Peter Vaillancourt is one of the original Pilates teachers to work directly with Carola Trier (1st generation Pilates teacher and Francisco Moncion New York City Ballet). Upon scholarship studies at the School of Performing Arts CA., Peter was invited to join both the Martha Graham and Jose Limon dance companies. Peter’s personal experience with a severe back injury led him to study a variety of body therapies and create his own style of treatment.
Incorporating techniques from various body movement methods, as well as massage therapy,
Peter has developed and integrated, hands-on approach to addressing structural issues with a goal of treating the causes of pain, rather than just the symptoms.
In addition to his Pilates training, Peter is a New York State licensed myo-fascial medical massage and Shiatsu massage therapist. He has studied cranio sacral work with R. Jokel PT, and movement patterning, scoliosis with Marika Molnar,PT. for New York City Ballet.
