And welcome to Heights Pilates. I'm Allison, a movement devotee who fell in love with the method as soon as I discovered it over 15 years ago. I have been teaching Pilates since 2010 and knew I wanted to fuse my creativity and business background to open a studio one day. Heights Pilates is the embodiment of my journey as a classical Pilates instructor, athlete, student, curious mover, art absorber and lifelong learner. I wanted to create a space that was clean and inviting. A place where the authentic Pilates method was the focal point, done on equipment designed specifically for the classical work.

I also wanted to create a Pilates mat environment that rivaled what I experienced in New York City- tough yet rewarding, high energy, innovative and a little edgy. I'm so happy to be in Boylan Heights, which could be dubbed Raleigh's little Brooklyn, and to bring this vision to life. I am eternally grateful to my family for their unwavering support, my friends for the light-heartedness, teachers and mentors for leading with generosity, and my clients for trusting me daily with their inspiring work ethic.

Onward and upward!

Change happens through movement and movement heals.

Joseph Pilates

You can say what Pilates is in three words: stretch, strength and control. And the control part is the most important because it makes you use your mind.

We are what we repeatedly do. Therefore excellence is not an act, but a habit.
