Starting in ballet, gymnastics, and yoga at the age of six, movement has always been a big part of Aja's life. She spent her childhood and teen years at the ballet studio almost everyday for hours, which began to strain her body. At the age of twelve, she started experiencing hip pain during dancing and throughout the day. Her mom encouraged her to try Pilates, and after four private sessions, she saw a huge difference in not only the pain but also with a new found core strength and body awareness. Not only did her dancing improve, but the way she moved started to change. Supplementing ballet with Pilates became the new normal. Soon it became more than a supplement, as she started to become very passionate about it.Following the completion of the Balanced Body comprehensive instructor training program, Aja is excited to share her knowledge and passion with the world. Pilates has changed her life, through incredible exercises that help relieve pain by training the body to move in correct alignment while building long and lean muscles. Her goal is to help clients feel amazing through this mind body experience.
