Leah Ousley – Owner, Instructor
Leah is an Auburn University graduate and worked in sales for a variety of companies, but left corporate America in 2010 to teach movement and fitness. Her personal journey with Pilates began while recovering from an invasive surgery to re-sect a brain tumor that left her with severe balance, instability and coordination issues. Pilates played a crucial role in her recovery back to a normal life. She now leads a very active lifestyle and participates in numerous fitness activities.
Leah completed her Pilates certification through BASI and has been teaching full time since 2010. She’s taken numerous continuing education courses and has a variety of certifications including her most recent as a Posture Alignment Specialist certified through Egoscue University. She was introduced to this modality in 2016 and realized it provided a missing link in her Pilates work with clients. Education is critical in changing movement patterns and to keep clients out of pain. Posture Alignment therapy offers this in the first session.
She takes pride in relating to her clients in a beneficial way that they can understand, which enables them to recognize that the body works as one functioning unit. Clients motivate her daily and watching them improve their overall health and live with less pain provides Leah with immense gratification.
