About the Author
Stacey Redfield is an actress, model, and spokesperson. Her Pilates career began after over a decade of weight training, aerobics, and two babies didn't leave many options for exercise. She quickly became a believer in the health impacts of the system and opened the Physical Methods Pilates Studio in 2000.
Sarah Holmes is passionate about sharing the benefits of Pilates. The Pilates Effect grew out of her life experiences and doctoral research at the University of California, Riverside, where she examined the practice of Pilates as it relates to race, class, and gender. She taught as an Assistant Professor of Dance and holds an MA Dance, Mills College, and a BA Economics, Scripps College, and she has published critical scholarship about Pilates. She is certified with Polestar Pilates, Peak Pilates, and the Pilates Method Alliance and worked as a Master Instructor for Peak Pilates and, more recently, Balanced Body. Her current research intersects with complexity science, somatic practice, contact improvisation, and critical race studies.
