Kelly has been practicing Pilates for over 12 years, and has been teaching the work since 2003. In 2011, she decided to further her education and expand her offerings to her clients by becoming the first certified barre teacher in the Cda area. Her barre classes immediately “took off”, and since then, she has been the pioneer of barre fitness here in Cda. Kelly’s passion for barre grew immediatley because of the way it intrigued her clients to learn more about their body's mechanics and movement patterns, as well as the many similarities it has to Pilates. In 2012 she founded barre cda which began solely as a barre studio. After working with clients and recognizing the need for Pilates education, she decided to refine the business model she had built to focus heavily on the Pilates method. barre cda was rebranded to be Reform Studio in April 2015.
Kelly fell in love with both Pilates and barre for the many positive changes they have brought to her life and body. She credits this work to the recovery of her 4 pregnancies, and feels stronger now than she did in her early 20s. Her passion is sharing her knowledge with others, by helping them learn about their bodies, and how to move better, with greater ease, and less pain---both at the barre, and in life. She also loves working with the Pre/Post-Natal population. While not at the barre, Kelly spends her time raising her 4 young, and energetic boys

Jeanna was first introduced to Pilates in 2000 while working as a personal trainer in Eugene, Oregon. She started as a student taking privates in a studio on her own three times per week.

Jeanna chose Polestar for her Pilates training and got reformer trained in 2001 in Sacramento, California. Jeanna graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise and Movement Science from the University of Oregon in 1999.

After a big move and a few children later, Jeanna went back for her studio training (which includes all Pilates equipment) again choosing Polestar in 2009 in Kansas City. Jeanna stays current with her membership to the PMA (the Pilates Method Alliance) and keeps up with her continuing education.

Michelle Turkenburg has a BS in dental hygiene and after 28 years decided to take a different path for helping people with their health. She discovered Pilates 6 years ago and became so inspired by it she studied to become a certified instructor in mat, the reformer, and the Cadillac. "Pilates is like no other exercise you will ever do. I have done aerobics, kickboxing, weight lifting, spinning, and other activities but none have given me the awareness of individual muscle use, mind body connection, or feeling of power that Pilates has given me. It is my desire to give my clients the same passion for Pilates that I have found in a fun, knowledgeable atmosphere.”
