Power Pilates Certified
In 2000, Alexis accidentally took a Pilates class. As a type-A corporate sales leader and marathoner, Pilates taught her the art of slowing down and truly connecting with her body through breath, concentration, and graceful movement. Six years later, Alexis became Power Pilates certified and has worked throughout North Carolina, Washington D.C., and New York City. Coupled with a strong mindfulness practice, she started to see massive improvements in her intuition, creativity, ability to focus and “not sweating the small stuff”. Inspired, she pursued more certifications as a Nutritionist, Holistic Health Coach, Reiki Master, Intuition Coach, and Corporate Based Mindfulness Instructor. After successfully launching a mindfulness program at a Fortune 50 company, Alexis felt called to leave New York City and her corporate sales leadership role. Nine months later, she lives in Graton with her partner (whom she met on the day she left) and owns her dream business.
