Carrie Lamb, PT, DPT, OCS, NCPT
I am a mover – plain and simple. I fidget, I stretch, I sit on the floor, I make things. I cook, I teach, and I play outside as much as I can. I’m grateful every day that 20 years ago I was accepted into Physical Therapy school.
I found my calling early and have spent my entire career as a curious observer of how we move. Functional, dysfunctional, different, interesting, and outright unbelievable movement patterns spark my curiosity and my creativity. I continue to be inspired and fascinated with the ability of the human body and mind to adapt and change (for better or worse) to meet the demands being placed on it.
I’ve spent many years learning manual techniques to align, lengthen, release, and stretch different areas of the body. What I’ve learned is that they are all useful as long as they help restore MOVEMENT. We are mobile beings and interact with each other and our world through our ability to move. I am passionate about empowering people to optimize their movement and fully engage with the world around them. This passion has given me amazing opportunities to teach locally, nationally and internationally to spread my love of movement. I hope to share that with you too!

I love to move and have been teaching movement all my working life. My involvement in physical training, international coaching and movement education spans almost 50 years. The scope includes programming for mentally/physically challenged children and adults, Pilates, Yoga, Tai Chi, Modern Dance and motor learning in most sports (especially Skiing, Gymnastics, Tennis and Luge).
As Director of Education in a Connecticut psychiatric hospital and Team Manager for the Canadian Junior Luge Olympic Development Team I learned how one perceives their body and its abilities. I also learned that this can predict both their future and their body’s future.
I know through Physical/Mental training your body will learn healthy movement patterns that will prolong your shelf-life! You will become friends with body parts that heretofore may have been perceived as problem children. Your body changes and your perception of your abilities and future changes as well. You learn how your body is designed to move. With this owners’ manual for your body, enjoy movement again! This changes your life and your future.

Arielle Bernard is a third-generation Romana’s Pilates instructor with ten years of teaching experience. She fell in love with Pilates while at Skidmore College in upstate New York – despite years of team sports and personal fitness, Pilates was the first discipline that taught her how to connect her body, mind, and spirit through movement. She is passionate about helping others build and maintain a connection to their own bodies.
Amidst the classical routine you will learn in her classes, you may also notice her love of dance, yoga, fitness, and humor steeping into the workout. Arielle’s classes are upbeat and fun, focusing on alignment and precision to get the most out of every exercise.

Ashley grew up with the Colorado passion for a healthy and active lifestyle. She was first introduced to Pilates while working at an athletic club. She enjoyed the exercise and the difference it made in her body, but it wasn’t until a car accident that she developed a deeper appreciation for the healing benefits of Pilates. It was then that she realized that Pilates isn’t just a form of exercise but also a way to rehab from past injuries and to find muscular and structural balance to avoid future injuries. Ashley completed her comprehensive Pilates certification through Balanced Body in 2015.
She has since continued her education by completing courses in anatomy, MOTR, and Bodhi Suspension System, and also tested to become a Fully-Qualified CoreAlign Instructor. She loves sharing her knowledge and watching it translate to more efficient movement for her clients.
Ashley shares her life with her loving husband and sweet baby boy. Together they love hiking, coffee dates, travel, and adventures big and small.
I am a firm believer in training your body to be strong for not only the life you want to live, but for the life you are currently living.
I’m passionate about using Pilates based movements and resistance training in my practice. Our body requires resistance in order to develop strong bones, muscles, and joints, but it is critical resistance training is performed correctly.
Pilates focuses on engaging different muscular systems within the body to develop connection, stability, and strength. Adding functional movements – like squats, overhead lifts, seated rotations – to our Pilates regimen is essentially “preventative medicine” for the body. As we become stronger in our activities of everyday life, the margin for injury narrows.

Lindy Royer, PT, NCPT
As a little girl growing up in Sydney, Australia, I was always very curious about how things were put together, and spent hours taking my dolls and toys apart trying to figure out how they worked. Eventually, I applied this curiosity to the study of physiotherapy, Pilates and human movement.
My passion for skiing and adventure brought me to the US and I moved to Steamboat Springs, CO, in the late 1970’s. Before returning to the practice of PT several years later, I experienced a variety of jobs, working as an EMT/Ski Patroller, a fitness club manager and group fitness instructor (complete with mandatory ‘80’s headband and legwarmers), a rafting guide, and doing odd manual labor and landscaping jobs. For me, movement is life, and no matter what work I was engaged in, the theme was the same—I gravitated to physical activity in the outdoors.
I was introduced to Pilates over 20 years ago and it instantly and forever changed the way I related to movement, movement teaching and Physical Therapy practice. After gaining my Comprehensive Pilates Certification, I became a Pilates Educator for Polestar Education in 2002, and had the opportunity to teach Pilates courses throughout the US. For the past 11 years I’ve represented Balanced Body Education as a Master instructor in Pilates, MOTR and Barré.
Providing our clients and patients with tools to empower them and improve the way they move throughout life continues to inspire me, and I love sharing what I’m learning along the movement journey with others. And yes, I’m still passionate about skiing!
