In 2000, Alexi first discovered her passion for Pilates at Western Michigan University where she earned her BA in Dance and Psychology. With her background in dance, Pilates felt both natural and challenging. She loved how each class made her feel stronger, more aligned, improved her dance technique and prevented and rehabbed injuries. She was so impressed with Pilates that she became a Stott Pilates Certified Instructor and an ACE Certified Personal Trainer in 2004. After years of teaching Pilates, Alexi wanted to further her education with a Physical Therapist Assistant degree. This degree has fine-tuned her knowledge when working with clients with injuries and post rehabilitation. Alexi is able to integrate her Physical Therapy knowledge and Pilates skills to help clients of all ages create healthy and strong bodies. When not in the studio, she enjoys cooking, bike riding, and traveling with her husband.
