Certified Pilates Instructor
GMB Trainer
RYT-200 Yoga Instructor

Ray Humphrey has been a certified Pilates instructor since 2019 and is co-owner of The Pilates Center. Ray began practicing Pilates in 2007 after accumulated injuries from the gym and yoga. During those years as a student, he experienced how Pilates can not only rehabilitate, but lay the proper foundation for all movement. Ray began working with Lee in 2015 and became committed to teaching the original Pilates Method to others.

Ray became a GMB Trainer in 2021. He always wanted to perform more advanced hand balancing poses in yoga, but was unsatisfied with how they were taught in yoga classes. The GMB Method breaks down any complex movement into simpler steps that anyone can do. Each step builds strength and control for more advanced steps. Ray thinks it is a great complement to Pilates and offers either or both to clients.

Ray is also a RYT-200 certified yoga instructor who studied at Yoga Teacher’s College in Bareclona, Spain. He is a certified flexibility & mobility coach. He teaches safe, effective, and long-lasting techniques to increase flexibility and mobility, and alleviate tight muscles in hips, back, hamstrings, and shoulders.
