I am thrilled with my first session at Whole Living Pilates. The trainer was amazing and I am looking forward to more time in the studio.
Olivia Grace grew up in Memphis, Tennessee where she danced
ballet, modern, and flamenco with New Ballet Ensemble until 2011.
Through her ballet school, she began taking Pilates classes at the
age of 10. Olivia Grace believes in and loves the holistic system
that classical Pilates provides as it helped her recuperate from a
back injury when she was 16. As a dancer, she studied the Bernal
Method, a dance technique that focuses extensively on injury
prevention and alignment. She carries these principles into her
work as a Pilates instructor, emphasizing strong technique and form
to prevent injury and incorrect muscle patterns.
Olivia Grace graduated in 2015 from Butler University with a
B.A. in International Studies and Spanish with minors in German and
English Literature. While at Butler, she became Peak Pilates and
Piloxing® certified and taught Pilates, Barre, and Piloxing classes
at several gyms and studios. After graduating in May, she moved to
Denver to obtain her M.A. at the University of Denver in
International and Intercultural Communications. In Denver, she
completed her Peak Pilates Comprehensive Certification and also
became TRX Group Training certified.
In addition to teaching Pilates, Olivia Grace is the
Community Manager at Athleta in Colorado Springs (The Promenade
Shops at Briargate) where she helps connect health and wellness
professionals to her store.
