Robyn has been teaching Pilates for over 13 years and nothing gives her more joy than teaching and watching someone realize how awesome they are. She grew up dancing and knew from a young age that she wanted to move and challenge her body. While studying dance, performance, and Kinesiology at Roger Williams University she discovered Pilates and fell in love with the endless benefits it holds.
In 2008 she opened her own Pilates and Fitness studio in San Francisco called Body Equations and it remained her passion for 6 years. In 2014 Robyn decided to evolve her boutique studio by teaming up with Studiomix, an independently owned local gym and helping to develop their new pilates program. Recently, Robyn has moved to Atlanta to be closer to family while raising her daughter. Her goal is to make Pilates more mainstream, without losing it's integrity, and teaching it as a tool that can enhance and improve other fitness goals. Robyn’s personal fitness philosophy is Strength and Flexibility are not two separate things-- you can't have one without the other. In order to find balance you have to challenge it, you have to stumble and you have to laugh at yourself. Besides, laughing is the best way to get killer abs.
Robyn has a BA in Dance and Performance and has been a certified pilates instructor through BASI since 2005.
Born in California, Thomas Kendall trained in both classical and contemporary dance at San Francisco Ballet and The Royal Ballet School in London before continuing his education in Pilates.
He has had the opportunity to dance professionally with Ballett Zürich in Switzerland and Scottish Ballet in the UK, where he performed in a wide number of productions and worked with numerous choreographers.
Thomas’ passion for helping people attain controlled and graceful movement has inspired him to move into the field of Pilates and fitness. He received his Pilates certified instructor training through PILATESwiss in Zürich, Switzerland.
With over twenty years of dance, he has gained both experience and knowledge in the joy and art of movement.
Jaclyn Cerny discovered Pilates in 2013 in Denver Colorado while she was studying to be a yoga instructor. She immediately fell in love with the way Pilates made her body feel, and how it felt completely in sync with her asana practice. She completed her 200 hour RYT in vinyasa flow yoga and went on to complete her 500 hour Pilates certification through Balanced Body. She loves to share her passion for movement and breath with others and enjoys coming up with unique sequencing and exercises based on the needs of her clients. Jaclyn is a newlywed living in Atlanta with her husband Zach and dog, Maverick. When she’s not teaching, you may catch Jaclyn rollerblading the Beltline blasting 80’s music, hiking up in north Georgia, yoga flowing in the park, or canoodling with her dog at a local brewery.

My love of movement has existed longer than I can remember. I am a dancer and value the stability, strength, and freedom I've gained through committing to Pilates as a practice. I received my training under the tutelage of Lawson Harris and Ashley Barenz at The Lab in Brooklyn where they encouraged us to stay curious about the evolution of this practice. I am fascinated with the mechanics + capacity of the body, wellness, and anatomy; that has led to my love of teaching and sharing with others. My teaching practices aims to empower people, help them feel stronger, and find joy through movement. You can expect a challenging session focused on sensation throughout the body and heavily focused on the breath + mindfulness of the practice.
