My name is Megan Quinn, I live and work in west philly, helping folks cultivate strength, presence, and connection in their bodies. I do this through private pilates training sessions, somatic education workshops, and art filled experiences.
I’ve been teaching and practicing movement for over a decade. After earning my BFA in dance at Temple University, I spent most of my career balancing Pilates with performance art projects, working at Pilates studios around the city, and adjuncting in university dance departments. For much of that time, I helped run the Drexel Pilates Training Program, and built their continuing education programming.
Working at the intersection of movement educators, movement artists, and those returning to their birthright of movement (aka new movers), I found myself enthralled with what it means to have a body, how our life shapes our movement patterns, and how movement impacts our personal and social experiences. I followed that curiosity to a degree in Transformative Leadership from the California Institute of Integral Studies, and began integrating systems thinking, ecological metaphors, creative exploration, and critical thinking into my teaching.
In 2022 I went in to business for myself.
I offer workshops that invite shared exploration in how movement affects our every day life. I work with private pilates clients, deepening those questions while builidng strength and resilience. And I support artistic process through private creative process support sessions and project management.
I adore my work. I get to apply metaphors of our body's function to our emotional life and value aspirations. I have the absolute pleasure and privilege of supporting bodies as they seek solace, strength, agency, connection, multiplicity, and journey through life.
embodying our lives.
