Leah

Certified Pilates Instructor & Client Care Specialist

Meet Leah. She’s been a Pilates instructor since 2019 and started with private sessions at our West Austin location during her certification. When our East location opened in Fall of 2020, Leah began teaching both Pilates classes and private sessions there. She completed her Balanced Body Comprehensive Pilates Certification in 2022. 

Leah thinks that Pilates can enhance body awareness which is useful in daily activities, whether inside or outside the studio. Pilates can strengthen the body, prevent or heal injuries, and maintain efficient body movement for a long time. 

She enjoys the challenge of practicing Pilates, as there’s always room for improvement in how the body moves. 

If you’re a beginner in Pilates, Leah suggests not feeling intimidated by the equipment or techniques. She advises taking your time to become familiar with the equipment and starting with classes that focus on the fundamental principles of Pilates. Pilates is a workout that suits all fitness levels, and good instructors can modify the exercises to ensure your comfort and safety. The key is to appreciate the way your body moves.

Leah has an energetic and athletic teaching style that keeps the class moving at a faster pace. She maintains a positive tempo while emphasizing technique, alignment, and safety for her clients’ movements.

Her goal is to leave clients feeling energized, challenged, and excited to return to class. She loves it when clients tell her that class was tough but went by fast!
