This class is taught by:

Ashley Walton

 
~ Reformer, Pilates Mat & Barre Instructor
 
Ashley M. Walton is a Saint Joe's grad with a Bachelor Degree in Biology. She spent 10 years testing and preparing blood for hospitals throughout the Tri-state area. Ashley switched from a medical career to a career in which she can prevent the need for medical attention. She went back to school to receive her Associate Degree in Exercise Science, as well as several certifications for personal training.
 
Ashley has been a Certified Personal Trainer for five years. She fell in love with Pilates after being told she had shrunk an inch and a half. Pilates felt better than the chiropractor! Pilates actually helped her gain back her inch and a half! Pilates has helped Ashley's clients and students work through sports injuries and arthritis. New mothers have enjoyed watching their abs get back to normal.
 
Ashley has now been teaching Pilates and Group Exercise for two years. She decided to complete the Peak Pilates Comprehensive program this year to get a Classical understanding of Pilates. She has taught Pilates Reformer, Pilates Mat, Aqua, Silver Sneakers, and Cardio Barre. In January, Ashley will be teaching Pilates Reformer and Pilates Mat here at Twisters.

Stacey Timbo

 
Stacey Timbo has been teaching and practicing Pilates for more than 4 years. She loves Pilates now more than ever because it continues to evolve and allows Stacey to find more power and depth in the work. Her greatest joy comes from watching her clients experience profound changes in their bodies and seeing their excitement when they learn something new. Through her degree in Kinesiology, Stacey discovered Pilates and what it could do for her body. While completing her physical therapy internship with an emphasis in Kinesiology she discovered that Pilates incorporates both her love for general fitness and rehabilitation. Stacey studied under Balance Body by taking their comprehensive training program in Reformer and Mat Pilates. The Balanced Body program that Stacey learned under taught her a comprehensive Pilates training program on the Pilates equipment including mat and Reformer.
 
Stacey values learning and has continued her education through a variety of workshops and conferences through a myriad of different Pilates studios and seminars. While staying true to the principles of Pilates, Stacey integrates other props to assist in advancing movements to improve one’s strength, coordination and balance.
