NICE TEAM

JENNIFER WINTER

Jennifer Winter (she/her) is a human, mover, facilitator and creator who is on a mission to disrupt the wellness space. As a former ballet and contemporary artist, Jenn's love for movement and body mechanics runs deep. The blueprint of Pilates has taught Jenn that less is more and mind-body connection will give you superpowers. Jenn believes that self care is all about working with our daily funks and off days. Once we map out a sustainable and honest wellness formula, that is when we can truly understand our individual wants and needs.

Carman Chan

Carman Chan (she/her) is a movement facilitator and former dancer based in Toronto. Her approach to movement is rooted in connection, curiosity and joy. Depending on what classes you catch her in, her teaching style can vary from an upbeat, energetic sweaty party to a gentle, slow flow (usually, it's a bit of both). Her curiosity peaks when exploring interesting ways we can move and how she can best-serve the individual(s) around her. Lately, she's been spending time with her inner child for insight and inspiration on what it can feel like to witness, experience and share more joy through movement.

Alexa Xavier

Alexa Xavier (she/her) has a deep love for using Pilates principles to find a movement practice that sticks with ya! She prioritizes functionality, sustainability, and joy to help us uncover a deep connection to self-care + self-worth. She uses this sensibility to work towards dismantling diet-culture in fitness and shifting the societal mindset to recognize that all bodies are good bodies.  Trained in both contemporary mat + reformer Pilates, as well as having an introductory personal-training certificate, Alexa has taken and will continue to take courses in movement for trauma, trans-inclusive movement + wellness, Pilates for larger bodies, and anti-oppressive work in wellness spaces.

Kathryn Gilmore

Kathryn Gilmore is (she/her) is a lifelong human and lover of movement. Kat aims to create an environment in her classes that encourages strength from a humble & playful place. With a background in contemporary pilates and an overall enthusiasm for dance, Kat hopes to create a space where we can explore sensations through breath connection, rhythm and articulated movement. She encourages us all to remember that we are alive in our bodies and to embrace the joy, the messiness and the unexpected and that every moment, everyday, and every class has the potential to feel just a little bit different.

CAITLIN BURNS

Caitlin (she/her) started practicing Pilates in 2017 after an injury that left her kneecap in an unstable state and sliding in the wrong direction. The road to recovery was long but the greater challenge was finding the space to connect to her body. With time and patience, Caitlin was able to find a more meaningful connection to her body and to her practice. It is that journey and subsequent connection that inspires all of her classes. Her ultimate goal is to create an atmosphere that is as challenging as it affirming and accepting. She believes the expression of movement is unique and would like her classes to serve as a platform from which all people can find their peace in movement.
