Cherie Stolz, Studio Owner/Instructor
Cherie took her first Pilates class as a means of stress relief from a busy career in Human Resources.
Not only did she find that stress relief she was seeking, but she felt great! Pilates was making her
stronger, improving her posture, body awareness and even self confidence. She loved the way it made
her feel so much that she decided that she wanted to help others feel the benefits of Pilates as well.
Cherie was certified to teach the Pilates method by Body Arts and Science Internation (BASI) in 2003.
She works with a wide range of clientele, from golfer, tennis players and equestrians to business
professionals and retirees. Her education includes a B.A. in Political Science and Masters in Business
Administration. Cherie is a member of The Pilates Method Alliance (PMA) and continues to develop her
knowledge and skills through continuing education workshops with leaders in the Pilates industry.

Clients often have many ‘aha’ moments when discovering the ability to consciously chose the appropriate
muscle for each specific movement. Mindy’s passion for this work is fueled by these moments. Her own

Pilates was developed over 80 years ago by a man named Joseph H. Pilates. Originally called
"Contrology" by Mr. Pilates, this method of mind-body exercise involves the strengthening and stretching
of the muscles of the whole body creating profound results including improved muscle tone without adding
bulk, improved posture, flexibility, body awareness, balance, coordination and muscle symmetry.
The guiding principles of Pilates include Breath, Control, Awareness, Concentration, Precision, Balance,
Centering, and Flow.
"Pilates is designed to give you suppleness, natural grace, and skill that will be unmistakably reflected in the
way you walk, in the way you play, and in the way you work." ~ J. Pilates
