Kelsey, a native Memphian, took her first yoga class on a whim & was immediately drawn in by the practice. She has always enjoyed fitness as a way to relieve stress, but yoga brought a whole new element- mind and body connection- which helped her grow on and off the mat. With every class, she continued to fall more in love with yoga while building a strong home practice. She completed her 200 hour certification at Asheville Yoga Center. Kelsey practices all styles of yoga, but particularly enjoys teaching upbeat vinyasa flows that focus on staying connected to the breath while exploring different transitions and postures. Kelsey's students leave her classes feeling strong and encouraged.

Cait is a North Carolina native and Mom to 4 with an extensive and diverse exercise background. From competitive swimming as a child to rowing as a varsity collegiate athlete to running and weight lifting as a young adult, it wasn't until she found Pilates that she knew she'd found something she could do for life. Often times when we exercise we fail at strengthening all of the little supporting muscles. I love Pilates because it works ALL of the muscles I need for life while also encouraging the mind, body connection that's vital for health in so many other areas.'Cait discovered Pilates and its benefits nearly 20 years ago and has done Mat, Cadillac and Reformer based practice both here and across the pond in London, England where she lived for 8 years until moving to Memphis 18 months ago. Along with her years of Pilates experience Cait has degrees in Exercise Sports Science and Nursing. She's looking forward to pairing that extensive medical and anatomical knowledge with her Pilates training to create classes that burn and tone but also align and educate to keep you safe, healthy and strong!

Her second certification was completed in 2017 with Michele Mallory and Amy Morse at DwiPada Yoga.
