WHY WORK OUT WHEN YOU CAN WORK IN?
I like to say that working out changes bodies, but working IN transforms lives. It’s not layering positive affirmations onto your workout, but rather getting in tune with your body by moving through developmental patterns that align the right and left side of your brain.
These movement patterns will return you to a calm, peaceful, productive, and grounded state… And the best part is, it is accessible to all. It can be experienced on a mat, in a chair, or anywhere.

The Professional Bio
Kelly holds a Bachelor’s degree in exercise science from Alma College and a Master’s degree in occupational therapy from the University of Indianapolis. In 2001, feeling bound by the limitations of traditional health care, she opened the area’s first Integrative Pilates and Rehab Clinic, Inspired Wellness, in Metro Detroit.
She holds numerous certifications in Pilates including dance specific Pilates. She has extensive training in modalities such as Brain Gym, Body Ecology, Muscle Activation, Body Rolling and Kinesio taping. Kelly also specializes in pelvic floor and pre/postnatal rehab and educates other professionals with courses through the Center for Women’s Fitness.
She also completed a 3 year course of study in Integrative manual therapy which combines techniques such as cranial sacral therapy, lymphatic drainage and myofascial release. Her favorite component of this work is the visceral (organ) releases as the effects can be profound!
Kelly’s work is sought for her unique, synergistic approach that goes beyond the diagnosis and functional deficits to examine the true root causes such as “tripped-up” reflexes, cranial-sacral system disruption, and an un-integrated nervous system.
She traveled the country as a principal educator for Polestar Pilates for 10 years. She continues to inspire rehab and wellness pros as a presenter at conferences and seminars across the country and virtually.

Snoopy is a sleepy, plushy black and tan coonhound that serves as the head greeter and lead nap facilitator at IW. He’s always ready to wag his tail when you pet and shower him with love. Be sure to request the “double deluxe” session for Snoopy to be present!
Vivi is the loving, hyper-vigilante security guard for IW & the neighborhood. She keeps everyone safe from the UPS, Fed-Ex and Amazon delivery trucks. One of her best friends is the mail carrier. Since she sticks to her security post she is often not seen until she chases the perimeter of her invisible fence barking at you not to leave
