Leeor's passion for Pilates began the moment she looped up for her first class. The emphasis on muscle lengthening and core provided a challenging workout that she couldn't get enough of, she was hooked! Leeor trained with RTR Pilates Training in Fall 2013 and fell in love with Pilates even more. So much so, that in May of 2014 she left the corporate world to join RTR Pilates full time as the Director of Instructor Development. In fall 2017 she trained with STOTT Pilates as well to further develop her skills.
Inspiring others to become Pilates instructors and overseeing the on-boarding process brings Leeor happiness and increases her drive to become a strong instructor in the class room and an even stronger trainer for her colleagues.
When she is not training instructors or in the class room you can find her on 14th St. listening to local music, making jewelry for her company Vylet Collections, or at home curled up with her cat.
Cathy discovered Pilates as a way to improve her strength and flexibility. After years spent weight training, playing golf, downhill skiing and practicing Tae Kwon Do, she loved the way Pilates helped improve her knee and hip injuries and improve her muscle strength while promoting balance and alignment. But more importantly, she discovered that Pilates is fun!
Trained in mat and reformer through Balanced Body and a member of the Pilates Method Alliance, Cathy loves teaching ALL levels of Pilates because of the results it provides as well as the way it connects the mind and body. Cathy has a Master’s degree in speech/language pathology and loves to spend time with her husband, three children and three dogs at their home in Potomac.

Using the skills I have learned from being a Rock The Reformer client first and certified thru Balanced Body, I get to help clients discover what they are truly capable of physically and mentally. The longest and most important relationship we have during our lives is the one with our mind and body, Pilates is designed to bring both together to help us focus on being present in the moment. One of the crazy blessings in having emergency open heart surgery is how Pilates had kept me in shape before and helped me recuperate quickly after. It makes me so happy when a client achieves their true potential and has that beautiful “A-ha” moment in understanding what Pilates has done for them. I am so lucky to be a part of their journey!
