Kisha Quinn

After having a child in 2002, Kisha began practicing Pilates as a way of getting back to her pre-pregnancy body. Within months, she was hooked, and it quickly became her obsession. In 2014, when she was laid off, Kisha decided it was time to follow her passion, and began her teacher training program. Upon completing the 500 hour comprehensive training, she began working at several studios in the metro area as a way to learn, which has made her a well rounded instructor. Kisha is also a Barre Intensity Certified instructor.

Ashley Flotkoetter

Ashley found Pilates after searching for a form of exercise she actually enjoyed after having her 3rd son. She tried Warehouse Pilates only a couple weeks after they opened for business in 2016 and it didn’t take long for her to realize how beneficial Pilates was for her body, but also her mind. She has been a regular around Warehouse Pilates ever since. Ashley loves being a part of the studio that made her fall in love with this method of movement.

Ashley was certified at Warehouse Pilates in 2020 and loves teaching a creative, challenging class.

Caroline Deacon

In 2016, Caroline enrolled in a Pilates mat class taught by our very own, Brenda Freeman. Ever since that class, Caroline has been hooked.  She loves how Pilates keeps her strong and she is looking forward to teaching others and helping them to stay strong and to keep them moving.



Brittany Pratt

Brittany discovered Pilates in 2014, while in search of a way to gain core strength and reverse the negative effects of her desk job… she was immediately hooked. In 2017, she began a 450 hour comprehensive Pilates Instructor training program and was able to be trained by her own mentors at Warehouse Pilates. This helped groom her into a well-rounded, creative instructor with an ability to design workouts that are both fun and challenging for all levels. Brittany is a firm believer in the mind, body, and soul connection and takes great satisfaction in helping clients translate this into their everyday lives.

Teaching Style: Brittany’s specialty is helping people connect to their deep core muscles. She teaches classical Pilates mixed with an athletic contemporary approach, and is all about connecting the mind and body with movement.

Lauren Williams

Lauren discovered Pilates in 2015 and immediately fell in love. Growing up an athlete, she desired an active lifestyle. Once she completed her bachelor’s degree and transitioned to a corporate job, she was looking for something that provided a challenge, yet was maintainable. Pilates not only helped Lauren find the work out she was craving, but it also became a form of stress relief from the demands of corporate life.  Recently, a new mom, Lauren decided to leave corporate life and follow her passion for Pilates!

Teaching Style: Lauren’s teaching style is a hybrid of traditional Pilates infused with athletic movements. You are sure to get your heart rate going while also learning how to connect and engage your smaller and supportive muscles.

Jill Denk

Jill is a US Air Force veteran, a wife and a mom to three boys. Jill is also a true believer in pilates and its ability to heal and transform. After 3 c-sections within 4 years left her with chronic lower back pain, Jill found that the traditional workout choices of high impact aerobics were only making the situation worse. She turned to Pilates to strengthen her core. The focus on core strength improved the situation within weeks and she has never looked back! Jill feels that the mental focus, discipline, and strength that pilates demands reminds her of her college days as a springboard diver. She also appreciates the many cross-training benefits it brings to other sports and everyday activities and loves to share those benefits with clients.

Michelle Waranoski

With a long history of dance behind her, Michelle began  group fitness career over 30 years ago. This parlayed neatly into a passion for barre and Pilates.

Jessica K

Jessica found her love of Pilates in 2021, while searching for an addition to her cardio and strength training routine. She wanted something effective, yet low impact, that she could practice well into her future. On her search, she read a quote by Joseph Pilates stating ” You will feel better in ten sessions, look better in twenty sessions, and have a completely new body in thirty sessions”. So, she decided to put it to the test. After her first session at Warehouse Pilates, she was hooked. Having a background in dance and choreography, Pilates just felt natural. Just a couple months later, she was a firm believer. Her body had physically changed, and she felt a stronger mind-body connection. In February of 2023, Jessica completed her teaching certification, so she could share the benefits of Pilates with others. 
Teaching Style: Jessica strives to create a fun and energizing atmosphere, incorporating dynamic athletic flows, that will challenge even the most seasoned clientele.

A self-described wearer of many hats, Heather’s favorite roles are wife and mother. She has four adult children and one amazing daughter in law. On a whim Heather tried Pilates at Warehouse Pilates in late 2019. She was immediately hooked. Heather found Pilates offered exactly what her body needed as it matured, providing both strength and flexibility. In 2023 she went through teacher training at Warehouse Pilates and received her certification. Her favorite class is 20-20-20 but she loves Classic Mat Pilates as well as Reformer.

Michelle Waranoski

Michelle’s interest in fitness was inspired by 15+ years of ballet practice and a love of dance that followed her into adulthood. She has been a AFAA certified group fitness teacher, including cycling, since 1991, and became a student of Lotte Berk inspired exercise in 2004. Over the course of becoming a certified Pilates reformer/equipment teacher, she gained an abundance of knowledge in both anatomy and the study of mechanics of body movements. With Michelle’s rich history in choreography and fitness instruction combined with her extensive background in anatomy and kinesiology, owning a Dailey Method seemed to be a natural fit . Her experience marries well with Warehouse Pilates approach toward exercise and fitness. Michelle has numerous certificates in exercise and nutrition and is always searching to learn more. In her spare time Michelle enjoys spending time with her daughter and husband. When they aren’t around to entertain, bourbon and bravo tv make a great stand in.
