Thalia Kirchwehm

Group reformer and one-on-one private lessons. She's been practicing Pilates since she was 16 and an avid yogi since she was 18. At age 21, Thalia was diagnosed with a herniated disc in her cervical spine (the neck), and she would be out of commission for days when her neck injury would fire up. All specialists she saw recommended surgery, but at such a young age, she knew that there must be another way. Ironically a physical therapist recommended Pilates! Since she already had years of experience, she dove in, taking 3 privates a week, which relieved her pain completely. These results led her to become a teacher. She felt her experience would help others as it helped her. Now she teaches at Kore everyday and has been pain free for over 6 years! Focusing on Classical Pilates workouts, teaching the original exercises as they were meant to be taught. Thalia is guided by her mentor Sunni Almond and is always continuing her education, attending seminars and workshops all over the country with the most well renowned teachers in the industry. 

Trained in anatomy, Thalia can help clients with any ailments; hip replacement, knee surgery, vertigo, acid reflux, stroke, postnatal, prenatal, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, high blood pressure, any surgery recovery (elective or necessity), and that's only to name a few! There is a Pilates workout regimen for any and all individuals. Her goal is healthy clients... Thalia gives exceptional workouts to tone, gain strength, improve posture and achieve a higher quality of life. She welcomes all levels, even those with no experience at all. Feel free to email her directly at thalia@korepilatesandyoga.com, she's available to answer any questions.

Kasey Shaffer

Kasey teaches Burn at the Barre, as a former dancer and someone who has had a few injuries, she finds Barre to be an exhilarating way to stay active. Her enthusiasm and bright spirit leaves people hungry and wanting to come back to class again. She keeps her classes sweating, learning and having fun while at the Barre. While she has a blast teaching she always keeps her eye open for correct form, not only so you can feel the burn in the right places but to also keep you from getting an injury. She is passionate about learning new things and helping others to stay active, stay motivated, and better their quality of life. Her healthy lifestyle is what got her into KORE and motivates her to continue educating herself in new moves to improve her everyday life.
