Carla Shifflett

Carla was first drawn to pilates in 1998 while recovering from injuries that did not improve after years of traditional physical therapy approaches. She was fortunate to find a studio that offered a rehabilitative approach to Pilates. Carla immediately noticed the benefits and was hooked. This method changed her life, and she spent the following years in a long, involved training to learn how to teach movement retraining to others.  In 2002, she became a certified Pilates instructor through The Physical Mind Institute and has also studied the STOTT PILATES method extensively. Carla later worked at The Albemarle Center for Health & Rehabilitation and found that years of working with an injured population taught her the art of seeing structural imbalances clearly. 

Holding a BA in Philosophy and Religion, Carla returned to school to study the sciences in 2005 and continues to study movement analysis and physical therapy techniques. She opened Posture Studio as a way to educate clients in hopes that she could keep others from developing chronic pain in their own lives. Carla currently works with a range of people, varying from post-rehabilitative clients to athletes. She also enjoys mentoring other instructors by teaching them the art of seeing and correcting postural alignment.

Liz Reynolds

Liz first discovered Pilates as a way to deepen her awareness of mind/body techniques and anatomical knowledge, and continues to study movement analysis and postural retraining techniques.

In 2005 while dancing for a company in New York City, Liz received her comprehensive Pilates certification at Sal Anthony's Movement Salon, a program which encouraged developmental dexterity. While earning her masters in dance at Temple, Liz also began practicing yoga and fell in love with the physical, mental and spiritual journey that each practice offered.

Liz offers a unique perspective on movement. She has the aesthetic eye of a dancer, the postural and anatomical knowledge of a Pilates teacher, and the calm and clear presence of a yoga practitioner. Liz offers her students a wide range of information and we are happy to welcome her to the Posture Studio team.
