Beth Glosten, MD, a board certified Anesthesiologist, left the practice of medicine in 1997, in part because of significant back problems. She was introduced to Pilates that year, and appreciated the benefits to her back so much that she studied to become a certified instructor through the PhysicalMind institute in 1999. Since then, she has operated her own studio, Harmonia Body Balance, in Redmond, Washington. Beth is also an accomplished dressage horseback rider and found that Pilates improved her performance in this sport. She now specialized in working with fellow dressage riders as well as individuals with back pain and other movement issues. More information about Beth can be found at www.riderPilates.com.
