Over the last several years she spent 100’s of hours practicing Pilates, learning the techniques and philosophies of this type of exercise program. As she started to see the difference it made in her body, and to those she was practicing with, she realized what a great benefit Pilates can bring to everyone – no matter what age. An inquisitive client, always asking questions during classes to better understand the form or intention of the movement, it was only a matter of time before she herself would become an instructor. Kelley completed her Pilates Sports Center Teacher Training Program in 2012. Knowing all too well the challenges and limitations the body can present, Kelley makes every effort to understand her clients’ bodies and what their needs and goals are.

Lisa Lippincott
Gong Meditation
A life-changing event grounded Lisa from her passion of flying jets. But as most misfortunate happenings, it too, was a gift in disguise. She learned to fly with her Gong, finding that “sweet spot” once again healing herself, and others. She shares this gift for those who are interested. I became One with All.
This passion lead me into the most wonderful experience flying airplanes, and in the end of my 25 year career, flying the fastest passenger jet in the
After all the tests, many, and no concrete diagnosis other than vestibular migraines, fibromyalgia, and areotoxins. No remedies. I felt doomed. I started posting spiritual Face Book photos, also started groups in my home. I couldn’t go out. I started a book study group in my home, The Way to Mastery. From this study group, spiritual postings that I was attracted to on FB, my soul was trying to communicate with me. I had a deep knowing the answer for my healing would come to the surface…One day strongly and suddenly it came to me…. Vibration!
Vibration is the answer, it is working!!!

So, today,I fly on the ground, I am in the moment, and am back with my Soul’s Song!
‘Somehow the fact that our spirit, thoughts, and emotions are all composed of energy that vibrates at different frequencies was overlooked in the past. We are transceivers as we both send and receive energy information.
