Susan Mayo

Founder / CEO

Susan Mayo is the owner and primary instructor at Motion Management Pilates.  Susan holds a Master’s Degree in Exercise Science from California University of Pennsylvania and a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication from Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida. It was while completing her Master’s Degree that Susan began to undertake her Comprehensive Pilates Education through Power Pilates.   This is an extensive nine-month study of the Pilates Method which required over 600 hours of teaching and practice. Susan apprenticed under Tess Whelan who is a Master Teacher Trainer with Power Pilates and a protégé to Pilates Elder and Joseph Pilates student, Romana Krysanowska

Susan is also a proud graduate of the Kathleen Stafford Grant Heritage Training under the expert mentorship of Master Teacher Cara Resser.  Cara traces her Pilates lineage through Pilates Elder Kathy Grant, also a protégé to Joseph Pilates. The Heritage Training is a Master’s level dive into the Pilates Method through the wonderful and creative eyes of Kathy Grant. The seven-month adventure took Susan to Denver, Colorado for a hands-on experience with other Pilate’s professionals at Cara’s Pilates Aligned Studios.
