Stacey found pilates about 13 years ago when she befriended a Pilates teacher who convinced her to try a private lesson. After her first lesson she knew that pilates was something very special. It was an amazing workout, but one that left her body feeling alive and capable, not overly sore and exhauseted. She kept going with private lessons and decided to trek into NYC (from Connecticut) to learn how to teach classical pilates with Romana Kryzanowska, her daughter Sari Megia Santo, her granddaighter Daria Pace and the rest of the incredible staff at True Pilates. She also trained with Brooke Slier at her studio re:AB and happily began teaching there. While at re:AB she attended workshops with Mari Winsor, Jay Grimes, and Alisa Wyatt to name a few. Fast forward a few years and Stacey had two babies which inspired her to delve into pre and postpartum pilates, pelvic floor strengthening and diastasis repair with Anne Martens, Julie Tupler and the MUTU system. She also loves TRX and recently attended a Functional Training workshop. Stacey loves to teach all kinds of clients, but has a soft spot for beginners and new Mamas. She is still fairly new to Asheville and SO excited to join the team at Club Pilates!
