A mover all her life, Ashley Ayers holds a BA in Modern Dance from Kennesaw State University in Atlanta, Georgia. Ashley moved to New York to pursue a performing career in dance and acting shortly after graduating college. Her love for Pilates began as a young ballet dancer after being introduced to the method by several physical therapists. Pilates quickly became an integral part of the treatment of several injuries and continues to act as an invaluable supplement to her dance training. After experiencing Pilates’ success in her own body, Ashley decided to share her fulfillment by becoming an instructor herself. She began her teacher training with STOTT Pilates and is currently completing her full certification through the Kane School of Core Integration, located in New York City. Ashley passionately believes in a direct connection between movement and overall wellness, and this belief is reflected in her therapeutic, health-centered approach to Pilates technique.
