Stacy Hunter celi, owner of paradigm pilates


Owner of Paradigm Pilates

Stacy Hunter Celi believes in a Mind~Body~Spirit path to optimal health. The whole body must be considered when making lasting changes, which is why Stacy regularly works with and values both Western and Eastern Doctors and Health Practitioners. Her training sessions blend the art and science of human movement, while focusing on the union of strength and balance for everyday life. Stacy’s compassion and “omni” approach to working with individuals of all levels of health and wellness can be experienced as 55 min individual sessions or 90 minute Bodywork Blend of Pilates, Cranial Sacral and Reiki.

Understanding through her own journey of personal experiences the health and wellness consequences of putting everyone else’s needs before her own is one of her favorite life lessons.  This lesson was the catalyst for the creation of her Emerging and Evolving Self Care Programs and Workshops. These programs are available at Center For Holistic Healing with Dr. Lesley Allen PT, DPT as well as in the Corporate Workplace or Small Groups LIVE or Via ZOOM.

In addition to owning Paradigm Pilates, she co-owns Vogue Pilates, a boutique studio in St. Matthews with Joan Richert, Julia Lewis and Frankie Adams. Stacy is also the Founder of  MMWAHH (think air kiss!) an awareness initiative to help those in need through Movement-Music-Wellness-Arts-and Healing. Her love for Pilates began when it was prescribed to her as an intervention for her physical therapy after a series of surgeries. She was inspired to become certified in Pilates after she experienced the benefits Pilates could offer someone, no matter what their current physical condition. Stacy is a PMA Certified Teacher since 2011 and a Pilates Sports Center Master Teacher Trainer since 2008.  She has enjoyed teaching fitness across the country since 1995 and returned to her hometown of Louisville, KY in 2007 after years of owning Pilates Village in Los Angeles and sold Pilates Village Louisville in 2016.

 Stacy Hunter Celi is currently pursuing continuing education to achieve a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. She is a student of The Institute for Integrative Nutrition and dedicated to the continuous study of Cranial Sacral Therapy,  Reiki and Jin Shin Jyutsu; a physio-philosophy art of harmonizing the life energy in the body.
