Meet Ellene

Teaching is Ellene’s passion and has been a part of her life for over 32 years.  An accomplished Equestrian Trainer and Dressage Instructor, Ellene Kloepfer has earned United States Dressage Federation’s Bronze, Silver and Gold medals and successfully competed at Grand Prix. She was introduced to Pilates over 35 years ago by her riding instructor and quickly realized the power of Pilates.

Integrating Pilates with equestrians has always been a key strategy to realize body awareness. Her years of teaching and observing the movements of horses and riders has given her a keen eye to recognize how we carry ourselves. Ellene can easily demonstrate how the benefits of Pilates can be applied to all fitness activities.

Ellene has studied Pilates with Raoul Rossiter, Richard Rossiter, 2nd Generation Master Instructor, and Bonnie Grebe, also 2nd Generation Master Instructor.  She has studied dressage extensively with Jan Ebeling, US Olympic Team member. She is eager to share the tremendous benefits of Pilates with you!

Testimonials

"I have been attending regular Pilates classes with Ellene Kloepfer for a year now.  I am pleased to say that I am so much stronger and I'm able to do exercises that would have been impossible before.  I have serious issues with my neck and the training has relieved much of my discomfort.  Ellene is very careful to make sure my neck is protected and that the exercises are structured in such a way as to benefit my healing."

Rosemary

"I have been taking Pilates (mat and refomer) twice a week now for over a year and have had amazing results in gaining core strength, flexibility, balance and inner awareness of my body. Besides that, I have lost pounds and inches... can't beat that!  Ellene is an amazing instructor... I feel very blessed  to have her instruction in Pilates as well as in Dressage. She is very detailed, engaging and her workouts are challenging.  I just keep coming back for more...  I love her classes!!" 

Rochelle

"I started Pilates at my Physician's recommendation after not exercising for 15 years.  Ellene immediately embraced the challenge of increasing my strength and flexibility.  Her tireless positivity and encouragement builds my confidence and self-esteem which in turn makes me want to work harder.  With her personal attention and motivating instruction she makes me feel as if I am the only one in the class.  When I become discouraged, my favorite phrase of Ellene's is “ You’re here, that’s what counts”.  I started Pilates in search of strength and flexibility and I have also, unexpectedly, found a friend."

Corene

"I discovered Pilates 6 months ago and it’s amazing!  I tell people it will be something I do the rest of my life.  Besides the body transformation, the instructor Ellene makes all the difference.  I can’t imagine going to a class without her instruction, she’s awesome!"

"I can’t say enough good things about Kerry Mathern, and Pilates 4 Bodies. I truly appreciate Kerry’s mindfulness and attention to detail, as I came to pilates with back and shoulder issues.  Kerry has helped me create awareness in my own body, while cultivating strength.

Julie

"Kerry is a wonderful teacher who brings out the best in all her students. She understands the unique needs of everyone in her class and respects what we can do while challenging us to be the best we can be. Kerry is incredible supportive, fun, and positive; it's truly a joy to be with her. I can personally attest to the strength and confidence I've gained by studying under her. I felt the impact of what she taught us even after my first class with her--and every class after that! Whether you are new to pilates or have years of experience, Kerry will help you reach your goals and have a blast doing it!"

Laurel

“A friend of mine kept urging me to try out Pilates with her.  I finally acquiesced. I had no idea what it would entail. I was hooked from the first day. It did not matter that I was a beginner. Kerry, the instructor, was so hands on with giving guidance and encouragement. She loves what she does and is passionate about teaching others. I look forward to working out!”

Anne

"Kerry is a wonderful Pilates instructor. She has been my teacher at Pilates4Bodies for the last 7 months. She is sweet, precise, efficient and highly qualified. She will correct you a lot at the beginning as she really cares about you doing the right movement. Forming good habits is essential in Pilates. Kerry has been truly dedicated to help me reaching my goals. She does a great job challenging students enough but also customizing some excercises if you have a tight back and neck issues. I highly recommend her! One hour with Kerry is a good workout and fun!
