Cyndie Klein

Owner: Love Your Core Pilates & More, Certified Master Pilates Instructor

Cyndie's been married for 31 years to her husband Pierre and they have a total of five children. She grew up here in Southern California dancing in her aunts ballet studio which is where her love of dance and movement developed.

In the year 2000, at 36 and after having her first baby, she took a Pilates session and instantly became addicted. In 2001 she trained with Marie Jose' Bloom at Long Beach Dance and Conditioning and after teaching Pilates for 4 years, Cyndie opened her first studio in 2006 with her vision of bringing affordable Reformer Pilates to as many people as she could. She opened her studio with 8 reformers and was one of the first studios here in the South Bay to offer group Reformer classes.

She is so excited to co-own Love Your Core Pilates & More with her business partner Patty Goeppner and to be working along side all the truly talented instructors here at LYC.

What Cyndie loves most about Pilates is her belief that absolutely anyone can do Pilates, no matter what their age or ailments, movement through Pilates is possible for everyone!


Patty Goeppner

Owner: Love Your Core Pilates & More,

Certified Pilates Instructor

Patty was born and raised in the South Bay and has been married to her husband Jonathan for 24 years. They have 4 children, all living in Southern California. Patty transitioned from a 25 year career in financial planning to Pilates at the suggestion of her close friend, and now business partner, Cyndie Klein. With personal one on one training from Cyndie, a Master Pilates Instructor, and in combination with a formal teacher training program, Patty became Certified as a Pilates Instructor in early 2017. Prior to Pilates, Patty was a formally trained ballet dancer for over 8 years. She has been attracted to fitness for most of her life and due to an early diagnosis of scoliosis and hyper-mobility, staying fit has been critical to being pain free. 

With the help and support from the highly experienced teachers at Love Your Core and the strong team behind them, Patty and her co-owner Cyndie Klein, took the leap and decided to purchase Love Your Core Pilates & More in May 2019.

Patty is a true believer that exercise and fitness is the path to a sound body and the practice of Pilates is the path to complete coordination of body, mind and spirit, no matter how young or old.
