Physical Therapist
National Pilates Certified Teacher (NPCT)
YA Certified Yoga Instructor

My new online recorded workshop is available now! 


Samantha Wood, MPT, MBA, NPCT, RYT, is a licensed physical therapist, a National Pilates Certified Teacher (NPCT), a Yoga Alliance–certified teacher, associate faculty member for BASI Pilates, and author of the book, Pilates for Rehabilitation. 

From 2000 to 2023, she owned and operated one of the first centers in the Los Angeles area (The Cypress Center) to integrate Pilates with physical therapy for people of all ages and abilities. Her clinical expertise includes Pilates-based rehabilitation, yoga therapy, orthopedics, sports therapy, and functional rehabilitation.

Sam created and teaches two advanced education courses for BASI Pilates: PILATES FOR INJURIES & PATHOLOGIES (for Pilates teachers) and PILATES: INTEGRATION INTO THERAPEUTIC PRACTICE (for rehabilitation professionals). She has been presenting these courses, as well as teaching other workshops and lecturing at Pilates conferences around the world, since 2010.

By popular request from former students of these courses and workshops, Sam is now offering PRIVATE CONSULTATIONS, either in person or via Zoom!   As a physiotherapist, certified Pilates teacher and certified yoga teacher; Sam offers a unique perspective on working with injuries.  Perhaps you have an injury or pathology and you are unsure which exercises would be unsafe and which would be beneficial.  Or perhaps you are a teacher working with a client who has an injury or pathology that you don't completely understand. Sam can help you! 

Her first book, Pilates for Rehabilitation was released on June 30, 2018 by Human Kinetics and can be purchased online from Amazon, Human Kinetics, or BASI Pilates.
