Raleigh Veach Busser
Raleigh was first introduced to the Pilates Method at age 11 as a cross training for Ballet. As a dancer in high school at North Carolina School of the Arts, she began working the various Pilates Apparatus and Equipment. And finally in 2009 she became a certified Pilates instructor. Throughout this journey she has taught various forms of dance and fitness, and currently holds certifications in Pilates Apparatus & Mat, Healthy Moms Perinatal Fitness, Power Plate, TRX, and Megaformer, among others.
From dancing to choreographing to teaching, Raleigh has always been fascinated by movement, anatomy and the capabilities of every unique individual body. The most rewarding aspect of teaching is working with clients and students to discover not only their full potential but watching them better understand their "own body" to achieve their fitness goals. Raleigh's meticulousness on form, quality and flow are demonstrated in all her classes and sessions with an encouraging smile and an energetic attitude!
Raleigh was born and raised in Nashville, TN and graduated with a B.F.A. in dance and a minor in Anthropology from SUNY Purchase. She has performed with reputable choreographers and dance companies in New York City and abroad and is founder of Locomotive Artistries, a modern dance company. She has a wonderful husband, Rick, who was her first Pilates test subject when attaining her certification, and a beautiful son Miles, who has been a Pilates Pro since the womb (his favorite Reformer exercise ... Rowing).
