Newport Pilates Instructors
Tracie Kedzierski: Tracie is Power Pilates© Certified and received her training in New York City and Boston. Inspired by her personal Pilates training with Jean Lilly, founder of Newport Pilates, she received her certifications, and joined the studio in 2008. A dynamic team approach quickly developed. After five+ years of teaching for Jean, it was a natural move when Tracie took over the management of the studio in 2013. “I am so fortunate to have the highest quality of Pilates instructors teaching at Newport Pilates…and an amazing group of long time clients!” She has been practicing Pilates for 23 years, receiving instruction in both the Power Pilates© and Stott Pilates© methods, and is dedicated to sharing the benefits she’s gained from her practice with her clients. A fun, classically based, invigorating and fitness focused Pilates workout guaranteed. Tracie holds a BS degree in Health Care Management and prior to teaching Pilates, has 20+ years of a successful business career in health care, personnel recruiting and real estate.
