Tricia Epperson is a spit-fire Barre instructor. Originally from Baltimore, Maryland, Tricia started going to group fitness classes in high school with her mom. She was immediately hooked! Whether mom wanted to go or not, Tricia was there…front row. So when she went off to East Carolina University, she started teaching group classes and bootcamps (when she wasn’t in school earning her degree in Elementary Education). Even after graduating from college and while teaching fourth grade, Tricia continued to teach her beloved classes. While Tricia doesn’t teach school anymore, she schools our members with her intense Barre classes. When she’s not at the barre, Tricia enjoys going for long runs with her daughter (Her daughter in the stroller, of course, but we’re guessing not for long.) and meeting friends for outdoor play dates. While most kids were eating dirt and playing hopscotch, Lindsay Jackson was grand jeté-ing around the playground. And her dance training served her well. After graduating from high school, Lindsay took to traveling the seas, dancing professionally for Regent Seven Seas and Princess Cruise Lines. Throughout her years as a professional dancer, Lindsay kept hearing about this “Pilates” thing and how it helps dancers with flexibility, control, balance, and strength. Eventually, she decided to take a Pilates class. And, well, the rest is history. She became a certified Pilates instructor and is the owner of Coastal Body Studio in Charleston, SC.
