PMA® Certified Pilates Teacher
Alayna first experienced Pilates through workout DVDs in an effort to cross-train for ballet. She later discovered its rehabilitative potential, relying on Pilates mat and reformer classes to heal a back injury while working on her BFA in Dance at Belhaven University. Her time as a dancer also introduced her to the GYROTONIC® method, and she immediately fell in love with its fluid nature and the inherent challenge of spinal mobility.
"Alayna is a great instructor and truly professional. She shows up on time and is always pleasant and friendly. She gets to know her clients, helps them set appropriate goals, and is encouraging. She tailors each of her sessions to suit her clients’ needs. She is by far my favorite Pilates instructor.” ~ Emily, 40s, Educator
Not one to take things slowly, Alayna started her apprenticeships simultaneously in both Pilates and the GYROTONIC® method upon her move to Austin in early 2017. She will bridge into the Somaspace Classical Pilates Apprenticeship in June of 2018.
Alayna enjoys working with a diverse range of clients. Her keen eye ensures even the most challenging exercises are executed with proper technique. Movement has always been a joyful experience for Alayna, and she is inspired to help clients experience the same feel-good freedom in their own bodies.
