This class is taught by:

Cyndy Creighton

Cyndy started her pilates journey in 2005 and was amazed at how her body felt and changed. She knew right away that she wanted to become an instructor and help others discover this work. After taking classes with various instructors for 5 years, she received her Mat certification in 2010 through Body Works Pilates Studio. In 2011, she took the Fletcher Intensive becoming certified to teach Barrework™, Towelwork® and Floorwork®. Then in 2012 took the Fletcher comprehensive program and is fully certified to teach Mat and Equipment classes. Pilates has changed her body and improved her low back issues. Cyndy is grateful for the opportunity to assist others to awaken their own abilities and deepen their mind body awareness. She continues to learn by attending conferences and workshops. In her personal time, she enjoys camping, hiking and standup paddle boarding with her dog.

Kara Botelho

Kara became interested in pilates in the mid 2000’s after a hip and back injury that left permanent spinal instability. When she discovered that the best way to keep her back in health was pilates, she became passionate and enthusiastic about it! A life long sports competitor and enthusiast, Kara has found that pilates has both increased her strength and stamina, as well as improved her muscle symmetry, and believes that it can do the same for everyone. Kara also works as a certified personal trainer, and as such, is dedicated to helping people achieve their true physical potential through fitness.
Pilates Equipment classes use the Universal Reformer, the Cadillac, and the Chair. This class is appropriate for beginners and for those with previous pilates experience who still want to work at a safe pace. Modifications can easily be given to make the exercises more gentle or more vigorous.
