Our Mission To Help People Like You
At Perseverance Movement Specialists and Pilates we love to help people in their 40's, 50's, 60's & beyond get back to actively living the life they want and deserve. Which means a life that isn't weighed down by fear, limitation, not feeling like yourself, depending on painkillers or having to keep going back to the doctor for procedures or pills, but a life wherein you can confidently enjoy doing all the things you love without the worry of pain or causing a larger problem later.
When you have to face sudden or continual chronic pain in you lower back, hips and knees, neck, shoulders, or if you experience an injury from exercise or sport - it can be very easy to just tell yourself it will "just go away" with time and rest" or that it "isn't really that bad or limiting."
No matter how much people hope and seek the quick fix magic bullet they often suffer longer than they need to and find themselves creating other aches, pains and problems elsewhere in their body and as time goes on they end up giving up and limiting the activities they love.
The pain and limitations often end up worse than before and requires longer to truly address all the problems that have now been created.
With so many options out there about what to do or where to do for help and direction it can be overwhelming.
The thought of making the wrong decision, wasting your time, money or putting your current or future health at risk can cause so much indecision it is hard to take action.
That is why we are here to support you by listening to your story and goals and provide all the information you need to make a confident decision for your health and fitness.

“ Here Are 3 People We’ve Helped Recently ”
Early 30s, Santa Barbara, CA
I thought I could just heal on my own and take some ibuprofen and the pain would go away but it just wasn't working. My pain was pretty bad. It was affecting my personal life. I couldn't work out anymore. Since coming here I've had a lot less pain. I've felt a lot looser and my posture has been a lot better.
Mid 30s, Santa Barbara, CA
I was having severe pain in multiple parts of my body and unable to do my job, participate in the activities that I enjoy or sleep for more than a few hours. Yvonne clearly has a deep understanding of the human body and is also a very talented Pilates instructor. Her methods have changed my life.
Late 40s, Santa Barbara, CA
I tried all the things you usually try when you first get hurt, you know, you take some risks, you take some painkillers, you try icing, stretching, those sorts of things and they'd help in spots. But it just wasn't functioning the way I knew it should at this point. Now I can do most of what I want to do!
