Robin Baartman
Pilates Instructor

Instructor: Robin

Robin Baartman, Movement Insights Certified Pilates Instructor, Professional Dancer, and biomechanics enthusiast, is fascinated with movement. Dancing her way through life, she earned a B.S. in Dance from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, served as faculty at UW-Madison and an adjunct instructor for UW Extension and performed with Li Chiao-Ping Dance Company.

She believes Pilates works to educate and balance the muscles of the body, serving as a bridge between mind and body, and everyday life and optimal performance. Robin utilizes imagery and breath work to encourage students to delve deeper into their kinesthetic awareness. Her goal as an instructor is to give students the skills and knowledge to help themselves attain their ideal of balance and reside in a happy, healthy, aligned body.

"To achieve the highest accomplishments within the scope of our capabilities in all walks of life, we must constantly strive to acquire strong, healthy bodies and develop our minds to the limit of our ability." - Joseph Pilates, Return to Life Through Contrology

Robin offers classes and private/duet sessions at Capital Fitness and Quarry Arts in Madison.
