Meet Our Pilates Leader

Sonya Simpson is the director of Rainbow Pilates. Her Pilates training  was through McIntyre Pilates. The difference in the McIntyre Pilates program is it was not only tailored to learn the dynamics of Pilates, but also was taught by a licensed physical therapist who went into post-rehab scenarios and the entire anatomy of the body. This is monumental when understanding different body types so everyone can benefit from Pilates.

Sonya-Owner, Rainbow Pilates in Suwanee, GA

Her Experience
Sonya has been in the wellness industry since 2009 after being in real estate for more than 10 years. Sonya states, "I decided I wanted to make a change, and I started within myself first. When my body started changing I realized I wanted to help others do the same."

Sonya is very passionate about changing lives one person at a time. Her specialty is in the art of teaching individuals in becoming acquainted with their breathing muscles and controlling them, and then learning different breathing techniques. One is taught to know the difference between shallow breathing and deep breathing and becoming acquainted with your diaphragm and abdominal muscles, then essentially learn how to tighten and relax them at will.

Her Goal
As a clinical/post-rehab exercise specialist and Pilates instructor, Sonya wants to vigorously, wholeheartedly, and conscientiously teach you how to live the fitness lifestyle. She will emphasize the necessity of a formal nutrition and an exercise program that covers all of the components of the circle of function. It includes a focus on gait mechanics, musculoskeletal strength, power and endurance, balance, flexibility, posture, aerobic conditioning, and neuromuscular reactive training. She does so by bridging the gap between physical therapy and personal training with clinical exercise physiology through Pilates.

Sonya also teaches alot of Private lessons to woman in the comforts of their home and educates them on how Pilates can improve woman's stress levels, strengthen their core, and give you them better muscle tone, and show them how Pilates can clearly have other benefits as well. She does a great job helping woman build confidence in themselves and helps them become the master of their mind and body and gain control in all areas of their life, including the bedroom. Pilates can be a way to an improved sex life and Lets face it, A healthy sex life is part of a balanced lifestyle and contributes to our overall wellness.  Keeping fit nnot only makes us feel better about our bodies and makes us feel sexier as women, but improves sexual function.  Pilates has specific applications for making your sex life that much better!


Personal Life/ Shhh Want to hear a secret??
Sonya is also a Cardiolates(rebounding) instructor and the creator of the new fitness crave HuBolates. She is originally from Charlotte, North Carolina, but relocated to the Atlanta area in 2005. And she is also Kendall J. That name was invented because she has established a following all over the world under the brand Shhh....I DO PILATES by Kendall J . That brand is not your typical experience but one that will leave your mind as well as your body in shock and awe. Oh, and don’t judge this book by its cover as she will tell you she doesn’t fit the mold of your skinny model fitness instructor. Why?? Cause that's just not who she is... but can do everything and more than your average. Carrying a conversation with her students that range in topic while doing the workout routine without hesitation makes her class a one of a kind. Fitness comes in all shapes and sizes and she is a walking example that an average woman living a healthy in great physical shape life can do. That is the goal right?  Many of her clients will tell you she put a twist to her Pilate’s routine by combining moves to groves such as top 50’s hit records that sooth the soul while burning the core. She chooses songs that fit her personality and choreographs every move to every lyric of music. No matter what age or gender you are you’re sure to meet or exceed your goals while having extreme fun. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family & dogs as well as traveling to different islands where she practices various forms of Pilates.

Melissa Simon          
Yoga Instructor  

Melissa's yoga journey began like so many others....after years of a very active lifestyle and engaging in many high impact activities, an illness and an injury brought her to her knees....she felt as though her body had betrayed her. After a very slow two year recovery, Melissa came back to the mat with the sole intention to start the flexibility process and slowly gain the strength to resume life as usual. But something different happened this time around. After numerous years of "taking" yoga Melissa began to connect with her body in a way she never had before and her yoga "practice" began to evolve. "I was able to be present enough to really listen to my body and understand for the first time what it meant to honor it and give it what it so desperately needed.....forgiveness." Not long after, she felt called to deepen her practice and enrolled in her first 200 hour yoga teacher training. "I wasn't sure if I was meant to teach, but I knew that I was exactly where I was suppose to be.....and here I am....years later,teaching."

She sees yoga as a personal journey and a means to understand one's self from the inside out. Her classes are free flowing, challenging, thought provoking and on most days, filled with humor. "I take my yoga practice very seriously, but not just can't. We have to find the humor in any situation."

As a teacher, it is her goal to meet each student on their individual path, mindfully guide them to find their own place of personal expression through what she calls "A moving meditation" "Yoga extends so far beyond the mat; I believe when a mind/ body/breath connection happens a mind/body conversation begins to take place and that's when the yoga magic shows up in your everyday life.....when we are able to slow down, connect with ourselves and others, amazing things can happen. Coming to the mat allows me to forgive myself. My greatest hope is that I may open a door for each of my students to discover and honor what their individual spirit needs each time they come to their mat. This is the driving intention behind sharing this gift."
