BETTER BODIES PILATES

WELLNESS TEAM

Becky Suarez

Becky Suarez, NCPT

Becky discovered Pilates in her early 40's when the toll of scoliosis, a C-section and the challenges of raising two young children developed into chronic low back pain. Pilates became the "miracle" cure, and Becky decided she had to share this with as many people as she could! Now in her late 50's Becky has been teaching Pilates as her full time career since 2008 and is the Founder and President of Better Bodies Pilates, LLC which purchased Personal Best Pilates Studio (est. 1999) in 2018. Becky's original certification was from PBIA where she completed her training and 300 hour apprenticeship. In 2013 she became a Master Pilates Instructor from the Pilates Center of Boulder and passed her PMA exam through the Pilates Method Alliance in 2011 which requires 16 hours of continuing ed every 2 years. Becky has studied under Kristi White and Rael Isacowitz while completing her BASI mat certification; Rachel Taylor Segel and Amy Taylor Alpers while completing her Masters Program.
