Amy Lessner

Amy’s introduction to Pilates began several years ago while training for a half marathon. As a former competitive gymnast, she was looking for a form of exercise that demanded the mind/body connection that gymnastics provided for many years. Amy quickly found that when performed correctly through body alignment and precise movement, Pilates could be extremely challenging and equally soothing to the body and mind.

Enthusiastic about working with people from all different backgrounds and abilities, Amy truly believes a Pilates program can benefit each person physically and mentally. Her own practice has been an outlet for pain and stress relief from many work days sitting at a desk. She is excited to introduce it as a compliment to any fitness regimen.

Outside of teaching, Amy is an avid runner, rock climber, and paddle boarder. In the summer months, you can find her outside on the water. Amy holds a degree in  Kinesiology and Sports Management from James Madison University and she is Polestar Pilates, certified instructor.
