Kebi has been a dancer and lover of movement most of her life. She first learned Pilates while studying ballet and modern dance at the performing arts high school she attended in Oklahoma City. Feeling injured and tired after 15 years of dancing, she changed focus and attended Oklahoma State University where she received a BA in English Literature. In 2009, while living in Denver, CO, almost a decade later, she began taking reformer classes to get ready for her upcoming wedding. She was instantly hooked!  By November of 2010 she had begun her first teacher training and in 2011 began teaching Pilates full time. Kebi's Pilates practice led her to a yoga class where she discovered the benefits vinyasa! Kebi believes that the structured technique of Pilates keeps her strong and together so that yoga can be open and fluid. In 2014, she completed a 200 hr vinyasa yoga teacher training before relocating with her husband to Philadelphia.   Kebi is committed to creating strong relationships with her clients to help them access Pilates in a safe, fun and refined way. She is also committed to a strong self practice and continuing her education as a way to continually strive towards being the best teacher she can be.
