Level 2/3 | Pilates Class


This class is taught by:

Molly Solebello

Molly fell in love with Pilates immediately after her first class. The variety of movements and emphasis on lengthening and toning are things you can't find in any other type of workout-- that's what keeps her coming back for more!

Fitness and living a healthy lifestyle has always been a part of Molly's life, but she never found something that she was passionate about until Pilates. After just under a year of taking as many classes as possible, the next step was to become an instructor! Her love and passion for Pilates continues to grow every day-- so much so that, in May of 2015 she left the corporate world in her position as a Sales Executive at a local tech company to join Potomac Pilates full time as the Client Advisor. In this role she will continue the growth of current clients and show new clients just how amazing Pilates is!

Sara Pasquini

Sara, a native of Washington, D.C., loves creative movement. As a former acrobatic and rhythmic gymnast, she knows the importance of building and maintaining a very strong core as well as keeping an active body. Sara believes that Pilates should be fun and loves to keep her classes fresh and interesting. She joined Rock the Reformer by Potomac Pilates as an instructor in 2013 after completing the Potomac Pilates Instructor Certification program. After 2 years of hard work and study, she now holds a Comprehensive Pilates Instructor Certification with Balanced Body, Inc.

Before joining the team Sara enjoyed a very successful 19 year career in real estate sales management and investment. She coached Human Relations and Public Speaking classes for the Dale Carnegie Institute for 6 years, traveled to the very far reaches of the world (Myanmar and Mongolia for starters) and managed to squeeze in a summer of teaching English in Ghana, West Africa.

Sara loves live music, dance and travel. She lives in Virginia with her husband, 2 children and 2 dogs.

Alex Ansu

As a lifelong athlete, after taking her first Pilates class at a Rock The Reformer studio, Alex knew that she had found a different kind of athleticism. Pilates helped to improve her running, prevented injury and she found all of that happened within a short time. The machine’s potential for an infinite number of movements and exercises blew Alex’s mind. The rest is history!

Leeor Kelly

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.

Eden Ellis

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!

The Level 2/3 Pilates class is for clients looking to challenge themselves and work at their own pace. The instructor uses effective exercise techniques, offering modifications so that intermediate to advanced clients can work at their own skill level for a tailored workout that is individualized to their needs. This is a great transitional class that is sure to give you a tough workout. If you are ready to push yourself, try this class to sculpt your body, develop strength, and improve your posture.
