With her background in dance and kinesiology she has integrated her passion for movement into her Pilates teaching. She sees Pilates as a way to build a strong foundation to excel at any movement and has used Pilates herself to prevent and recover from injuries. With her Classical Pilates training, Stephanie uses the system of Pilates with her clients to adapt to each unique body to ensure a safe and effective workout. Stephanie hopes her sessions are fun, safe, and work toward individual goals. She feels accomplished when her clients leave feeling sweaty!

A challenging class meant for those transitioning from Basic to Intermediate Reformer and Tower.
A fun mat workout for 13-18 year olds that focuses on posture and building core strength and flexibility. Props are used to assist and correct. Music is played in this class.
This class combines intermediate exercises on the Reformer at a faster pace, with intermediate exercises on the Mat, Tower, and Barrels.
Many new exercises are added on at this level. Inversions are introduced, and greater mobility in the spine, as well as the other joints, is the focus.
