Pat Guyton, PMA®-CPT, has been teaching Pilates for over 33 years. She began her movement career as a modern dancer and later was a gymnastic choreographer and USGF sanctioned coach. Pat discovered Pilates in 1984 and began her mentorship. Pat was privileged to have taken workshops with First Generation Teachers: Kathy Grant, Lolita San Miguel, Mary Bowen, Bruce King and Ron Fletcher. This experience has provided a view of the diversity of the lineages and the value that each of these teachers contributed to the evolution of the Pilates Method. Pat studied with Ron Fletcher in depth. In 1995, she met and mentored with him by traveling to his workshops. Ron granted Pat permission to codify his work in 1998 and she served as his assistant at workshops. In 2000 he awarded her a master teacher certificate of merit of The Ron Fletcher Work. Ron Fletcher was improvisational in his teaching. He was able to analyze what the class needed within the first few minutes. He developed his unique style and additions of elements to his teaching. Those who traveled with him were able to see him choreograph and refine a new moment in the moment. This environment has informed Pat to be open to see what a client or class needs and to adapt for the individual. Pat lives in Boulder and was employed at Boulder Osteopathic Center as a registered physical medicine assistant in Colorado for ten years. This position offered her the opportunity to work with a variety of patients who needed exercise programs tailored for individual rehabilitation. The experience also fostered the coordination of Pilates with other health care professionals for the benefit of the client or patient. She has presented Pilates at numerous medical conferences. Pat is the founder and owner of Pat Guyton Pilates Conservatory®, which offers mentorship programs, continuing education and a comprehensive teacher training program and she has a fully equipped studio in Boulder, CO. Pat is a Franklin Method® Educator, Level III. Her style of teaching emphasizes functional anatomy and imagery to provide a safe and healthy exercise environment.
