Kaylee Cahoon


Kaylee Cahoon LMT, BCSI, CPI

Kaylee received her formal Pilates education and certification from Core Dynamics Pilates in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She was first introduced to Pilates as a method of injury prevention for dancers at the North Carolina School of the Arts in 1985. Her exposure and training in other movement therapy modalities such as Feldenkrais Method, Irene Dowd's work, Eric Franklin's work, as well as her own movement explorations, have dramatically enriched her movement based teachings. She is often referred by the medical community for injury prevention, developing core stability, and biomechanical problem solving. Kaylee founded the Franklin School of Performing Arts in 1991 which is still in existence today.

Kaylee is a licensed massage therapist in the state of Tennessee. She is also an internationally Board Certified Structural Integrator (BCSI) via Tom Myers' certification, Kinesis Myofascial Integration (please see the Structural Integration page for more info on this type of work). Kaylee is passionate about mind-body connection and how it relates to overall health and vitality. Her session work blends her movement and massage therapy techniques to create a new method of therapeutic exercise and healing.

Currently Kaylee has launched her own fitness method, SMARTcore™ Method, which encompasses all of her knowledge and experience in movement education. The first home fitness video 'SMARTcore™ on the CoreGlide®' will be released in fall of 2013. Kaylee's approach to fitness is holistic in nature as her work aims to educate bodies in achieving enhanced efficiency and ease of movement and optimal posture through brain mapping and the development of deep physical and spatial awareness. Kaylee has had a life long passion for the mind-body connection and how it relates to overall health and vitality.
Through her experiences of traveling the world as a professional modern dancer, twenty five years of teaching dance to children and teens and working with clients to improve their movement and posture issues and imbalances, Kaylee has developed a keen eye and respect for the human movement potential. She is blessed to have an amazingly supportive husband and two beautiful children that inspire her to continue in her life’s work and passion for movement education. The establishment of the Cool Spring building, the 'Movement Education Center' in 2011 was the incredible fruition of Kaylee’s vision for a home where art and science meet.
