The Pilates Studio Bexley

Our Instructors



Katie Baker

BS Athletic Training
NSCA-CPT Personal Trainer
Certified Pilates and Gyrotonic ® Instructor

I’m a sports enthusiast & love everything about fitness & focused movement. I have 15+ years’ experience in the fitness industry. I believe that the body must be challenged by all types of movement & never do the same workout day to day! I love being outside, feel like I hit the jackpot of a family & not a day goes by that I don’t eat some dark chocolate! Take my class and you will leave with a full body workout, aware of your body’s posture and hopefully had a few good laughs!



Jamie Weller

I have been teaching Pilates for 10 years and practicing for 17. I am trained in Stott Pilates and Power Plate and have a BA in Business Administration. I grew up in Columbus and am raising two kids here with my husband, Brad. I love watching the Buckeyes, visiting the beach and playing in the snow. My class style has been described as the silent killer because although my voice may be sweet, my classes are intense!

My goal is to make each of my clients focus on how they can transfer what we work on during our session to their everyday lives.

I hail from beautiful sunny Southern California where I received my Pilates certification through BASI. I have a BS in Nutritional Sciences from Cal Poly, Pomona. I moved to Columbus with my fiancé (an Ohio native) and our Miniature Dauschund last year. My goal as a Pilates Instructor is to improve your health, one session at a time. I try to stay true to the work of Joseph and Clara Pilates so my class focus emphasizes form and quality of body alignment.

The Pilates Studio Laura


Laura Baird

I am TPS and Power Pilates Reformer certified and am completing my Power Pilates Comprehensive training. Pilates was the life, body and mind changing experience I needed to get back into fitness after the birth of my youngest child. I live in Upper Arlington with my 3 wonderful children, husband, dog and 2 hamsters! As an instructor, I’m motivated by the changes I see in myself and others. I like to tailor my workout to the clients’s needs and challenge their minds and bodies, leaving the clients energized, centered and strong!

Tal Simon


Tal Simon

As a former professional dancer, I began cross-training in Pilates and subbing in New York City for Pilates reformer and chair classes. I picked up  Zumba and group fitness certifications and began teaching different group fitness classes throughout the City. When I moved to Columbus in 2012, I received formal Pilates training from TPS and have been teaching group Reformer classes ever since. Since beginning my job as a corporate attorney two years ago, I cut my teaching schedule to one class per week. Because of this, I make my class challenging but am always prepared to give you modifications. Join me!

Sara Ortlip

ACE Certified Pilates Reformer Instructor
Bachelor of Fine Arts from OSU

Growing up as a gymnast and diver, I had been coached in Pilates long before I practiced on a reformer. In my early 20’s, I took my first Pilates Reformer class, and fell in love. I continued to practice, and received my certification in April 2014. Pilates helped me rehab after several sports-related back injuries and two c-sections.

Though my foundation is in classical Pilates, I am passionate about taking and teaching fitness-based and jump Pilates. Aside from instructing Pilates, I teach barre, cycle, lift/hiit, and mat-based movement classes in a local heated studio. I stay active by teaching 8-12 group fitness classes/week along with playing on a year-round tennis team, and regularly practicing Pilates, Vinyasa, and gymnastics.

My classes are challenging, intense, and fun with a strong focus on form and safety. I will push you out of your comfort zone, but you will thank me! I live in Worthington with my husband and two children.
