Linzey has always been a kinesthetic learner. She received a B.A. from UNC-Asheville in Corporeal Theory and Performativity. She holds a Master of Liberal Studies through the University of MN, with emphasis in: Corporeal Theory, Performance, Pedagogy and Gender Studies. Her love for teaching has expanded across all fields and amongst diverse populations. With a background in social work and education and a passion for healing/holistic health, she has found that training others has allowed her to help people directly and pursue her passion.
She is a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Association of Sports Medicine. Through training others, she found that core strength, stabilization and balance were consistently challenging for most clients. It was this realization that motivated her to pursue PIlates. She is a trained instructor through STOTT Pilates, focusing on proper alignment, technique and form following the natural curves of the spine. She has a knack for pushing people while avoiding injury and making working out a challenging, fun and playful experience. She loves (amongst many things): cats, swimming and laughing so hard it hurts.

Amy Kingwill is a movement specialist with 30 years experience in dance training and performance; her Pilates training, yoga practice, Alexander Technique and Feldenkrais work build on this foundation. She brings her love of motion, her kinesthetic awareness, and her inquisitiveness about what bodies can do to assisting you in developing a stronger, happier, healthier body. Amy holds a BFA in Modern Dance from the University of Utah and is a comprehensively certified Body Arts and Science International (BASI) Pilates Instructor. She holds certificates in Pilates in Pregnancy and Beyond and Pilates for Injuries and Pathologies from BASI, and is working toward specialization in rehabilitation and age-related conditioning.
An active person who spent many years going “all out” as a professional dancer, Amy learned Pilates to address an injured hip with chronic pain and arthritis. She learned that if we consciously repattern motion efficiently, use healthy alignment, and strengthen muscles through proper body mechanics, we can remove limitations of motive expression and release the pain which restricts us. By doing Pilates regularly, you will find a restored confidence in yourself, in your body, and in your ability to do what you most love to do. Classes with Amy focus on awareness, precision, flexibility, and strength, and assure that you have fun, learn a lot, and leave feeling invigorated and inspired.
Jenna studied yoga and obtained her certification from Yoga Fountain in San Francisco, California in 2012. She came to yoga 8 years ago in search of a natural way to heal from years of back pain and has been practicing ever since. As a competitive athlete for over 28 years, Yoga really found a place in her heart being that it is a practice that is always “living” and evolving as well as challenging not just the body, but also the nature of the spirit.
Her style is one that blends vinyasa flow with hatha align principles as well as focusing on the breath in the different asanas. Jenna’s playlists are eclectic and usually made from music that is currently inspiring to her, ranging anywhere from classic rock, country, indie pop electronic, r & B to zen flutes and sitars. As a teacher, it is important for her to share what inspires her as well as empower others through her yoga sequencing, playlists, and yoga philosophy.
“I have found that the ancient practice of Yoga is the best way to uncover the truths of the body, mind, and spirit. I love how in my toughest moments of life, I always look back to how my yoga practice was there and has always left me feeling fulfilled, whole, integrated. Keeping the body healthy is a form of blessing it and Yoga always asks me to check in with myself and be honest with where I am at mentally as well as physically. Without a doubt, discovering Yoga is one of the single most important moments of my life and it is my sincerest desire to share some of the benefits of this beautiful practice with all those around me.”
