Personal Best Pilates Studio

Stephanie Doering, BFA, PMA-CPT

Kathleen BrownStephanie Doering was introduced to Pilates as a teenager during a summer Ballet and Modern dance intensive. She was delighted to continue studying Pilates while pursuing her BFA in Dance Performance from the University of Nevada Las Vegas. After graduating in 2005, she moved to New York City to pursue a career as a concert dancer. 

Stephanie did take some time away from the dance world, but realized that she just could not stay away from Pilates and its benefits. The focus on core strength, mind body connection, and flow of movement calls to her inherent need to move, but also provides a healthy lifestyle. After a move to the Midwest with her husband, she discovered Personal Best Pilates Studio.  She completed her Comprehensive Pilates Instructor Certificate from PBPIA and became PMA certified in 2013. Stephanie recently became manager of The Boutique at Personal Best. She is beyond grateful to be part of the Personal Best family.

Why she loves her job (in her own words)

I enjoy sharing with a client their experience from the very beginning, while learning the fundamentals, to accompanying them on their journey and realizing how much the Pilates Principles and Philosophy can enrich their life. Whether a client wants to overcome an injury or discover a new level of healthy living, I am delighted to contribute to the achievement of their personal goals. 


Personal Best Pilates Studio is the ONLY Pilates Studio in the Kansas City area that requires PMA Certification for all our Pilates Teachers.
