ABOUT THE OWNER
Eva Meier, CPT, PN1
After her own personal experiences with mobility issues, Eva Meier founded the Line Method to help others learn how to move and live better in their own bodies. As a dancer in her youth, Eva battled with unexplained sciatica and pelvic instability. After multiple rounds of physical therapy, Eva still felt limitations in her movement and life. Determined to find a solution to her health challenges and help others with theirs, Eva received her Personal Training Certification through the ISSA in 2014 while completing her first personal training mentorship in Chicago, IL at South Loop Strength and Conditioning.
Her journey into the fitness world led her to numerous mentors that shaped her views on movement education, including industry professionals in Olympic lifting, bodybuilding, Pilates and physical therapy. And after many years of searching and working with professionals, she finally received a diagnosis of having HSD – Hypermobility Spectrum Disorder in 2021.
Her experience with chronic movement limitations helped shape The Line Method. It organically grew into a fitness practice that encompassed longevity, sustainability, and of course, enjoyability. We understand that to move well and feel confident in your body, you need a holistic approach that integrates fitness and training techniques from multiple disciplines.

"Eva is simply amazing and will get you to your goals. "
"I've had some Reformer experience at different studios but Eva makes it a very productive and unique experience! Her positive attitude, boundless energy and independent approach are harnessed into tailored sessions that work various "problem" areas. Eva is a creative teacher as well as a good listener. She knows how to make each session challenging and results-oriented but also fun."
"I have been working with Eva for the past couple of months. My first ever Pilates class was one-on-one with Eva. I have taken countless workout classes (private and group) and this is by far my favorite workout, and Eva has been my absolute favorite instructor! Flexibility, strengthening and toning have always been my areas of interest & of everything I have tried, Pilates has given me the best results and has also been the most enjoyable – especially with Eva! Her detailed instruction is easy to follow, which is a relief for a novice like me. Usually I can’t wait to finish my workout for the day, but with this class/her instruction I am actually sad when it comes to an end! She even takes video to show how I have made progress or to give constructive feedback. I cannot say enough positive things about Eva or Pilates, but I will say that you should DEFINITELY take her class."
