Speed Up By Slowing Down Through Pilates
Chelsea Streifeneder

Mirbeau resort

September 18 – 20


Are you overwhelmed by your To-Do List?
Are you stressed and frazzled everyday?
Are you at the bottom of your priority list?

If you’re nodding your head thinking that describes you to a tee, it’s time to take back control of your life.

Pilates Method Alliance® Certified Expert, speaker, and the proud owner of Body Be Well Pilates in Red Hook and Catskill NY, Chelsea Streifeneder takes you on a journey to remake your life from the inside out through Pilates.

Chelsea’s elite clientele includes celebrities, athletes and dancers who are drawn to her hands-on, warm-hearted, fun, practical approach. Chelsea’s style of teaching is not to help people become a size “0”, but to be able to live a balanced healthy lifestyle and to inspire and motivate people to move. . She understands diet and exercise advice must be realistic for it to work. Her goal is to help you figure out what is most important to you and use your positive mental energy to turn those goals into a reality.  She will teach you tips and tricks you can incorporate into your daily life to make wellness a priority while still having time for your other responsibilities.

With over a decade of experience in her field, Chelsea helps clients learn concepts as opposed to simply teaching exercises. She works to tailor each session to a client’s individual needs and goals. She inspires her clients to take away what they learn in their sessions and apply it to their everyday lives.

Chelsea began her career as a Pilates teacher in Los Angeles after graduating with a B.A. in Writing and Dance from Bard College. Chelsea became a Pilates believer by experiencing it transform her own body. This transformation fueled her desire to learn and share this method with others. Her fist book, “Studio Shape Up” will be published February 12, 2019 and she is a frequent contributor to Prevention, Womens Health and Pilates Style Magazine.

always challenged, never bored

I’ve been a client of Chelsea’s for almost ten years. I have never met a more careful and conscientious trainer.  She has been most helpful in dealing with my personal goals and symptoms. Whatever life has thrown at me she is able to modify and vary my sessions so I am always challenged, never bored and always learning and growing.

Nurture & Nature

We’re here to nurture you inside and out, with nutritious meals and serene surroundings.


The Mirbeau Dining Room offers global cuisine inspired by French speaking populations around the world. We use classic methods and source local, Finger Lakes organic, and regional produce, dairy and meats and focus on clean cuisine—no synthetics or preservatives–with healthful interpretations of classic French dishes.

Wellness & Spa

Lounge or nap in the resting room with heated foot pool, take in the herbal infused saunas, steam rooms, or the heated whirlpool spa with private bar in the Aqua Terrace. Also, take a complimentary exercise or yoga class or work out in the fitness center.

Mirbeau Resort

Mirbeau, loosely translated as “reflected beauty,” is inspired in part by the soft light, warm colors and introspective character found in the paintings of renowned French Impressionist Claude Monet. Mirbeau Inn & Spa was designed to evoke the warmth and comfort of a private French wine country estate and give you the feeling that you have truly “gotten away” even if you are only a few miles from home.

The Inn and its surrounding buildings and special gardens call to mind an old-world blend of casual elegance, unique and interesting architecture and classic pleasures. The chateau-like Inn and Spa buildings, including the four freestanding Cottages, replicate a private country estate that curves gracefully around the beautiful gardens and ponds inspired by Monet’s own gardens in Giverny, near Paris.


“Everyone is the architect of their own happiness.” – Joseph Pilates
