Kailey McCarthy was introduced to Pilates at the age of fifteen when her dance instructor informed her she was engaging the wrong muscles to initiate movement. After benefiting from the Pilates method and reprogramming her body to move more efficiently, she went on to earn a BFA in dance from the University of Arizona and dance professionally in numerous companies. She has toured internationally, performed with world renowned aerial dance company OTO Dance, performed in New York City, and produced her own modern dance concerts in New York before she returned to Arizona to study to become a Pilates instructor.

Kailey is nationally certified through the PMA and received her diploma for comprehensive training from Pilates Core Integration. She holds a BFA in Dance from the University of Arizona; is Massage Certified from The School of Healing Arts, San Diego; and has extensive experience teaching Pilates to special populations.  Kailey has been on staff at The Pilates Movement since 2013.
