Stephanie Peterson Jones began taking Pilates lessons in 1998, one year after having back surgery. She was immediately hooked by the strength, flexibility and balance she achieved and has been devoted to the Pilates Method ever since. She received her comprehensive Pilates certification from the Pilates Center in Boulder, CO in 2001, after which she opened the Pilates Studio of Fairfield in CT. She continued her Pilates education with Kathy Grant, Cara Reeser, Deborah Lessen, Blossom Leilani Crawford, Irene Down and many others. She also completed the Pilates Center’s Masters Program and became certified by the Pilates Method Alliance. After selling the studio in 2011, she continued to work there until moving to Asheville in the fall of 2014. When not teaching or practicing Pilates, Stephanie loves to hike with her pup Rio. She also is an illustrator and designer of children’s books and decorative art. Stephanie enjoys working with all types of clients, especially those who want to maintain strength, mobility and flexibility throughout their lives. She is excited to be a part of the Club Pilates community in Western North Carolina.

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!
