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.

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!

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!

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!

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.

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.

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!

For the past 3 years, I've been taking my wellness journey beyond high school cheerleading. I have always been a health and fitness nut on my own merit, but I felt that I needed to take my passion to the reformer. After a year of Pilates classes, I felt that becoming an instructor is my calling! Pilates has kept me feeling serene, strong, and flexible. I have seen the benefits, not only physically, but also mentally within myself and others in the Pilates community. I've realized that the gift of mental and physical strength is so important in our day to day lives. With the focus on sculpting, lengthening, and toning, Pilates can leave everyone feeling empowered and renewed. Pilates has given me a sense of fulfillment, and I am so excited to share my passion with everyone in my classes at Haven Studio!
