PILATES Instructor

Dan Kobussen

Dan had his first introduction to Pilates back in 2004. He found that it was a great way to promote a healthy lifestyle against a demanding career in finance. However, it wasn’t until 2012 that Dan began to understand the life-long benefits regular Pilates practice provides to re-align broken posture, re-program incorrect movement patterns, and re-condition the body to perform optimally for any activity. After years of sitting hunched over a keyboard and staring at a monitor, Dan’s back, shoulders, and neck had become rounded forward. He could no longer move his shoulder blades; his back muscles were in constant spasm; and one day he lost the use of his right arm to nerve pain. Pilates was instrumental to Dan’s recovery. Because he was inspired by the transformative power of the practice, Dan completed the Balanced Body Pilates training program at EHS Studios in San Francisco, and he is dedicating his future to helping others achieve well being in their everyday activities.
