Ru Ri (Rudy) Lee BA
Certified STOTT Pilates Instructor (Matwork, Reformer, Cadillac, Chair & Barrels)
Rudy graduated from Ryerson University with a Bachelor of Interior Design. She spent many years working for an international award-winning interior design firm before leaving the design industry to follow her long-time dream of becoming a Pilates Instructor. While designing and creating beautiful spaces for multiple residences and five star hotels around the world, she developed a passion for working with others and developed her keen eye for detail.
After suffering back and hip problems following her first pregnancy, the successful rehabilitation of her injuries through STOTT Pilates® inspired Rudy to focus on her avid love of fitness and pursue her STOTT Pilates® Certification. She experienced the therapeutic benefits of Pilates first-hand and decided she wanted to teach others. Now a mother of two children, Rudy has completed her comprehensive training and obtained her full certification at the STOTT Pilates® head office in Toronto.
Rudy’s passion as an instructor comes from working with people and helping them reach their personal goals regardless of age or fitness level. She takes great interest in tailoring exercise programs for each individual in order to help improve and challenge clients to new levels of strength and body awareness. Through her attention to detail and her ability to focus on each client with care, she continuously strives to help her clients’ lives improve as they work towards fitness goals, injury prevention or injury rehabilitation. In addition to witnessing their physical progress, she enjoys seeing her clients’ energy and self-confidence grow. Being able to help others move better and to feel better gives her great satisfaction as an instructor.
