A high-touch mentoring program for Pilates instructors
Office Hours White Logo
I have been lucky to be teaching for three decades. One thing I am sure about is my passion for continuing education. We never stop learning, whether you are just starting your education and teaching journey, preparing for your final exams, or starting to teach in our fast-growing industry. I am here to help you by providing a community of support. I will continue to guide you with the education and mentorship to become a confident leader.


Here are some of the fun topics we will be diving into inside our group courses while surrounded by the camaraderie of other Teacher Trainers and community support . You may also choose to do private or duet training for specific questions you would like more help with.


  • Purposeful cueing, both verbal and tactile


  • Class designing


  • Teaching the client in front of you


  • Conducting a class with success


  • Exercise review


  • Completing observation and practice teaching hours


  • Test prepping


  • Teaching your first paying client and growing your clientele


  • Continued support and answering questions you have

"Such an excellent course. Kelly leads us through masterfully, with endless knowledge and heart. I’m so grateful to have found her: such an amazing space, and positive energy surrounds the whole training process. I have felt free to learn, make mistakes, and grow."

Courses and Private Mentoring Sessions Available

Attend In-Person or Online. Recordings are available after purchase.


You are newly trained and have had a lot of information presented to you in (let’s face it) a pretty short time. There is still so much to learn about the art of teaching. Let me continue to mentor and help you launch a new career or dive deeper into your current teaching situation with a hands-on approach. Feel supported and well-informed throughout your teaching, observation, and practice hours. Feel entirely prepared for your final test or to keep growing in your current position. There will be allotted time for Q & A’s and an open forum within each meeting.

Extra private and duet coaching hours are available for even deeper dives and specific hands-on coaching.

Hi, I’m Kelly


Owner of Blue Moon Pilates since 2002, I was previously a professional ballet dancer for 15 years, dancing as a principal dancer in companies on stages in the US and abroad. I have also been a private coach, judge, and adjudicator for dance for over 25 years. Pilates has been a part of my life since I was a teen, and I have been a certified Pilates instructor for 36 years. My initial training was with First and Second-generation Pilates mentors Diane Diefenderfer, Romana Kryzanowska, and Ron Fletcher. Ten years ago, I decided that I wanted to become an Educator for the international renowned Balanced Body Education Inc., teaching comprehensive Pilates certification courses and BB-Barre passing down the knowledge that I have learned along the way and deep love for movement. I am so honored to have an imprint on the next generation of instructors and with the Balanced Body courses we hold and now, with this mentoring program, to support an ongoing personal touch and relationship amongst our teaching community from start to finish.

I hold certifications with The National Certification for Pilates Teachers- NCPT/PMA, ACE, AFAA, NASM, The Pink Ribbon program, The Ki-Hara Technique, The Konnector, The CoreAlign, MOTR, and BODHI. In the evenings, I leave the studio only to walk into a dance studio a few evenings a week to teach dance. It's always a joy sharing my love of that art. I am certified with The American Ballet Theatre's national training curriculum. I am currently on the faculty of the American Ballet Theatres William J Gillespie school at the Segerstrom Center, teaching technique, pointe, variations, and conditioning to the pre-professional division since its opening in 2015. I love teaching and empowering my students and clients in either Pilates or dance to keep growing and give them the tools and support they deserve.
