I’m Allie, a certified Pilates instructor based in the Nashville, Tennessee area. I love working with clients who are looking for freedom in their body after an injury or surgery, those who want to move with more intention in everyday life, and those who just want to find JOY in the strength and centering that movement brings! I completed my comprehensive instructor certification through Balanced Body, and I am a Nationally Certified Pilates Teacher (NCPT) through the Pilates Method Alliance.

Now offering virtual Pilates!

In this time of staying home, it’s more important than ever to care for your body and mind. Whether you’re struggling with chronic pain or simply want to try a new workout while you’re at home, I’d love to serve as your guide to beginning or renewing your Pilates practice.

Do you…

… need a new exercise routine after a major life change?

I focus on restoring proper body alignment and correcting muscular compensation patterns that arise from injuries, chronic conditions, or  surgeries.

I have a 12-level scoliosis spinal fusion, and specialize in working with clients who have fusions of any size.

… have scoliosis?

I’m trained in a medically sound Pilates method to help you stay out of pain and safely manage your scoliotic spine.

Let’s figure out what your body needs, talk about your fitness goals, and get you on the path to living your best life!

About Me

I’m a professional writer and a Georgia native. After being diagnosed with scoliosis as a teenager, I underwent a 12-level spinal fusion surgery in 2007. Since then, I’ve continually pursued new knowledge to help me live a pain-free life and take ownership of my health.

I found Pilates while working on a journalism assignment in Nashville, and I quickly realized that I was called to be more than a student of Pilates. I completed Balanced Body’s comprehensive Pilates instructor program under Erin Myers in Nashville, Tennessee.

Pilates has given me a path to healing and has allowed me to celebrate my body’s unique story and capabilities rather than focusing on its limitations. I hope to help others experience that same powerful healing through movement so that they, too, can feel at home in their bodies.

In addition to my Pilates certifications, I hold a degree in Public Relations from the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs!). When I’m not in the studio, you’ll find me exploring Music City with my husband and our dog, reorganizing my closets, crafting, or getting lost in a book.

Let’s get you moving!
