See the Studio
The Studio is, in a word, vibey. We lovingly renovated our space in Emory Village with a mod aesthetic and an energetic and earthy color palette. You’ll love the tambour walls, open ceilings, and arch design details.
We have a large open studio area for our group classes and enclosed areas for our private training sessions.
All spaces include top-of-the-line reformer machines. You’ll feel inspired as soon as you walk through the doors.
Meet the Team
Kelly - Owner
Kelly fell in love with Pilates in her 20’s, but it wasn’t until she had two kids that she really understood the therapeutic affect it can have as well. Pilates helped reconnect her mind and body postpartum. It gave strength and ease to her daily movements and inspired her to want to share this experience with other women who, at times, feel like strangers in their own bodies. She also wanted to create a space for clients to feel welcome and at ease while connecting to their bodies. Many of the studios she attended in Atlanta felt very cold or unwelcoming to “non-ideal” body types. She believes everyone deserves a positive movement experience and that class should be an escape from any stress or negativity. Kelly has been in marketing for 18 years and was excited to combine her work experience with her passion. You’ll see her at the front desk and also getting certified through Polestar.

Amanda has been passionate about and practicing both mat and reformer Pilates for years. She realized the true value of pilates when she had her children. From prenatal to postpartum, pilates was able to help her feel strong and connected to her mind and body. After losing her job in hospitality due to the pandemic, she decided to make lemonade and invest in herself to become a certified Pilates instructor. Now she is able to combine both her love of Pilates and her passion of working with people. Amanda believes that no matter what exercise you are doing, it is beneficial to understand how to connect with your body so you can maintain the proper form for effective results. “There’s nothing I enjoy more than working with beginners – there’s something about seeing someone try something new and falling in love with it. I don’t want people to be intimidated by Pilates or the reformer machine. You don’t have to already be fit to participate! We should always celebrate trying something new!”
Stormi began her Pilates journey in 2017 intrigued by these funky apparatuses and promised benefits of this type of movement. She quickly became hooked feeling the increased strength in her body and was amazed by her ability to focus, finally staying out of her own head during exercise. As a child psychologist working with neurodiverse toddlers, this also allowed her to keep better pace with the physical demands of play with tiny tots. In 2020, Stormi began teacher training intent on deepening her own practice but fell in love with the idea of spreading the joy of Pilates to others. She completed her certification in 2021. When she’s not on the reformer next to you, you’ll see Stormi teaching occasional classes. Her focus is on providing a fun and welcoming environment where clients leave feeling longer, stronger, and with a greater appreciation of what their brains and bodies can do!

I am originally from a small town in Northern Wisconsin. I started my journey in the fitness industry in 2019 getting my personal training certification and health and wellness diploma. I moved to Georgia right after Covid in May 2020, that’s when I started taking my sister’s Pilates classes. I realized the benefits Pilates has for people with injuries and how supplementing it with strength training has soo many positive benefits. I jumped right into the teacher training. I have been teaching Pilates for almost two years (April 2021) now and I love working with people from all walks of life. Working on improving individuals balance, posture and core strength & stability. I love making my classes flow & challenging!
