Buy Blane Ashby a coffee


Hey, I just created a page for Buy Me A Coffee! I have a free Fundamentals/Beginning class you can access through the Post tab. And a few other Pilates classes you can access! To be updated if there is interest.

I have been practicing and studying Pilates since 1998 and was certified through the Ellie Herman Pilates Institute in 2002. From 2003 to present has been a Master Instructor of the Teacher Training Instructor Program (TTIP) at the Ellie Herman Pilates Institute acting as co-head of the program. In 2007, I became a Balanced Body Master Instructor. Though I now calls Portland my home, I am currently Lead Master Instructor and Education Programmer at EHS Pilates Studio in San Francisco. As an educator, I have trained instructors locally, across the United States and internationally. My students have gone on to great success and now teach all over the globe. I also have had the honor and pleasure of contributing to many of Balanced Body’s curriculum developments and presenting at Balanced Body’s highly acclaimed Pilates On Tour (POT). I co-owned Parkside Pilates in San Francisco (with Lizz Roman) from 2005 - 2017. Along with one-to-one fitness training I specialize in injury prevention and recovery. I have had much success in assisting and creating programs for clients in their post recovery and injury prevention goals. I also teach Pilates based group classes. In my classes I promote a non-competitive atmosphere while challenging the student to reach their fullest potential. Focus of the classes include precision, control, stability, core strength, increasing flexibility all the while promoting enjoyment and a sense of accomplishment. Pilates can be quite challenging but should be fun too!
