When we walked through the doors and into the Function AZ Pilates studio, we could tell we weren’t quite ‘in the know’ with Pilates etiquette. As we brought our gear into the studio and introduced ourselves to our new clients, we suddenly became aware that we were the only ones with shoes on. Humbly, we asked if we should remove our shoes, to which Vanessa graciously informed us that ‘it’s a Pilates thing’ but we could do whatever was comfortable. We took off our shoes! 😉
Vanessa Kelly, the owner of Function AZ Pilates, sets herself apart in the Pilates world by combining Pilates with postural therapy to help patients with ailments such as Multiple Sclerosis and Scoliosis find relief and recovery quickly! She’s a powerhouse, especially when combined with her chiropractor husband, Dr. Nick Poff. The passion both Vanessa and Nick have for helping people improve their lives through their programs and treatments was instantly obvious. They exuded care and concern for others and a real desire to help people live pain free lives!
We loved working with Vanessa and Nick to help bring fresh imagery to Function AZ Pilates Studio for marketing. We also worked with Vanessa to capture step by step photos for her multiple therapy workshops that help people work through strength building exercises to correct posture and improve balance.
