Amy Alexander, the owner of Metamorphosis Pilates & Bodywork, was led through her own health and wellness journey to become a personal trainer in 2007. Pilates came in 2012 when the gym she worked at offered a Peak Pilates training. By the time she finished her Level I instructor training three months later, Pilates had changed her body and she was seeing the changes in her clients. Amy’s background prior to Pilates included a regimen of weight training. She’d competed in bench press competitions as an adult and threw shotput and played soccer at a younger age. All of that resulted in muscular imbalances that caused tightness and some pain. Pilates helped her to get stronger in all the right places, attain more balance in her body, to improve her posture, and to have less pain and tightness.
Metamorphosis Pilates & Bodywork, Inc opened April 23, 2018 in a temporary space at 268 Main Street in East Aurora. Memorial Day weekend was when sessions moved into the full studio. The studio is meant to be a space that feels private and calm, so that you can step out of your hectic life and focus on you. You will head back into your day recharged, feeling better for the time you carved out to take care of you.
To ensure smooth sailing in the studio, our private and duo sessions include time for cleanup, scheduling, payment, etc. Hour sessions are generally 50 minutes of work, half hour sessions are generally 25 minutes of work. You will be asked to remove your shoes upon entering the studio. That ensures a more sanitary environment for our clients who may be barefoot.
