A former language and elementary school teacher, Kelly began practicing Pilates in 2017 and completed her mat certification through Pilates Sol in the spring of 2018. She is also a yogi and a Registered Yoga Teacher.
Kelly fell in love with the Pilates method after a series of injuries in running led her to realize that there is so much more involved in running than simply putting one foot in front of the other. Understanding the importance of and developing balance, alignment, strength, and flexibility through yoga and Pilates have helped Kelly transform her body and have enabled her to continue to grow and challenge herself as a distance runner. She is always using her personal Pilates and yoga practices to keep her strong and healthy so that she can continue to achieve her running goals.
Kelly believes that our learning to communicate with our bodies is just like learning a language (by the way, she’s fluent in Portuguese, in addition to her native language, English). She is motivated by the ability to empower people to reclaim their bodies and do more than what was thought possible. She is committed to working with clients to foster body awareness and healthy movement patterns so that people can walk taller, stronger, and happier in order to enjoy doing all of the things that they love in life.
A native of San Diego, California, Kelly has lived for several years in Pittsburgh with her husband and two sons.
