HH | Level 2/3 | Pilates Class


This class is taught by:

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.

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!

Tanya Edwards

Tanya discovered and fell in love with Pilates a few months after moving to Maryland. She attended both Mat and Reformer Pilates classes and was amazed at the “whole body” approach and results… leaving her with a feeling of strength and rejuvenation. She believed in the practice and the results so much that she wanted to share it with others and began teaching Mat Pilates and Yoga classes four and a half years ago. Since then, Tanya participated in and completed the inaugural Potomac Pilates instructor training course and now teaches reformer Pilates classes regularly for Potomac Pilates. She loves the relaxed atmosphere and family feel at the studios with both clients and fellow staff. Tanya especially loves meeting new clients and helping them progress in their Pilates practice. “I am continually amazed at how quickly a client can improve and see results from Pilates. That ‘aha moment’ is such a joy to see and I love being able to help our clients find their just-right challenge.”

Jordan Matosko

Jordan is a teacher for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder. She found that her job, while rewarding, could also be pretty stressful. She was never super into fitness, but was looking for something to help calm her mind and spirit after those long stressful days. Jordan had tried many different workouts and classes, but nothing ever stuck. Then her friend, who was an instructor at the time, recommended trying a class at Potomac Pilates. After that first class, she was hooked. Jordan loved that she had an hour every day where she could unplug, unwind, and focus on getting her mind and body healthy. Her love for Pilates, and the entire Potomac Pilates team never stopped after that. She continued to take classes regularly and decided that she had to join this hardworking, dedicated team! She hopes to help other’s find the amazing release that Pilates has brought to her own life.

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!

Lisa Johnson

I joined the RTR Pilates team in 2011 as a trained Pilates instructor through Balanced Body. I have an extensive background in exercise, dance and yoga with experience teaching students of all ages and levels of ability in both studio and private settings. I also teach structural and functional anatomy for both yoga and pilates teacher trainings and I hold a BFA in Dance from the University of California.

Cathy Sharma

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.

Ayle Jach

Ayle (Ay-la ) is a native Washingtonian that recently moved back to the area after living in Israel for over six years. As a new mom, fitness junkie and Pilates addict, she found that Pilates helped shape her body both before and after pregnancy. She loves the enthusiastic environment of both the clients and instructors at Rock The Reformer and has set the goal to motivate herself as well as others on a daily basis. She earned her Rock The Reformer Instructor Certificate with hopes of helping all of the RTR clients find their Pilates passion. 
*HAPPY HOUR* This class is a great deal! A "Happy Hour" Level 2/3 class is offered at half price (only $20 for drop ins), otherwise it is just like a regular Level 2/3 class.
 
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.
