Certified Pilates Instructor
Ashley Rhianne was first introduced to pilates after a car accident in 2004, and has incorporated many of the principle foundations in her warm up, training, and dance education as an international oriental dancer and instructor. She jumped at the chance to learn more at Full Circle Studio where she completed her Level One Stott Pilates certification for mat and all apparatus. As a professional oriental dancer and instructor, studying pilates has been the perfect match to influence her unique style of teaching and training. Ashley Rhianne loves the benefits of pilates for spinal, pelvic floor and muscle health and also for the fitness aspect. On her travels abroad she can often be seen working out with pilates-based exercises in airports at empty gates during long layovers! Pilates is something she takes with her everywhere she goes!
In addition to being a dancer, she also holds a diploma from Capilano University as a rehabilitation assistant and has been working in both acute care and research as a physiotherapy & research assistant. She has worked in many aspects of the medical system including cardiac and intensive care, orthopedics and with chronic lung disease patients. She also graduated with her degree in Rehabilitation in 2012 from the University of Calgary.
She is very excited about joining the team at Club Pilates and can't wait to see you on the reformer!
