Marie Gibb,  NCPT, Senior Pilates Instructor

Marie personally understands how compromising physical injuries can be especially for athletes. "Active people don't want to stop doing what they enjoy, they want to keep moving. My goal is to get people back to doing what they love & loving what they do even more, while fine tuning their movement skill set." 
      Over the years, she has logged thousands of miles as an accomplished marathoner & half-marathoner, & is personally familiar with the toll sports can take on a body. "Having a deep knowledge of the Pilates method then would have prevented many of my poor movement patterns & subsequent injuries." 
     The life altering benefits of Pilates came in the most unexpected way. In 2006, her daughter (Haley) was recovering from a serious surgery. Under the care of a cutting-edge Physical Therapy group, the Pilates reformer was used as part of Haley's rehabilitation. "My immense gratitude for the help the Pilates method offered Haley then guided me on this most rewarding career path; learning to teach others to move, feel, & perform better in their own bodies. I see myself as a solutions provider for whole-body wellness."
Marie is trained through the internationally recognized organization of Balanced Body as a Comprehensive Pilates Instructor & is also a Pre/Postnatal Pilates Specialist through The Center for Women's Fitness. Her earlier career path comprises over two decades in healthcare, specializing primarily in cardiovascular care. When she is out of the studio, you will find her around the community passionately educating others on the healing properties of Nature's pure & potent essential oils.

Haley Gibb,  NCPT, Senior Pilates Instructor

Haley finds the best part of teaching Pilates comes from seeing her clients build optimal strength, balance & flexibility that they can immediately incorporate into their daily living. She especially loves challenging even the most accomplished athletes with Pilates as a method of disciplined cross training... "you can never have enough cross stabilization & Mind+Body+Spirit connection to support your active lifestyle & varied sports." She will undoubtedly maximize your body potential through safe, effective, exhilarating & motivating movement experiences.
      Haley is deeply committed to working with special client populations that encompass active agers, post-rehabilitative clients & multi-sport enthusiasts of all ages. She is comprehensively trained on all Pilates equipment including CoreAlign, all through Balanced Body & is also a National Certified Pilates Teacher. Haley received her Bachelor's degree in Sociology & Anthropology at Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. To deepen her knowledge of the Pilates method, Haley spent nearly four months apprenticing under Katrina Foe, a second-generation Pilates Master Instructor in Scottsdale, Arizona. Haley's approach & teaching style has been further inspired & largely influenced by other renowned Master Instructors including, Lisa Graham at Agile Monkey & Tom McCook at Center of Balance.

"I came to Pilates through somewhat unusual circumstances. Following brain & spinal surgery in 2006, I spent most of my Physical Therapy sessions on the Pilates Reformer. The experience was transformative! Upgrading my functional movement patterns & developing a more mindful approach to my physical fitness has since increased my stamina, heightened my lifestyle consciousness & left me stronger than ever."

Haley has passionately served our local community with form + function PILATES since 2011 & when she's not teaching is an exceptional educator on natural wellness for living life with abundance with
dōTERRA Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils.

"Most of all, we want to be a transformational element in the lives of our clients!"
