The Dailey Method effectively strengthens, tones and lengthens the entire body. All movement is controlled and very focused, effective, and safe. Proper alignment is our primary focus. Each set of exercises is followed by a series of active stretches to develop more sculpted and supple muscles. The entire body and mind are constantly working throughout class. Through this process one’s body, posture, and physical awareness will be transformed! 

The Dailey Method Nashville is owned and operated by Kimberly Rose and Sophia M. Clanton. Kim first discovered The Dailey Method in Chicago as a client in early 2010. She quickly developed a passion for the method and readily became an ambassador of this amazing workout in her community.  Before moving to Nashville, Kim had been a part of the Dailey Method team in Chicago, excelling in operations and customer relations. Since 2011, Kim has survived both breast cancer and a shattered ankle. She has specific insight into how the Dailey Method can be an avenue to quicker recovery, both physically and mentally. She brings this insight to the Nashville studio, encouraging clients to rise above limitations and work to their fullest potentials. Kim is responsible for day to day operations, customer service and above all, client satisfaction.
