Susan “Lily” Hollister, Owner/Master Trainer
Lily is a certified Stott™ Pilates Instructor who began her training career at the STOTT Pilates Boston Certification Center, under STOTT Master Trainer PJ O’Clair. She is certified on all levels, and is also fully certified in Injury and Special Populations.
With a degree in Arts Management (emphasis in Dance/Choreography) from Boston’s Emerson College, and extensive course work in Dance Movement Therapy from Lesley University in Cambridge, M.A., Lily set out to train independently in various locations in Europe, and across the United States.
She is a certified NIA instructor, who has practiced guided expressive movement for 17 years. She is the founder of NIR (Nerve Impulse Redirection), a teaching technique that re-awakens nerves in once dormant, unused muscles, to create stronger and more even muscle tone.
In addition to her groundbreaking work with NIR, Lily regularly attends fitness and Pilates conferences in the U.S. to advance her understanding of the human body, its movement, and healing potential. She takes pride in the precision of her corrections to achieve the body’s ultimate balance.
