Our classes are driven by fitness research and our students’ needs. We offer individualized attention in a group setting to give you the strength, discipline, and joy to find ultimate alignment.
Susan Willrich opened the first Dailey Method franchised studio, The Dailey Method Piedmont, in 2005. Prior to launching her own studio, Susan completed her Master Instructor certification under the direction of Jill Dailey McIntosh, teaching classes at the original San Francisco and Marin locations since 2003.
Along with her business partner, Kerry Corcoran, Susan launched a second location, The Dailey Method Berkeley in 2009. In addition to instructing clients, Susan enjoys the process of recruiting and training the teaching staff at both locations. A graduate of UC Berkeley, Susan’s life-long background in dance and yoga drew her to The Dailey Method. “It combines all the elements of fitness that I truly love: yoga, pilates, and dance. I’ve tried everything, and nothing gave me the results so quickly, efficiently and safely as The Dailey Method. The emphasis on alignment and posture has helped me to stand taller, and feel more confident. Plus, it’s so nostalgic & fun to be at a ballet barre! I feel so lucky I can share it with my community.
“I like that even though I had no background in yoga, dance, etc. I was able to follow along from the first class and to benefit from the various exercises.”
We want your feedback! It is part of our Dailey practice to always being a student. We give a positive comment (KEEP) along with a constructive one (GROW) to our fellow instructors. Now we ask you to do the same for us so we can continue to provide excellent classes and service.
