PRIVATE STUDIO IN RALEIGH
ABOUT FULL CIRCLE PILATES
Samantha Chase is a Pilates and CoreAlign instructor and owner of Full Circle Pilates Raleigh, NC. She started to practice Pilates in 2004 after experiencing both the increased physical fitness and mind/body health benefits from Pilates. In 2011 while managing the Quality department for a Clinical Trails management company in Rockville, MD, Samantha decided to obtain her mat certification from Power Pilates. Upon moving to Durham, she was excited to find that InsideOut Body Therapies is a licensed teacher training facility for The Pilates Center of Boulder, Colorado. Samantha wanted to attend TPC for several years, but was unable to do so due to her demanding schedule.
In 2012, Samantha decided to leave corporate America and embark upon a new career. She attended Pilates Then and Now, a workshop by Second Generation Master Rachel Taylor Segal, and continued on to graduate from the 950-hour training program. She completed her internship at InsideOut Body Therapies in 2013 under the guidance of Mischa Decker and Deborah Matthews and subsequently became a Pilates Method Alliance (PMA) Certified Pilates Instructor. Samantha’s classical training, analytical background, and keen eye for details has led to her personal style in both aiding clients in body rehabilitation efforts and increasing strength and coordination of athletes. Training and working at InsideOut Body Therapies has allowed Samantha to work side by side with Physical Therapists daily to further her education. Due to this unique environment, Samantha has worked with clients recovering from knee and hip replacements, labral tears, rotator cuff tears, plantar fasciitis, SI joint disfunction, disc herniation and degeneration as well as countless other injuries.
In both 2013 and 2014 Samantha attended workshops on the maternal pelvis and Pilates for pre- and post-natal clients. Always thirsty for new knowledge, Samantha attends continuing education on a regular basis. In 2014 she was honored to train with First Generation Masters Lolita San Miguel (History of the Pilates Method, the Ped-O-Pull, and other Pilates Props) and Mary Bowen (Body and the Psyche: The Wonder of the Trapeze and the Wonder of the 4th Function). In addition, she attended the Defy Gravity workshop presented by Second Generation Master Amy Taylor Alpers.
Samantha continued her training beyond Pilates in 2017 by attending CoreAlign 1: Foundations Training with Joy Puleo of Balanced Body. In 2018 she completed CoreAlign 2:Progressions Training and enjoys introducing her clients to this additional piece of equipment that integrates with Pilates beautifully. Samantha’s ultimate fitness goal is to obtain the athleticism and fluidity displayed by her cat Dizzy. Perhaps in the next life…
