Level 2/3 | Pilates Class


This class is taught by:

Shelley Stuart

A lifelong athlete, Maryland native, avid traveler, outdoor enthusiast, dog lover, mom of three and loyal client to RTR from the beginning, Shelley found that Pilates complements her active lifestyle. Pilates increases core strength, improves muscle imbalances, flexibility and can transform a body from bulky to long and lean....who cannot benefit from all of that?! Shelley's love of Pilates led her to complete Rock The Reformer Pilates instructor training. She hopes to help clients find their Pilates passion (and powerhouse!) while attending one of her classes.

Naomi Hanfling

Naomi walked out of her first Pilates class and realized she had found something that she was truly excited about even though she was sore where she didn't know muscles existed. Ever since then she's been an avid RTR Pilates client, and now instructor. Originally from Portland, OR, Naomi has been in DC since 2010 and loves the city. After graduating from American University she now works in federal consulting and spends her free time exploring the DC restaurant scene, with friends and, of course, at Pilates!

Leeor Pilo

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.

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!

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!

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.
