Grace Curtis, Instructor

I've always been an active person and have loved finding fun ways to work out. After dancing my whole life, I came to college wanting to find a form of exercise that I was passionate about. After my first Pilates class, I fell in love with it. Pilates has helped me to maintain my flexibility and strengthen and tone my body. It is the best type of excercise for both my physical and mental health. The Haven team has always been so welcoming, helpful, and motivating for me. I cannot wait to share the same with others - I am so excited and thankful to be a part of this team!

Hannah Eddins, Instructor

I discovered my love for fitness after I had surgery and ended up with 2 rods and 21 screws in my back. I turned to group fitness as a way to encourage others to continue their journey and to gain confidence. Over the last 5 years, I have taught everything from Cycle to Bootcamp to Pilates. I recently relocated to Oxford from NYC where I was teaching a Pilates inspired workout. My super power is talking extremely fast and I’m often called the energizer bunny because I never run out of energy!

Riley Kate Fair, Instructor

After years of gymnastics and cheerleading, I have learned the importance of maintaining flexibility with strength. Pilates has been the best thing to keep me toned and flexible after moving on from competitive sports. It combines both strengthening workouts as well as deep stretching in a fun and challenging way. I believe physical exercise is key to keeping both mind and body balanced. I have practiced Pilates at Haven Studio in Tupelo for years and am so excited to be teaching in Oxford!

Angela Manley, Instructor

I have always been active and have always enjoyed exercising, mostly running for over 20 years. I attended my first Pilates class twelve years ago and quickly realized it was an ideal cross training regimen to strengthen and stretch my body, as well as focus my mind. A consistent Pilates practice has allowed me to maintain the degree of flexibility and strength essential for running longer distances. As Pilates has helped me, I want to guide others to achieve improved mobility, strength, and balance. I'm excited to be part of the Haven studio team and look forward to being part of our clients’ fitness journeys.

Sallie Kate Ray, Instructor

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.

Dakin Reed, Instructor

I began my Pilates journey for the physical benefits of core strength and long lean lines, but quickly became obsessed with the mental clarity and ease it gives me every day. Pilates is all about the mind body connection and I love incorporating breath-work into my classes. 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 hope my class is empowering, grounding, and elevating and I can’t wait to see you in the space!

Ashley Runnels, Instructor

Exercise has been part of my daily life as far back as I can remember. Competitive horseback riding, cheerleading, and dance were all things I grew up doing. When moving to Oxford, I knew I needed to find a new form of exercise that worked for me. I began taking Pilates classes and was hooked!  The mental and physical strength you gain from Pilates is one of the many reasons why I love it. Each class is one to look forward to because it will be a fun way to stretch, exercise, and clear your mind. I hope to guide each individual through fun yet challenging workouts and I am so excited to join Haven Studio!

Emma Schwieger, Instructor

As a former college volleyball player - and a very competitive one - I began Pilates to build strength, improve flexibility, and overcome an injury that ultimately led to me having to leave the sport. My new love for Pilates has not only enabled me to elevate my shoulder injury, it has given me the confidence and passion to help others meet their goals as well. After taking my first week of Pilates classes, I knew I would never get tired of it. I am so excited to join the Oxford team!

Vivi Spotswood, Instructor

After a back injury ended my competitive riding career, I struggled with my identity and thought I had lost my only outlet in life. I have a passion for movement and wellness and felt it had been taken from me in a single moment. However, I discovered Pilates and found my new outlet - a bridge between mind and body which I believe is key to a fulfilling and rewarding life. I hope to provide a class that challenges individuals to push their bodies in a fun and enjoyable way! I am beyond excited to join the team at Haven Studio!
