Kelly Curry

Co-owner, Certified Pilates & Essesstial Somatics Instructor, B Com, CA


I followed a winding road to becoming a Pilates teacher. I studied business in university, but my passions have always been physical in nature—beginning with a love of sports. With sports, though, came injuries. Fortunately, I discovered Pilates, which helped me with my body awareness, strength and alignment issues. I soon became hooked, and decided to pursue my Pilates accreditation.


I obtained my full Pilates Certification with Michele Larsson, Core Dynamics, in Sante Fe, New Mexico. I began teaching Pilates in September 2001.  I continue to study with some of North Americas most highly regarded movement teachers.  My further education includes much self study and:

  • Yamuna® Body Rolling Certification 2004
  • Pilates for Buff Bones Accreditation 2012
  • Pilates training in Fletcher Towelwork®, Floorwork® and Barrework™
  • MELT Method®- Hand and Foot Treatment Accreditation 2015
  • Essential Somatics Movement Teacher training Level I- 2018
  • Essential Somatics Movement Teacher training Level II-2020

Pilates and the other movement practices has been such a positive experience in my life and I feel honored to share its many benefits with our wonderful clients.

I found Pilates on what I thought was a brief sabbatical from the corporate world. Little did I know! I loved the detailed mind/body aspect of the work so much that I had a new career.


I have always been active in sports, but suffered with body imbalances that caused recurring knee and back pain. Pilates helped me address them. I acquired my full Pilates certification from Michele Larsson and Pilates EQ in 2008.


I love sharing my knowledge, helping my clients find their own body awareness, strength and flexibility. Breath is so important as it inspires your movement. I’m very interested in how the body moves and always looking to learn more about anatomy and other release and movement modalities. I completed pilates training in Fletcher Towelwork®, Floorwork® and Barrework™. I completed my Essential Somatics® Exercise Coach training in 2017.  Yamuna® Body Rolling training Level 1 (2015) and I am finishing off my Somatic Movement Center® Certified Exercise Instructor Level 1 Course.


I am also a FRC® Mobility Specialist (FRCms) (2017) and am working on completing my Kinstretch Certification.  This modality of work is comprehensive joint training system based in scientific principles and research created by world musculoskeletal expert Dr. Andreo Spina, Functional Range Conditioning®. 


Carrie Kohler

Certified Pilates Instructor


After learning the pilates matwork under Pilates EQ owner Kelly Curry I discovered how much I loved the full body nature of pilates both on the mat and the equipment.


A desire to share the brilliance of the pilates method led me to enrol in the Core Dynamics pilates certification program in Santa Fe, New Mexico where I studied under and was certified by Michele Larsson in 2009,  I am also mat certified with the Physical Mind Institute and am a licensed Fletcher Pilates Provider which includes the Fletcher Floorwork, Towelwork and Barre programs. I also have a Masters Degree in Industrial Relations and a B.S. degree in Organizational Sociology, both from Iowa State University.


What I love about pilates is that it is intelligent exercise.  Learning how to move with the breath while respecting the body is what I strive to teach my students.  I love the physical and mental challenge of the work but I most importantly just love how pilates makes me feel physically and mentally, which is healthy and strong. Sharing this with my clients is a true pleasure.



Pilates made me feel like I could inhabit my body in a deeper way, finding better control and awareness of myself. It changed the way I thought about movement, breath, and my ‘core’. As a teacher, Pilates gave me so many tools to help people find the support or challenge needed to connect profoundly with themselves. It provides a safe space for those working through, or recovering from injury, pregnancy, postpartum and beyond. It is the ultimate cross training tool for everyone, making one move better in life.  I feel so fortunate to have found Pilates and am so grateful to share this gift with you!

Certified Somatics Educator, ESMTT

Some say that we arrive at Somatics only after we’ve exhausted all the other alternatives. I was seriously injured in an equestrian accident in 2016 and I wondered if I would ever walk again without pain. Now, daily practice of these gentle movements gives me confidence to get on with my life and do the things I love.

Everything that has ever happened to us lives inside our bodies. Stressors are not only physical but mental and emotional and our body responds to these even if we are unaware. In time, the physical response to stress can become a habit.

The teachings of Thomas Hanna are revolutionary. Since our brain controls our muscles, Hanna taught that we can retrain our brain to release the habitually contracted muscles. The work is restorative and preventive. It doesn’t ask that you stop doing the things you love; rather that you learn to release your muscles when you relax. This is what Somatics is all about.

I have a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Alberta, was an Alberta government MLA (holding positions of Minister of Education and of Minister of Health), have completed my Essential Somatics® Movement Teacher Training and received my 3 year Clinical Somatic Educator Certificate in April 2022.
