Currie Gossett
I fell in love with Pilates almost 20 years ago after an unfortunate back injury and quickly realized it was a movement principle that I had to do for the rest of my life.  My favorite part about it is that its benefits are endless, and can be tailored to every body, every level, and every skill.  Movement for me is about self-care and connecting to my mind and my breath in my otherwise hectic lifestyle.  
Our goal at C.O.R.E. is to help people feel like the best versions of themselves, even if just a tiny bit, every time they walk out of our doors.  I am most excited about creating a special place where people not only connect to community, but more importantly, to their selves and their own hearts.  Sometimes by slowing down and being purposeful in our whole-body health, we can actually go further in reaching our goals.

Laura McKenna
As powerful and graceful as yoga and yoga sculpt are, what I enjoy the most is how quickly and effortlessly they help me reset mentally. My goal is to help students unwind, disconnect from their busy routines and be fully present doing one thing at a time. Off the mat you can find me sipping an iced latte or with my pup and husband at Community Tap!

Brenda Weyl

Brenda, along with her husband and fur-kids relocated to the Greenville area in 2018 after having lived most of her adult life in Atlanta.  Prior to undertaking a career in Pilates, she served as an operations executive in the communications and healthcare industries while maintaining fitness through Pilates, yoga, strength training and frequent hiking.  Her commitment to Pilates was born of a desire to continue to build physical strength and endurance despite joint issues and chronic muscle injuries. Her passion for Pilates took root after she left the corporate world and began to realize its significant rehabilitation capabilities and ability to promote spinal flexibility and full body movement. As she progressed, her passion deepened for bringing the many benefits of Pilates to individuals as well group fitness environments. 

She was awarded a 500-hour Pilates instructor certification by Club  Pilates and has consistently taught both private and group reformer and mat classes since. Brenda is also certified to teach Barre and enjoys bringing elements of this discipline to her Pilates flows. Her primary teaching goals are to inspire in others a commitment to Pilates-based breath and movement as primary vehicles for building life enhancing core strength, muscle flexibility and overall stability. She works to bring a sense of wonder and fun to each class she teaches.

Emma Finly Alonso
Emma began her journey into fitness through alpine ski-racing during her time at Killington Mountain School. She went on to earn a BS in Exercise Physiology at West Virginia University.  During college, she completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training with Charleston Power Yoga in Charleston, SC and an additional 100 hours with Baron Baptiste in Sedona, AZ.

While finishing her degree, Emma participated in a 200-hour internship with the Pilates Studio of Morgantown. She was instantly hooked and completed her first 500 hour comprehensive certification through Balanced Body in 2015.  Her study of the Pilates system continued with a second 500 hour comprehensive certification through Peak Pilates in 2018.  Soon after, she
studied pre & postnatal Pilates with Fusion Pilates in Asheville, NC. In 2023, she began a third comprehensive certification: classical Pilates progressions with Karen Frischmann. In addition to formal trainings, Emma regularly participates in continuing education workshops and private lessons.

Emma continues to practice, learn, teach, and specialize in Classical Pilates, a distinct style that aims to adhere as closely as possible to the exercises, sequences, and intentions of the system’s creator, Joseph Pilates. Her passion for the “classical” form of Pilates was forever cemented when, after suffering a debilitating back injury, she learned firsthand its restorative power. Joseph Pilates’ system of exercises allowed a safe, targeted, and methodical recovery.

Emma hopes to bring all of these benefits to her clients so that they become the strongest versions of themselves.
