Kellie Saylor

Kellie is an elementary school teacher who loves spending time with her family, going camping, going to the beach, and just being active. Riding horses has provided her with an understanding of the importance of core strength, along with body awareness.

After discovering Pilates, she noticed an improved connection with her body that translated into her riding, and also helped alleviate lower back tension and pain.

Following the pregnancy and birth of her son, that understanding went even deeper as she had to surrender to the changes of her own structure, and then gradually "build herself whole" again.

Also, following an unfortunate riding accident, Kellie developed a significant connection to the importance of Foundation Training. The mind-body connection went full circle, and she began sharing that with others.

Kellie resides in Ventura with her husband, their two sons, and their dog Bella. “I love how connected and accomplished I feel after Pilates. It is so empowering, yet relaxing at the same time. It helps relieve stress after a long day at work, took me through my pregnancy and helped me recover post-partum, and keeps me agile and active enough for my energetic boys. I am passionate about it, and it is a great privilege to share that with people.”
