PILATES & ESSENTRICS
Movement that inspires radical self-acceptance
I am strong. I am aware. I am energized. I am standing taller. I am thriving. I am connected. I am capable. I am bold.
I am all in. I am whole. I am Inspired to Move.
All of you is welcome here.
At Inspired to Move you'll find small class sizes, private lessons and virtual options that get you out of your head and into your body. It's time to release the exercise "shoulds" and instead meet yourself where you're at with care and compassion.
BE MORE YOU
You don't have to change who you are to move your body. You don't have to want the same things that other people want. Your body doesn't need fixing.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
Pilates helps me become centred with myself. I feel like myself again. Centred inside myself. I can breathe. Just... all the things. I'm just a better person when it's part of my routine.
I've found the past couple weeks have been some of the most joyful movement moments I can remember! As a 24-year-old (in my "peak") there's this weird extra pressure to push and be intense in movement because 20 year olds "can" or we "should" be able to. Choosing gentle, mindful and meaningful movement with Ashley is a really affirming and powerful choice to make that actually centres what I want rather than what is expected of me.
Listening to the way my body feels vs pushing it to the point of injury or over-exhaustion has always been a struggle of mine. Understanding the importance of finding balance has been a recent mission of mine - and thanks to Ashley I think I've found it. I felt AMAZING after my workout with her! A great mix of building endurance, physical exertion, stretching and toning! Thanks, Ashley!
