The Belly Team
Arlene Corcoran, MFA, CPT
Studio Owner & Master Instructor
Arlene came to Pilates and her current Myofascial practice after a lifetime of battling with chronic pain. Through her work she has been able not only to manage, but to overcome what was once a debilitating struggle. She received her Pilates education through The Kane School in New York City (now Kinected Pilates Center) in 2006, and opened her own studio here in Tucson in 2008. Since starting her own practice, Arlene has studied with Brent Anderson, Marie Jose Blom, Karen Clippinger, Amy Taylor Alpers, Anna Marie Vitali and many others. In addition to Classic Pilates Equipment & Mat, Arlene's primary training focused on Anatomy and Special Needs/Special Populations. This expanded knowledge allowed her to fully understand how she had rid herself of her lifetime pain patterns and achieved true fitness and health. This history informs her eclectic program at The Belly Studio to this day.
Rachel Delozier, BA, PMa cpt
Rachel has been training at The Belly Studio since 2014. After almost a year of working as a client, Rachel decided to take the plunge and become an instructor. She graduated from the University of Arizona with a Bachelors Degree in Art History and Classics in 2014 and received her PMA Pilates Certification in 2017.
Cora beckett, ba
Cora has been learning and collaborating with The Belly Studio since 2015. While filming a short documentary about the journey of one of the studio’s clients, Cora fell in love with Arlene’s post-rehabilitation methodology. Arlene’s technique has given Cora the tools to manage and correct her own health issues including hypermobility, scoliosis and physical trauma due to multiple car accidents. She is currently studying to receive her Pilates Method Alliance (PMA) Certification. She graduated from the University of Arizona with a major in Film & Television and a minor in Gender and Women’s Studies.
Patty has always been interested in exercise and fitness. But once she discovered the Pilates Method, it became a passion. She completed her extensive training at the renowned Pilates Center in Boulder, CO, and has been teaching in a variety of contexts since 2004. Besides her PMA certification, she is certified in TRX, Yoga, and as a personal trainer. She finds a deep gratification in helping people remedy physical problems and increase their overall fitness.
