Balance Point Pilates StudioView Schedule
Sevgi Leno is a BASI Pilates host and certified Pilates Instructor. She is the owner and principal instructor at Balance Point Pilates Studio. The studio moved locations in September 2017 to a larger, more open space, but still remains in the heart of downtown Davis, Ca. In addition to her Pilates training, she has a Masters of Arts in Education from UC Davis. Before taking over the studio from former owner, Barbara Zaro, Sevgi worked for 12 years as an instructor at Balance Point while also teaching elementary school. Sevgi feels very fortunate to be able to combine her two passions, education and pilates, into a full time career.
Sevgi's personal path to Pilates began in 2004 when she started as a client at Balance Point Pilates Studio. Within weeks of working out on the mat and apparatus, Sevgi perceived significant changes in her energy, strength, posture, and overall muscle tone. She enjoyed how Pilates enabled her to use her body more efficiently not only in class, but in her everyday life as well. Her growing enthusiasm and passion for education and living the “Pilates Lifestyle” inspired her to complete her comprehensive teacher training through Body Arts and Science International in 2007. She continues to teach the full complement of Pilates mat and apparatus classes at her studio where she also enjoys hosting the BASI program for aspiring new teachers.
All our instructors are graduates of the BASI Pilates Academy and are highly experienced in working with the full spectrum of population groups, ages and physical needs.
