A competitive runner and a figure-skating sports enthusiast respectively, Stacey Armijo and Sandra Lemos have always been physically active. However, it wasn’t until they discovered the Dailey Method’s unique blend of Pilates, ballet, and yoga that both realized their fitness regimens weren’t properly balanced. Both athletes went straight to the source—the method’s founder, Jill Dailey—to kick-start their teacher training, knowing even then that they had found their calling.
Following in Jill’s footsteps, Stacey and Sandra help students of all abilities strengthen and stretch their bodies’ major muscle groups. Their low-impact classes are designed to build up the core muscles, develop long lean muscle, align the spine, and tone lean limbs, all while challenging the mind, body, and spirit to touch their proverbial toes. The instructors focus on proper posture and alignment throughout each class to stave off injury and improve their charges’ ability to walk a tightrope over flames while balancing a stack of books on their heads.
The Dailey Method’s Roseville and Folsom studios are equipped with locker rooms with full showers, and both offer complimentary childcare services. The new location in downtown Sacramento offers weekday power lunch express classes, as well as a full locker room and showers.
