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.

Kelly Bielby

 
After 15 successful years in nonprofit management, Kelly joins the team at Twisters to teach Pilates Mat, Reformer and other Pilates Equipment Classes. Kelly began studying Pilates after an injury limited her range of motion and stability. Kelly loves how Pilates is grounded in alignment and it can lead to better posture, balance, muscle tone and overall body strength.
 
Kelly specializes in using the classical Pilates method as a way to exercise safely in proper form, prevent or help heal from injury and correct imbalances that can result from sitting for long periods. She believes a regular practice of Pilates informs your body awareness allowing for “spontaneous zest and pleasure,” as Joe Pilates himself said. Throughout her journey as a teacher, Kelly is continually amazed and inspired by the work that Pilates can accomplish for everyone and how the exercises can be practiced during all stages of life. Kelly truly believes all persons are capable of moving in a healthy and sustainable way given the opportunity.
 
Kelly is committed to creating strong relationships with clients. She is also available for private instruction sessions. Please contact the studio to arrange.
All Levels Welcome

 
All Level classes are designed for students with previous Pilates Mat experience. These classes offer a vigorous workout and incorporate a greater variety of challenging exercises than Level I/II Classes.
 
 
Pilates Mat is a group exercise class that uses basic equipment such as a Pilates ring, resistance band, or weighted balls. These exercises help strengthen the body’s core (3 dimensionally) by developing pelvic and scapula stability and abdominal control using focused breathing patterns. The main fitness goals of Pilates Mat include improved flexibility, muscle tone, body balance, spinal support, low back health, and body-mind awareness. 
 
 
Pilates Mat classes are a great way to get strengthen your yoga practice or cross train for any other physical activity.
