30/30 Barre & Pilates Mat: All Level


This class is taught by:

Alyssa Beerger

 
~ Barre Instructor
 
Alyssa was exposed to dance at a very young age, and instantly fell in love with the arts. She studied Classical Ballet from age 5-15 at a local Ballet school in Chestnut hill, and then became interested in musical theatre and classical singing. Alyssa followed her passion for singing, and attended Loyola University of New Orleans receiving a Bachelor’s of Music from Loyola in 2011. During her time in New Orleans, Alyssa would attend barre and yoga classes. She grew to love the studio lifestyle, and soon realized she wanted to teach Barre classes.
 
Alyssa completed her Balanced Body Barre certification in April of 2013 and has been teaching at Twisters ever since. Alyssa’s classes are upbeat, and set to a fast paced, pop soundtrack. Her goal is to have her students build strength, gain flexibly, confidence in themselves, and have a little fun while doing it in a friendly atmosphere.

Michele went on the get her Nursing Degree and after having three daughters, got back into dance by taking classes at Steps on Broadway, Broadway Dance Center, Bucks County Dance Center and Koresh Dance Company. With two of her three daughters seriously studying dance, Michele returned to teaching and choreography. She was introduced to Pilates and immediately fell in love. Michele is passionate about Pilates because of the attention to proper body alignment and core strengthening – consistent with dance.

Ashley M. Walton is a Saint Joe's grad with a Bachelor Degree in Biology. She spent 10 years testing and preparing blood for hospitals throughout the Tri-state area. Ashley switched from a medical career to a career in which she can prevent the need for medical attention. She went back to school to receive her Associate Degree in Exercise Science, as well as several certifications for personal training.
 
Ashley has been a Certified Personal Trainer for five years. She fell in love with Pilates after being told she had shrunk an inch and a half. Pilates felt better than the chiropractor! Pilates actually helped her gain back her inch and a half! Pilates has helped Ashley's clients and students work through sports injuries and arthritis. New mothers have enjoyed watching their abs get back to normal.
 
Ashley has now been teaching Pilates and Group Exercise for two years. She decided to complete the Peak Pilates Comprehensive program this year to get a Classical understanding of Pilates.
