Lowen is a Bay Area native, and life-long athlete. She specializes in human movement and rehabilitation as an orthopedic physical therapist, and enjoys working with athletes of all ages and abilities. She strives to help others achieve their personal goals, even if they don't involve her favorites: climbing, volleyball and whaleboat rowing.

After a short stint back East to toughen up and study ecology/biology, Lowen returned to receive her physical therapy degree at UCSF/SFSU, and her Pilates training at ITT Pilates here in the Presidio. She continues to be a student of human movement, and her influences include yoga, Pilates, sports, the latest biomechanical research, and the animal kingdom.


Wednesday 6:00pm - Kickboxing Conditioning

Stef grew up in Los Angeles running, dancing and playing softball. She moved to Santa Cruz to receive her bachelor of science in health sciences at UCSC. As an extension of her desire for physical movement she began teaching KickAerobix at a self-defense and fitness studio where she fell in love with bag work not only for technique but also for energetic release.

In 2013 she received her doctorate in Physical Therapy from UCSF/SFSU and continues to become a human movement science specialist working with individuals with musculoskeletal dysfunction in various settings. She enjoys climbing, yoga, running and of course,
whaling on bags.
