Stacia Boynton Expressive Movement Coach, Co-Founder of Creating the Space Stacia uses movement, art, and sensory based techniques with children and families to enhance awareness of connections between the body, brain, and breath. This integrated approach helps clients to find their inner strength, confidence, and ability to regulate their bodies and minds. Stacia is currently welcoming children ages 3-12 for individualized and child & caregiver sessions at Transitions Training. These sessions can be therapeutic, but it is not therapy. Children can work with an expressive arts coach as compliment to, or alternative to traditional talk therapy. Consulting opportunities available upon request for Stacia to join your child's wellness team.

"Transitions Training is a wonderful combination of mindfulness, pilates, NKT, the GYROTONIC® Method, and much more. Sue Boynton is extremely knowledgeable in her analysis of issues and best practices to better them. Highly recommend. - Jess.G, Client
"I’ve had the honor and pleasure of working with Sue over the years at her Transitions Training Studio. As a licensed physical therapist, I value her expertise not only in Pilates training, but her exceptional knowledge of anatomy, biomechanics, functional movement and sports medicine. She has helped me overcome chronic low back issues, core strength deficits, and past surgeries that were contributing to my dysfunctional movement patterns. I am so grateful having discovered Sue and the incredible gifts she has to offer. She helps you understand your body and addresses the root cause of dysfunction so that you can move forward and strengthen in a safe way. I have referred many of my patients to Sue and they have shared it was always a positive experience. If you are struggling with pain or feel limited with your physical activities, I highly recommend Sue Boynton. You will not be disappointed!" - Martha Tassinari , Owner of Custom Fit Physical Therapy
