Mary Herrera

Mary started Pilates as a way to break up her fitness routine and intense nights at the library during college. After graduating from IUPUI, she suffered a leg injury during a soccer game that challenged her mobility for almost 9 months. Once recovered, Mary came back to Pilates as a way to regain her strength, balance, and flexibility. Falling in love with Pilates all over again and finding a new love for barre, Mary went on to get her Bar Effect Certification in 2015 and Peak Pilates Basic Mat Certification in 2016. Mary is excited to continue her journey with Pilates equipment in 2017.

Bailey Croke

Developing a passion for ballet at a young age, movement has always been a fundamental part of Bailey's life. She spent many years studying different forms of dance and participating in intensives, workshops, performances and competitions to further her training. After graduating from Indiana University and entering the working world, Bailey quickly fell in love pilates, yoga, and barre classes to keep up the activity and discipline that she had with dance. In 2013, she took a step back into the dance world and discovered a surprising new passion in teaching. Wanting to explore that further, Bailey decided to bring her love for pilates and teaching together and completed the Peak Pilates Certification in June 2015. As an enthusiastic Pilates instructor, Bailey loves to teach a challenging and revitalizing class to help students challenge their core, balance, flexibility and strength to improve overall movement quality, mind/body connection and physical vitality.

Alba Fernandez-Keys

Alba took her first Pilates class in 2003 and yoga soon after that while searching a low-impact alternative to Brazilian Capoeira. The transition felt very natural as the mindfulness, grace and precision inherent in martial arts transferred seamlessly into a mat practice. She soon found that the Classical Pilates flow was not only extremely challenging but also a beautiful moving meditation. Alba believes that movement keeps the body healthy and teaches us to become sensitive to its changing needs. Her love for Pilates led her to pursue comprehensive (mat and reformer) training through Peak Pilates. She completed her Level 2 certification in early 2016. When not on the mat or reformer you will most likely find Alba riding her bicycle or walking her two mastiffs.
