Every season, we introduce a new Angel to you. We have wonderful instructors and would love for you to know them better!
Peggy O’Keefe has been a certified STOTT Pilates instructor since 2008. She has been teaching fitness classes of all different styles for the past 15 years, and is a Certified Personal Trainer. Her passion for working with people to improve their overall health and wellness led her into the field of Pilates and fitness. Read more about Peggy and see her schedule here.
5 Things About Peggy:
Most important lesson learned: From my parents. My dad always taught me to “do the right thing” and my mom taught me to never give up in life even when facing adversity.
Favorite quote: Henry Ford said, “whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right.”
Favorite movie: “To Kill A Mockingbird”. I’ve always loved watching this movie with my kids, and still do. It’s all about doing the right thing and standing up for what you believe in, no matter what.
Most treasured possession: All the wonderful memories that I have growing up in a large family. And all the beautiful and fun memories that I have created with my own family.
Favorite way to spend free time: I love spending my free time with my husband and boys when our schedules come together. Another favorite is in the early morning, having a cup of coffee with my Labrador, Max, sleeping near by!

Are you a dancer who has been sidelined and frustrated by injuries? Do you wonder what your next career will be when dance is no longer a physically viable livelihood?
Leslie Braverman, our own Co-Founder and Co-Owner, and Lead Instructor Trainer, STOTT PILATES, is the lovely ballerina in the photo. She was led to pilates because of an injury and credits it with prolonging her career.
Teaching pilates was a natural transition for Leslie because it used skills she already had:
- a keen body awareness and understanding about physical fitness and movement
- the ability to explain movement and teach it to another person
- the strength and stamina to have a physical job
