Pilates Teacher & Reiki Practitioner
Hi! I'm Kellie Franks. I began practicing Pilates because I needed more time to feel better in my body, get out of pain, clear my mind, move and keep living. In 2007, I was going through a horrible divorce (more on that in my blog). I was now a single mom with 2 small children and very little time to do anything and a lot of stress. My physical health was suffering and a friend suggested Pilates. It literally changed my life! I truly believe that Pilates can and will change your mind and body. After experiencing a transformation in my mind and body, I decided I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share Pilates with others. I want every woman feel strong in their mind and body. If you feel better you do better! My mission is for you to keep doing everything you love in life.
I have 3 children 2 daughters, Abigail 22 and Hannah 19 and 1 son, Brodie 5. So I know what it's like to feel like you don't have time for yourself. My son loves doing Pilates with me. You can find us doing Pilates together on my Instagram feed. I have a wonderful, supportive husband, Craig, that also enjoys Pilates. We have a home studio so that I can offer sessions in our home or virtually.
In 2008, I began teaching and truly studying the Pilates method. I have completed various levels of instructor training through Balanced Body University and continue to train regularly and further my education.
I'm a Pilates teacher, Barre teacher, Post-Natal Pilates Specialist and a Reiki practitioner.
In May of 2022, I was attuned in 2nd Degree Reiki. As a Reiki practitioner, I am able to offer Reiki treatment to individuals in person and distance.
I truly believe that Pilates and Reiki are an amazing compliment to each other. Pilates moves the energy physically and Reiki moves the energy spiritually. Both require an open mind and open heart.
Therefore connecting the Mind, Body & Spirit!
