Meet The Team
Owner and STOTT Pilates Instructor
karla Crouch, OTS
An educator at heart, I bring a rich background in teaching and performance to my passion as a Pilates Instructor. I began taking Pilates twenty years ago (between Ballet classes) and fell in love with the mind-body connections then noticed a vast improvement in my posture, alignment, strength, and flexibility! I am currently enrolled in graduate school to become an Occupational Therapist. I plan to create more services offering health and wellness for those in need across the lifespan.
My Pilates sessions and classes allow my clientele to focus on their specific physical needs and goals. There is nothing that I love more than helping others succeed!
I provide my clients with an in-depth understanding of the movement associated with the human body whether they are looking for overall fitness and wellness or seeking relief from chronic pain. I focus on stability, mobility, flexibility, and balance all while getting a well-rounded workout.
I have been certified in STOTT Pilates for over 8 years. I am also a Fascial Movement Instructor, a CORE Athletic Conditioning & Performance Training Instructor, and a Total Barre Instructor. I am happy to incorporate these fitness routines into sessions if my clients are interested.
I live in Edmonds with my wonderful husband and two young, active daughters.
I am the owner of Bodyworks Pilates and Bodyworks Edmonds in downtown Edmonds.
STOTT Pilates Instructor
My name is Grace Morehouse and I am excited to become an instructor at Woodway Wellness! Working out and staying healthy has always been a priority in my life. My first experience with helping people was when I was a chiropractic assistant and learned a lot about posture and how the body works. I developed a passion and dedication to helping others with their fitness journey. Pilates is a holistic form of exercise that improves posture, strength, flexibility, and balance. My central goal is to ensure all clients reach their full potential by giving them the confidence, self-discipline, and skills necessary to improve their quality of life. This goes beyond helping people look the best they ever have, but this also covers their performance, mindset, motivation, and lifestyle. I look forward to establishing long-lasting relationships! I'm currently in the process of getting Certified in Reformer Pilates.

BREATHWORK & REIKI PRACTITIONER,
STOTT PILATES INSTRUCTOR
Annie Senechal is a Breathwork & Reiki Practitioner, STOTT Pilates trained and 200 Hr Certified Yoga Teacher with additonal training in Prenatal Yoga and Meditation. She gravitates toward the natural world and despite being born with a green thumb, she’s more likely to be found in the ocean than on land.
The first time Annie tried a breathwork class, she was on a yoga retreat trying to ignore symptoms of chronic pain. She didn’t know what to expect from the class, but afterward found her pain was gone. Hooked on the power of using breath to become her own healer, she took a David Eliott Breathwork course and became a certified instructor. She is also practiced in the Wim Hof method as well as Kundalini breathing techniques. For the last two years, Annie has shared the gift of breathwork, giving people the tools to calm their mind, ground themselves, and soothe their nervous systems.
Annie’s wellness journey started as a lifelong creative with a professional background in design, photography and brand management. She traveled with the non-profit organization, Go Light Our World to developing communities where she helped lead community-driven events and implemented solar programs. In working with diverse people all over the globe, she deepened her reverence for humanity, and her commitment to the health and welfare of our planet.
Last year, Annie’s interest in environmental sustainability led her to an off-grid community in Costa Rica as part of a Permaculture Design program. Because of her deep-rooted belief in the miraculous healing properties of plants, she is currently studying both Ayurveda and Herbalism. She believes the health of the planet and our personal wellness are intrinsically linked, and hopes to share what she knows with others for the betterment of the whole.
BARRE INSTRUCTOR/BODYWORKS (PHOTO CREDIT: LINDSAY THOMAS
I started dancing when I was 4 years old and from the very beginning I loved it. When I was 13 years old I knew I wanted to become a professional ballet dancer. I trained at Westside Ballet Academy in Santa Monica California then moved to Seattle when I was 17 years old to train in the professional division at Pacific Northwest Ballet School. In 2000 I was able to fulfill my dream of becoming a professional dancer and joined Pacific Northwest Ballet. I retired as a soloist in 2016 and will forever be grateful for the time I spent dancing. After I retired I was in search of movement that felt good for my body and incorporated the mind/body connection like dance does. I found that barre was just the workout I needed. I became certified through Booty Barre, by renowned Tracey Mallet, as well as Barreabove. I have found a new passion in instructing barre and motivating others to safely push their bodies and to get the most out of each barre class.

STOTT Pilates Instructor
I fell in love with Pilates six years ago after having my second son and experiencing chronic back pain. I found that the training I received in my Pilates sessions became such a functional part of my everyday life, improving my posture, strength, breathing, and reducing my pain. I have since become a long-distance runner, currently training for my fourth half marathon. Pilates has been a key part of training and injury prevention by improving my hip mobility, glute and core strength, and my breath.
I love helping my clients achieve their goals and tailor each session to their needs with a focus on strength, mobility, and flexibility while providing a fun and approachable environment.
I live in Richmond Beach with my three (energetic!) boys and our dog Scout.

Owner of The Ignited Soul, Nurse Intuitive Energy Practitioner
Mary ann Stancel
I’m passionate about creating space to help people heal themselves and live in their truth. That’s right, I’m a nurse who has worked in western medicine, and who provides energy healing through modalities of reiki, light language oracle cards, earth energy, guided meditation, breathwork, crystal, sound bowls, mindfulness, and more! It is great to combine both areas of Eastern and Western, to bring a well-rounded healing experience. I can energetically tap into your body ailments to provide healing energy to those areas.
What I really enjoy is helping people find the deep soul connection and then guiding them to release the trapped energy. As this happens, vibrational shifts occur and in turn, they feel free to live in their truth. Their authentic self begins to shine and be alive.
You’ll often see me playing with my Australian Labradoodle, Miles Davis, out in nature, LAUGHING A LOT, having fun with friends and my partner, connecting with Spirit, God, Universe, and my guides + angels, exploring the world, holding crystals, loving the world of energy and believing in that with LOVE, you can break away the bonds of trauma, fear, and the self-imposed negative talk.
You have the power the heal.
I will be offering Sound Healing Sessions at Woodway Wellness.
My training includes: Usui Reiki Master, Kundalini Reiki Master, Seichim Reiki Master, Breathwork facilitator, Sound Bath healer, Certified Hypnotherapist, Mindfulness facilitator, Registered Nurse, 200 PYTT
