Pilates Fundamentals - Level 1/2


This class is taught by:

Abby Hall

When Abby attended her first Pilates class after graduating college and moving to Indianapolis it was love at first sight! A perfect change of pace from her usual gym and running routine, after a few classes she was hooked. She loved how she felt after each and every class, and the noticeable changes in muscle definition and tone were not bad either! While gearing up for her wedding and starting a new job, a co-worker introduced her to Invoke Studio, and Abby’s heart was stolen once more by their Bar Effect™ classes. Pushing her body at each class felt great, but the evident increase in strength and endurance left her wanting more. Wishing to inspire this enthusiasm of Pilates and Bar Effect™ into others, Abby jumped at the idea of becoming a teacher! Learning more with each class and through personal practice, she loves up-beat, high energy classes that will really push your body and make you feel the burn! Abby recently trained with Balanced Body and is also a Registered Dietitian. She truly believes in the phrase “everything in moderation…except for planks, which you can never do enough!”

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.
Pilates fundamentals covers the traditional pilates exercises developed by Joseph Pilates. The class is designed for all levels with building blocks offered to those new to pilates. Experienced students will be challenged with advanced variations of exercises. All students will benefit from the focus on alignment and postural cues. The class utlizes pilates rings, therabands, and handweights for some exercises.
