Throughout my life physical fitness has always been important to me. I originally discovered Barre in 2010 and was immediately hooked. Until Barre, I had never realized that such small movements could make such a big impact. When my son was just a few months away from starting school, I started looking at the prospect of all of the classes I would be able to take and realized it was time to venture on to the next step! After teaching Barre, I realized that I had a desire to learn more - which is why I chose to also become certified in both Spin and Pilates. I’m so excited to share my passion for each of these modalities of exercise with you!

Dalyn Reynolds, Director of Marketing + Social Media

Overall health and wellness has always been very important to me. I started taking Pilates classes in college at MSU, and fell in love with the way it made me feel.  I began my career in healthcare and wellness in 2019 as an exercise physiologist and cardio fitness instructor. Later that year I began teaching at a studio in Starkville, then with the studio’s second location in Jackson  in 2020 after moving to begin nursing school at UMMC. As a registered nurse as well as an exercise physiologist, I understand the impact and importance that purposeful movement can have on the body. I cannot wait to encourage you and inspire you to do new, hard, and fun things with your body!

From back surgery to bilateral hip replacement surgeries, the Pilates Reformer has helped me recover and live life to the fullest in my 70’s. Safe and supportive, it offers resistance and assistance at the same time.  The Reformer yields tangible results to get you back on track toward your goals.  As a retired nurse, I understand the value of building a foundation of strength, flexibility, and stability for all levels and ages.  You will see and feel the difference!

Having discovered the benefits of regular exercise in my teens, I earned my AFAA group fitness certification while in college. Once teaching, I continued to study, earning certifications in Step Aerobics, Weight Training, and Indoor Cycling. Several years later, looking for a change of pace, I discovered Hot Yoga and and was hooked!  Upon receiving my Yoga certification, I began teaching at Haven Studio, where I discovered BTBC and Pilates. Now, to create the most magical practice, I incorporate Yoga, BTBC, Spin Fusion, and the Pilates Reformer into most every week. I believe this variety is the ultimate combo to stay healthy, balanced, strong, and sane!

I have always been interested in physical movement. With a background in dance and gymnastics, to discovering weight training, circuit training, and Crossfit, it is clear to me that health and fitness are an important part of a happy life. I took my first Yoga class six years ago and fell in love with the practice. Syncing body, breath, and mind is beautiful to me, and I believe Yoga can benefit everyone. I hope to share with students the ability to find happiness and freedom within their own bodies.

Andi Hildenbrand

As a former educator, teaching and inspiring others has always been so meaningful to me. My body began to ache after years of running - specifically my feet and hips - and I decided to give Yoga a try. From the very first class, I not only sensed my body was feeling stronger, but my mind began to calm. Yoga combines the gift of breath with movement, and as my family will tell you, it has been life changing for me. Along my Yoga journey, I discovered a passion for Pilates. I believe the two practices complement each other in every way. My goal as an instructor is to inspire my students to find their own strength in body and mind, and beautiful peace and calm from within.

As a former collegiate athlete, ballet dancer, tennis player, and cheerleader, fitness has always played a significant role in my life. I am originally from Kingsport, Tennessee and was recruited by Ole Miss to play women’s golf. I fell in love with Mississippi and have never left. In 2017, Marci gave me an opportunity for which I will always be grateful. Teaching Barre is the perfect balance of grace and strength. My goal is to create a challenging and fun workout that will efficiently and safely sculpt strong, healthy, beautiful bodies and minds. In 2021, I began my Pilates Reformer training and immediately fell in love with the variety and challenge of the Reformer. My passion is to challenge each person to reach their personal fitness goals and become the best version of themselves!

My parents always instilled the importance of exercising and its effect on my mental and physical health. I grew up involved in dance, show choir, and cheerleading, and it evolved to wanting to stay active and healthy. I first attended BTBC in January 2019 where Corrie taught me a lot about health, wellness, and loving my body. I’m excited to begin teaching classes at Haven and show everyone what BTBC has taught me! My focus is on a combination of strength training and cardio - I love how these classes make me feel and get me energized for the day ahead. I hope to bring that same energy and experience to my students!

Having fallen in love with Barre and Pilates Reformer classes at Haven Studio, I’ve been a devotee since the beginning.  As a person with hip and knee issues, movement is a necessity for me.  The low impact workouts are therapeutic and gentle, yet work muscles you never knew you had!  I leave each class feeling challenged and refreshed - that’s why I’m so excited to be a part of the Haven team teaching both Restorative and full Pilates Reformer classes in Tupelo and Oxford.

Physical fitness and overall wellness have always been important to me, and I’m no stranger to any and all traditional forms of exercise. However, it wasn’t until I discovered reformer pilates while studying at MSU that I felt like I had really found my niche. The reformer completely reshaped my body and my mentality towards physical wellness as a whole. I was certified in 2013 and began instructing during my junior year at Mississippi State. I taught for 2 years at Midtown Pilates in Starkville, MS and 1 year at Pilates Studio of Ridgeland in Ridgeland, MS. I am thrilled to now have the opportunity to share my love for the reformer and all that the practice has to offer with everyone here at Haven Studio!

I began my Pilates journey 3 years ago for the physical benefits of core strength and long lean lines, but quickly became obsessed with the mental clarity and ease it gives me everyday. Pilates is all about the mind body connection. Not only will we work our bodies to strengthen, lengthen, and tone, but our minds and personal energies will be met with challenging and educational opportunities as well. I love incorporating breath-work into my classes while also focusing on specific muscles and moves to really sculpt our bodies in the most beneficial way. I hope my class is empowering, grounding, and elevating and I can’t wait to see you in the space!

I was introduced to Yoga at a very young age and immediately fell in love. As I journeyed and explored my personal practice, I knew there was nothing else I would rather do with my life. Yet with my lifestyle focused on health and wellness, I began to venture out and quickly discovered my love for Reformer Pilates. With the combination of Yoga and Pilates, I hope to introduce my clients to not only the physical strength of the body, but also the calmness and serenity that I have found for myself.

Janet Ventura

I'm a huge believer in doing what you love and you will never work a day in your life! Growing up in a home full of girls, I was inspired to follow a path in the beauty industry. After obtaining my Cosmetology license in 2013, I found myself drawn to makeup and hairstyling. However, after many years of hand and foot massage during manicures/pedicures, I was encouraged by clients to pursue my license in Massage Therapy. It is such a rewarding profession to be able to help my clients look and feel their absolute best - their smiles and confidence resulting from my work is what motivates me.

My passion for massage therapy, and its transformative benefits, began when I started experiencing pain and fatigue from running cross country during high school. The benefits that I received from massage therapy allowed me to see it as a wellness tool rather than a luxury service.  Throughout my journey to become a massage therapist, I discovered Pilates and appreciate the connection between these two practices.  I believe self-care is a must in today’s busy world; regular bodywork and the reformer are vital to experiencing both mental and physical wellness.
