Morgan Skiles

Morgan recently moved to Seattle after living in Indiana most of her life. Growing up as a dancer, fitness and movement have been core values throughout her upbringing. Morgan graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology with a concentration in Contemporary Dance from Indiana University. It was in college that she first started integrating Pilates into her life as cross training and rehabilitation for dance injuries.
 
Morgan loves to share her knowledge of anatomy and biomechanics to help improve her clients’ comprehension of posture and human movement. She has been teaching Pilates for 5 years with certifications from STOTT Pilates and PHI Pilates, and continues dancing professionally.
 
Morgan has worked with all ability levels and loves to bring new and innovative ways to modify and make the movement work for every student in class.


Morgan Skiles instructs the following:
  • Power BARRE
  • This class blends together the best of Pilates, yoga, and body sculpting. Get a complete body workout through a high intensity and low impact class that tones your muscles with isolated movements, isometric exercises, and light weights complimented by a continual fat burning process. This class tones your seat, abdominals, thighs, arms as well as strengthens your legs, back, and improves your posture. You will use our own body weight for resistance targeting each of your muscle groups to the point of fatigue. Then, you will stretch those muscles in a way that promotes long and lean muscle growth developing a long and lean physique.

    Classes utilize light weights, exercise balls, bands and, of course, TRIBE's ballet barre, to lengthen and align the body. Space is limited to 12 TRIBE community members.

    If your goals include rock-solid glutes, toned and shaped thighs, and super-cut arms (IOW, the bod of a God), then reserve your spot for Power Barre today. We’d love to have you! Grip socks recommended (available for purchase).


  • Power Reformer
  • Power Reformer is our signature class. This high energy workout combines strength training at a non-stop pace, with the core and balance training of a reformer. The pace will keep your heart rate elevated for the full 50 minutes to maximize full-body strength and ensure a high-intensity cardio workout. If you want lean, toned muscles, strength, endurance and fat-burning, this workout is for you. Structured in 15 minute increments covering upper body, legs and core, Power Reformer works every muscle and boosts metabolism, helping you to jack the gravitational forces that even the most dedicated men and women face every day. Space is limited to 10 TRIBE members per class. 

  • Power Reformer/Jumpboard
  • Simply put, Power Reformer/Jumpboard is aerobic version of Power Reformer. And here’s what makes it so fun—and so challenging:

    Using an attachment that converts your traditional Pilates Reformer into a horizontal jumping machine, you can, with one, quick adjustment to the attachment’s spring tension, jump (again, horizontally) on your reformer as if it were the floor. Cool, huh?

    Welcome to Power Reformer Jumpboard, a choreographed cardio routine that uses the principles of Plyometrics to build speed and power through activation of the fast-twitch muscle fibers in your quadriceps.

    In this class, you’ll challenge your core, elevate your heart rate, improve coordination, burn calories and strengthen muscles. Space is limited to 10 TRIBE members per class. Grip socks required (available for purchase).


  • Reformer Pilates
  • This classic Pilates Reformer class focuses on the body as a whole, to increase flexibility, strength, balance, agility, create a stronger core, improved mental well-being and a fuller range of motion. All while turning the abdominal muscles, lower back and hips into your body’s powerhouse.

    Because Reformer Pilates is a non-impact, balanced technique, it’s great for just about anyone—from the super-fit, to beginners to those coming back from an injury. Space is limited to 10 TRIBE members per class. Grip socks required (available for purchase).
