Elizabeth Walls

Born in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, Beth was raised on skis and horseback and loves all things outdoors. When a backpacking adventure ruptured discs in Beth’s spine, she began the quest for a lasting solution. The professional writer/editor discovered the transformative power of Pilates and felt a calling to share it with others—a modality she believes is body, mind, and life altering.

With nearly 20 years of experience, including 5+ years at a physical therapy clinic, this PhysicalMind Institute®-trained instructor is equipped to adapt to injuries, pregnancy, and all fitness levels, and strives to make every class fresh, fun, and effective. Though Beth still freelances in writing, and can’t get enough of Pilates, barre, musical theater, and the great outdoors, her greatest devotion belongs to her husband and three amazing children!
