Growing up on the West Coast of BC, Ali was always active in sport; including swimming, snowboarding, and playing soccer. However, a sporting injury changed the direction of her life, Ali found a new approach to fitness through Pilates. The principles of control, breath, and alignment meant not only new challenges physically, but also holistically. Ali moved to England in 2009, where she trained as a Pilates Foundation mat instructor. Returning to Vancouver in 2012, Ali continued her studio training through Balanced Body at Meridian Pilates with Heather Low. She also completed a specialization in pre and postnatal fitness with Carolyne Anthony in 2015, and having recently returned to work after her own maternity leave, Ali brings with her a personal perspective to pre and postnatal Pilates.
Ali has witnessed the positive influence that Pilates has brought not only to herself but to family, friends, and clients. She approaches each session with enthusiasm, knowing that the participants will all benefit from the practice of Pilates.
