Sharkie Burgert

Sharkie discovered Pilates after the birth of her second child. Initially, her Pilates practice began as a way to get back into shape after pregnancy. Sharkie soon found that Pilates brought much more than fitness into her life -- Pilates brought a renewed sense of energy and joy to everyday living. Sharkie is working towards her Comprehensive Pilates Certification with Balanced Body and looks forward to sharing the benefits of Pilates with her students. In addition to Pilates, Sharkie also enjoys traveling and rock climbing with her family.

Jennifer Randle

Jennifer found her practice when she suffered a serious back injury that required emergency surgery. During her recovery, she felt blessed and energized by the healing benefits of daily meditation and yoga which were critical to her physical and mental improvement. She began teaching in 2007 and in 2013 she completed her 500 hour advanced certification at the Yoga Center of Columbia.

In addition to yoga, Jen holds Balanced Bodies certifications in Pilates Mat I and II, and a Moms in Motion certification in Prenatal Fitness. Jen is passionate about offering modified yoga and Pilates to those who may have lost core power or flexibility due to pregnancy or other special conditions. Holding a postgraduate degree in Modern Studies, she also enjoys incorporating the modern relevance of yogic texts and principles into her classes.

Jennifer is devoted to creating a safe and experiential environment for her clients that honors awareness of the breath during moments of movement and stillness. She encourages an appreciation for the importance of alignment through core strength, balance and flexibility — both on the mat and in life. A lifelong student, Jennifer relishes time with her teachers and enjoys her journey as she refines and evolves her practice and teaching.
