Meet Our Instructors

REGAN, OWNER

Regan discovered her passion for movement at a young age and was determined to become a ballet dancer at the age of two. Regan was a classically trained dancer who also played various sports until high school, including tennis and golf. Regan began pilates and yoga when she was in fourth grade, and started teaching dance soon after. In highschool, Regan started gyrotonic to help her be strong and flexible to enhance her dance career as well as prevent her from injury. Regan graduated from Southern Methodist University with a BFA in Dance Performance and a minor in Psychology. Soon after, Regan became a professional dancer. As a side job, Regan was teaching pilates and through that discovered a need for a different approach for helping people feel better and move better in their bodies. Regan began studying biomechanics and getting certified in yoga and gyrotonic technique as well as studying kinesiology. Regan used her knowledge to understand how to address movement in the modern day body to undo all the tension and poor movement patterns that create bad posture, tension, and injuries in their bodies. Through both her years of training and her constant search for understanding the body, Regan came up with a movement form and technique to find freedom of movement in people’s own bodies. Regan’s goal is to make people feel safe, connected, strong, and supple in their bodies. Everyone deserves to look and feel their best.
