Mary has been teaching Yoga at Pilates Plus for over 6 years.  She became inspired to teach yoga after developing her own practice and became certified to teach through Yoga Fit.  Her training has included Yoga Fit levels I and II in addition of completion of Anusara Yoga training workshops with Mitchel Bleier and Baptise Power Vinyasa Yoga workshops with Baron Baptiste.  Mary is a full time resource teacher for grades 7-12 in the Rochester City School District and enjoys shopping, hiking, biking and traveling in her spare time.

Kyleigh began practicing Pilates in 2011 after graduating from Hobart and William Smith Colleges.  From HWS, she received a Bachelor of Arts Degree, with Cum Laude recognition, in Media & Society.  The mind-body connection associated with the Pilates method resonated with Kyleigh and inspired her to make the commitment to the Teacher Education Program at Pilates Plus. Kyleigh is certified in classical Pilates full mat/apparatus levels I-V.   Kyleigh’s “Aha Moment” occurred when she understood the significance of relying on her “powerhouse” both inside and outside of the studio. Kyleigh has overcome life- long postural challenges through pilates practice and is a believer in Joseph Pilates premise that “ in ten sessions you feel better, in 20 sessions you will look better and in 30 sessions you will have a completely new body.”  Kyleigh loves seeing how Pilates brings her clients joy as they gain awareness of their bodies and experience the grace, energy and vitality that is transformative through pilates practice.
