Greta Schoenberg has been a certified Pilates instructor since 1999, helping hundreds of students of all ages and abilities refine their movement and eliminate pain. She began Pilates training as a young ballet student in 1988 before earning a BFA in Ballet from the University of Utah and dancing ballet and contemporary professionally in San Francisco and Europe, including with the Norwegian National Ballet. Greta is the founder of and associate director of programming for the San Francisco Dance Film Festival, an award-winning, internationally recognized organization now in its fifteenth season. As a ballet teacher, she served on the ballet faculty of the Youth and Teen program at ODC and The Ballet Studio in San Francisco, along with guest teaching at Alonzo King Lines Dance Center, Ruth Asawa School of the Arts, and at the Vietnam National Ballet. ​

 

​After 22 years in San Francisco, Greta and her family moved in 2020 to the stunning wine country town of Healdsburg (Sonoma County, CA) where she has developed a roving teaching practice, holding group classes in local studios and seeing private clients in their homes, outdoors, or remotely from anywhere. Greta is a founding partner of the Healdsburg Dance Collective, an advocacy group dedicated to fostering support for local dance performance and education. She teaches dance to kids and adults and a Pilates-based movement curriculum with exercises curated from trusted sources or created herself over her five decades as a mover. Greta is a  certified instructor of Lauren Ohayon's Restore Your Core program for women with pelvic core and core dysfunction, and specializes in rehabilitative practices for feet, knees, pelvis, spine, and shoulders.

Certified in Pilates instruction in 1999 and in GYROTONIC® in 2003, Greta has worked with a broad range of clients, from those with debilitating back pain to others recovering from childbirth, cancer or injury. While living for more than two decades in SF, she taught at Burlingame Pilates and as a senior trainer at the highly regarded San Francisco studio, A Body of Work, under Master Teacher Jean Sullivan, where she completed further courses through the rigorous, physical therapy-based Integrated Teacher Training (ITT) Pilates program. Greta also studied extensively with Marin-based kinesiology specialist Jean-Claude West, giving her a solid foundation in anatomical terminology and a deeper understanding of rehabilitative therapy practices.
