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.

Brenda began her Authentic Pilates teacher training in 2004 after discovering Pilates in 2000. As someone who has been physically active and in pursuit of excellence her entire life, Pilates was the key to her healing success.
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.
Bethany began practicing Pilates as a teenager in Lexington, KY. She has always loved exercise but she quickly realized that Pilates offered more. She loves that Pilates promotes holistic well-being of body and mind and that people of all ages can benefit from it. She appreciates that the Pilates method is gentle on the body yet challenging and full of variety. After attending college in Michigan and settling down in Northville to begin a graduate program, she decided it was time to pursue training to become a certified Pilates instructor.

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 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 is thrilled to start her Pilates teaching journey at the studio that made her fall in love with this method of exercise.
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, Lauren became a new mom and decided to leave corporate life and follow her passion for Pilates!
In 2011, I suffered a running injury as a result of tight hip flexors and weak glutes. I was looking for something to help strengthen and stretch out my overused running muscles while I allowed my body to rest from marathon training. I always found Pilates interesting, but I concentrated so heavily on running that I never fit it into my training schedule. After extensive research, I found myself in my first pilates reformer class. I was immediately hooked. Being a marathon runner and triathlete, I had never realized the importance of core strength to prevent injury and maximize performance. Pilates helped me build the core strength that was necessary to improve my running form and performance. I found myself making more time for pilates and less time for running. I completed a 500 hour instructor certification so I could share the benefits of Pilates. I enjoy helping individuals at all levels of fitness achieve their optimum health goals and live a happy healthy lifestyle. With my background as a licensed massage therapist and my passion for healthy living, I strive to make each workout with my clients challenging, rewarding and safe.
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.
