Michelle Deer- Owner, Comprehensive Pilates Instructor
My love of Pilates began with my first class and has grown into becoming a Comprehensive Pilates Instructor. I was looking for a way to strengthen my body and what I found with Pilates is the ability to strengthen with control while gaining flexibility. I had NO idea a body could move in such a way. In January 2013 when offered the chance to help others I quickly jumped at the opportunity and started my training to become a Pilates Instructor. In March 2014, I passed my practical exam and was awarded my Comprehensive certificate.MY ultimate Pilates goal is to become a team trainer.
I love working with Athletes, but also enjoy post rehab work helping those recovering from injuries. There is no better feeling then watching a client walk without pain, no longer having the fear of falling because their balance is off, or going up and down stairs with no knee trouble.
In addition to my comprehensive certification, I also bring with me certificates in BioCored, Arcus, Anatomy in 3D, Yoga Fit and Neuro Movement. I’ve attended The McEntire Summit specifically for Golf, completed courses in Osteoporosis, and beginner/advanced Jump Board, and Core Align.
Koren Farmer- Ballet and Pilates Trainer
Koren started dancing at a young age, attending Connie's School of Dance in Jackson. After her family relocated to Howell Michigan, she attend Glenn's school of Dance and advanced through grade 2 of Cecchetti theory. After returning to Jackson for college Koren danced one final year with Connie's School of Dance but injured her knee, presumably ending any future in dance. A few years later she connected with Jackson School of the Arts and her teaching career began under the guidance of Ginger McNetton. Starting as an assistant, within 7 years Koren advanced to an instructor and was the teacher for the pilot year of JSA Junior and Senior companies. Her passion comes from the joy dance brings to others, and to help them understand how to do ballet with the proper muscles, avoiding injury.
