Our Team

Lindsay Newlin, Instructor/Owner

Lindsay began her Pilates "journey" in August 2010. Eight months pregnant with a toddler in tow, she broke her ankle walking down the back steps on the way to teach a group fitness class at the gym. Post-boot and postpartum she decided to give Mat Pilates a try. Immediately she fell in love with the method and results. 


In 2013, Lindsay began an apprenticeship with Master Pilates Instructor, Jenny Freeman, at THE STUDIO at Johnson & Hayes. It was under Jenny's training and observation that she learned to teach efficient and safe movement on the Pilates Reformer. Jenny was particularly passionate about training special populations, and we strive to continue her legacy at Pilates South. 

Lindsay opened Pilates South in January 2018. We are forever grateful to Scott Johnson & Todd Hayes of Johnson & Hayes for helping make this possible. 

Lindsay is a Balanced Body Comprehensively Certified Pilates Teacher, and Nationally Certified Pilates Teacher (NCPT). Other certifications/training includes: ACSM Certified Personal Trainer, ACE Group Fitness Instructor, and TRX Group Training. Lindsay loves teaching anyone how to move better. She particularly loves working with persons who are post-rehab looking to restore their active lifestyles.

Lindsay is an Auburn University grad (War Eagle!) which is where she met her amazing husband (and Pilates South maintenance-man) Mike. They have 3 wonderful children (Joseph, Anna Paige, and Benjamin), 1 dog (Lucy), and 1 cat (Olive).
