Training

The love of movement led Stacie Walker to Pilates as a student of the method almost 15 years ago. Because of her love of training, she became a Pilates instructor and has been with Balance Tyler for 2 years. As an instructor, Stacie combines her two passions: movement and her love of teaching.

Stacie’s early classical training as a ballerina gives her a deep understanding of the principles of movement that are the foundation of the Pilates method. She uses her knowledge to help clients achieve their physical goals.

Working from home meant we could vary snack and coffee breaks, change our desks or view, goof off, drink on the job, even spend the day in pajamas
