PHH’s owner/instructor Martha Stichweh was fortunate her parents were introduced to Hilton Head Island back in the 1960’s, and purchased an island beach house for their family. The first time Martha crossed the bridge and smelled the pluff mud she knew she was home. She can now say she has been in paradise for over 50 years and has no intention of living anywhere else.
Martha found Pilates during a painful bout of hip bursitis and fell in love with the practice. It was at the encouragement of her Pilates instructor she embarked several months later on a year long study to become a Pilates Instructor. She has been practicing and teaching Pilates ever since on the island. Martha studied under Balanced Body’s world renowned Master Instructor Jennifer Gianni of Fusion Pilates in Asheville, NC, receiving certification in Balanced Body’s Comprehensive Program covering all apparatuses. She has also been certified in the SmartSpine Wellness System with Master Instructor and SmartSpine Wellness System Creator Marie-José Blom and continues to learn through continuing education courses and workshops.
As Joseph Pilates said, “After 10 sessions you will feel the difference, after 20 sessions you will see the difference and after 30 sessions you will have a whole new body!”
Martha loves to see the changes in her clients and hear how happy they are to have found Pilates! Call her at 843.715.4545 to schedule an appointment or class today.
