Meet Yvonne!

Yvonne Vallette has been a client with Cascadia Pilates and CoreAlign since December of 2013 - just a couple months after we opened, so she knows us well.

She has taken CoreAlign, Reformer and mat classes, so she really knows her stuff. She loves all the equipment for different reasons, but anything on the ladder barrel is great for opening up her ribcage that’s stiff from years of gymnastics. CoreAlign challenges her balance, and keeps her bad knee happy. And, everything on the reformer feels like dessert to her!

Yvonne found Cascadia after her gym closed downtown, and she wanted a new place close to home so she would be consistent. She also appreciates the flexible schedule with lots of variety of classes early in the morning plus in the evenings after work. Plus, she LOVES the instructors (Her words, we swear!)

Yvonne sees the difference that Cascadia has made in her body and her everyday movements. She's thinned out and gotten more toned, and has a "stomach like a rock!"

On the functional side, her bad knee doesn't get torqued anymore and (though she's still working on it), her ribcage is a lot less rigid.

When’s she not doing Pilates, Yvonne loves speed walking… she walks to work almost every day from March to November. She also loves getting out in the great outdoors to hike, snowshoe and kayak. Phew!
