Ashley is classically trained through Peak Pilates. As a former dancer and movement therapist, Ashley is passionate about all things movement. Her experience with Pilates is reflected in the Joseph Pilates quote, “Change happens through movement and movement heals.” Ashley began practicing Pilates to alleviate back pain, gain core strength and find peace of mind. She quickly experienced relief from her chronic back pain and realized that Pilates replaced her need for physical therapy exercises. She also experienced the psychological benefits such as increased body awareness. Ashley has a MA in Dance/Movement Therapy and Counseling and enjoys spending time outdoors such as hiking, swimming and snowboarding. She also enjoys dancing, reading and spending time with family and friends.
