“I have been doing Pilates for about 14 years. I was a gymnast growing up and a runner. When I tore my hamstring, I knew that I needed to incorporate a form of exercise that could help strengthen and lengthen my tight muscles. I immediately fell in love with Pilates and it changed the way that I moved and felt. With a nursing degree from USC and my last child going to college, I knew that getting certified and teaching Pilates was a perfect fit.” – Lynne McIntosh

“I’m a Colorado native who moved to SC in June 2017 for family reasons. I hold a BA in Technical Communications and after working in the Oil and Gas field in Engineering/Geology for 40 years, I finally retired from corporate America in December 2021. Now here I am, teaching Pilates, proving you are never too old to reinvent yourself!
My Pilates journey began in the fall of 2018, when searching for an exercise program that would be gentle on my aging body with knee issues. I’d heard of Pilates and decided to give it a try and fell in love instantly. After my first year of practicing, I was amazed at the physical and mental results. To further educate myself in Pilates, I enrolled in Club Pilates Teacher Training in October 2019. In October of 2021, I officially became a 500 Hour Comprehensive Pilates Certified Instructor. I also completed my Yoga teacher training in 2023.
In mid-February 2022, I started teaching mat Pilates and yoga fusion classes at a yoga studio in Chapin. In December of 2022, I started teaching Cadillac-reformer Pilates at The Pilates Sculpt Studio. I love the Pilates boutique feel and small class size at The Pilates Sculpt Studio.
I enjoy the way Pilates celebrates individuality—it honors the uniqueness of each body, mind, and journey. I love sharing my love of Pilates with my clients and hope that the connection I foster with my instruction, creates an atmosphere of trust and stresses that you are never too old to learn something new.”
I’m Jordan Mancini, and fitness has been a lifelong passion of mine. Several years back, I fell in love with the practice of Pilates. The connection between mind and body, the graceful strength it cultivates kept me coming back for more. As of 2022 before opening the first Pilates Sculpt Studio, Tara, the owner, took me through the 500 hours of compressive pilates training, and I have become a certified Pilates Sculpt Instrucor. Since then Ive attended several workshops always continuing my education, and I look forward continuing to do so! Guiding others through this transformative practice brings me immense joy. I find fulfillment in helping people discover their inner strength and achieve a balanced, flexible, and strong body. I’m thrilled to work with individuals at every stage of their fitness journey – whether you’re taking your first steps or performing advanced moves, I’m here to support and challenge you.
