Svea McMath


Prior to becoming a certified Pilates instructor and instructor in The Gyrotonic® Method, Svea McMath trained professionally in ballet for over a decade.

Being on the East Coast provided her the opportunity to travel to New York City to become certified by Power Pilates in Core Mat I & II. Ms. McMath was offered a traineeship with Pittsburgh Ballet as well as a personal invitation from Christopher Hird to train further at Sarasota Ballet. Her dream was to have a professional career as a dancer so she put further Pilates training on hold to pursue this goal. Her ballet career was abruptly cut short that summer with a stress fracture to her spine and it was soul-searching time. Uncertain of what step to take next in life, there was one constant in her heart: the joy and passion for movement which inspired her to complete The Power Pilates 600-Hour Comprehensive Apparatus Program. 

 Within a year of moving back to the Bay Area in 2018, Ms. McMath has completed her certification in The GYROTONIC ® Method and additional piece of specialized GYROTONIC ®  apparatus with Kathy Van Patten and Lisa Marie Goodwin.  Ms. McMath is proud to share her passion for fluid, graceful, rehabilitative movement through the beauty of The Gyrotonic® Method.
