Anita Grew up in Sweden,and as she would tell you: it means you’re practically outdoors year around, staying active is second nature along with eating healthy and balanced. After working in the Airlines as a flight attendant along with birthing four children she developed a few injuries in her neck as well as her upper back. She often suffered from Migraines, neck and back pain. She was introduced to Pilates 16 years ago by a physical therapist she knew she had found her true passion, her body responded so well that her chronic pain went away, her back straightened itself out and she today has a better posture than she did in her 20’s. After seeing the results and loving Pilates, she got certified as a Third generation traditional Pilates Instructor as well as an Integrative Nutritional Health Coach and to top it off she recently got certified to teach Barre as well.
Being a South Bay local, Alexandra is all to familiar with the endless options for fitness in the area. She started her fitness journey 9 years ago when she took her first Pilates and Barre classes. Since then she has received her certifications in both Classical Pilates and Barre. Over the last few years she has had clients come in with severe sciatica, scoliosis, spinal fusion surgery, double knee replacements, herniated discs, chronic pain & fatigue, pinched nerves, degenerative disc disorder, osteoporosis, Parkinson’s, lupus, and arthritis. Through Pilates they have been able to achieve some pretty amazing things whether it be minimizing the symptoms, rehabilitation, and even in some cases full remission. Alexandra loves to create classes that provide the perfect balance between classical and contemporary methods, safely challenging and motivating all clients to achieve their goals.
Kim's barre fitness career began when she attended her first barre class over 8 years ago and fell in love with the workout. After 3 years as a dedicated (some might say obsessed) client, she decided to turn her passion for barre into a career and became a certified barre instructor. Over the past 5 years, she's taught for Cardio Barre, EverBarre, Barre Hub, and Ohana Dance. When she's not at the barre, Kim enjoys tennis and a glass of wine with friends.
I found a love for movement at a very young age, originally through dance and figure skating. My love for fitness quickly expanded into an interest in health and wellness! Which inevitably brought me to yoga and it was love at first sight. Through yoga, I discovered a love for myself that I never believed I could achieve. My goal through teaching is to inspire and impact others the way my first yoga class did. I want to help people find an outlet for the struggles we face in life and show them that the best way to do that is to look inward and learn to start loving yourself. That is what this practice has done for me, why I have fallen so hard for it, and why I want to teach it to others.
