We love a good mom boss story and Align Pilates and Wellness is nothing short of that. Founded by two moms, Amanda Hauer and Jennifer Shukofsky, Align specializes in pre & postnatal Pilates AND all 9:00 AM, 10:00 AM, and 12:00 PM classes on Mondays through Fridays are Bring Your Own Baby classes!
Babies are also welcome to join their mamas at all private sessions. Do moms know moms, or what?
Align also offers holistic health and wellness coaching in addition to their challenging, diverse, and fun classes.
I took my first-ever Pilates reformer class at Align Pilates and Wellness. When I walked in, I was impressed by the beautiful and clean space. I immediately felt more comfortable knowing it was a small class of only four people. As a first-timer, I would be lost (and possibly injured!) in a big class. Amanda was patient with me and provided lots of adjustments. The workout was INTENSE! It is a full body workout with emphasis on core strength. I was shaking throughout... and at the end... and the next day!
But I loved it.
This would be a great workout for all women, but I could see how it would be extremely beneficial postpartum. Nothing gets your abdominal muscles working like Pilates! And working with professionals who are specifically trained in postpartum fitness is so important!
