Avery Maxwell

Avery has a dance background in classical and contemporary ballet, which first inspired her love of movement and the mind/body connection. She is a fully-certified Advanced-Level STOTT PILATES® Instructor and has been teaching both Private and Group Pilates since 2000, with a particular interest in Injuries and Special Populations (Pre/Postnatal, Athletes, Elderly populations, Injury Management, etc.). In 2012 she began her Restorative Exercise™ training under biomechanist Katy Bowman M.S., and is now also certified as both a Restorative Exercise Specialist™ and a Healthy Foot Practitioner™ through the Restorative Exercise Institute. This allows her to guide others through nutritious movements and correctives that maximize the health of all the various body systems (Musculoskeletal, Cardiovascular, Lymphatic, etc.) through whole-body alignment, while in turn minimizing degeneration and injury. Avery is a Junction 9 local (living in the neighbouring community of Ramsay), café latte lover, and mom of two smart girls. She has taught throughout Calgary as a self-professed “Alignment Nerd”, and loves introducing people to their own potential for health and vitality.

Julie Conlin

I have always had a love for movement and dance and a fascination
with the human body. In my youth I actively pursued Highland
Dancing and Cheerleading as a way to embrace this passion. I
studied Anatomy at the U of S and Medical X-ray Technology at
NAIT. I loved working with people and being a piece of the puzzle in
their health journey. A severe whiplash injury in 2004 forced me to
seek many types of medical treatment and eventually led me to post
rehab Pilates sessions. Working on the Reformer reignited my love of
movement and soon after I began my journey to become a STOTT
Pilates Certified Instructor (2014). I love to work one on one with
clients helping them to embrace and refine their Pilates practice and
enjoy the energy and challenge that comes with teaching a group
class. In an effort to learn more about the Human Body I recently
completed my Level 2 Instructor Training in The MELT Method, a
Self-Treatment system to Eliminate Chronic Pain. When not doing or
thinking about Pilates & MELT I enjoy spending time with my
husband Tim and 3 nearly grown children. I look forward to meeting &
sharing my love of Pilates with you and joining you on your journey of
achieving a healthier body

Ally McNeilly

I have lived a very active lifestyle from a young age and therefore I have cycled through many different phases, practices and disciplines along the way. However, Pilates has been the most life-changing practice I have ever experienced and has evolved not only the way I train, but the way I live. From training for Marathon's to weight-training in the gym, I have always been addicted to pushing myself to my maximum and exceeding my own expectations and limitations. However, I was extremely humbled when I attended my first Yoga class and realized that my body was in desperate need of functional-movement, lengthening and balance. I then committed myself to an intense daily practice of Ashtanga Yoga for 3 years before then flying to Mysore, India where I completed my 200HR Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training. It wasn't until 2015 that I attended my first Pilates class and I was instantly intrigued and became eager to learn more. I started practicing Pilates as much as I physically could and then quickly enrolled myself into the STOTT Pilates Mat and Reformer Training. Pilates has taught me how to strengthen my body as a whole; through movement, breath and the mind-body connection. As a Pilates Instructor, my goal is to share this knowledge with as many people as I can through teaching Pilates and helping people realize the impact it can have on their overall quality of life. I strive to help people recognize their endless potential in reaching new heights and achieving goals, both big and small, and therefore continually growing into the best version of themselves. Hope to meet you soon!

Simone Stoltz

My name is Simone Stoltz and I moved to Canada in 2012 from South Africa looking for new challenges (like the weather ;) I have always been deeply interested the human body and its movement, and nursing used to be my passion back in South Africa. But since moving to Canada I decided to pursue a different lifestyle and fell in love with Pilates and the STOTT method. I have been dancing since the age of six and my favorite is Tap Dancing. At the moment I am certified in Mat and Reformer Level1, Injuries and Special Populations as well as Zenga Equipment Level 1 and TRX Group suspension training. I am in the process of becoming fully certified and taking courses whenever I can fit them in. I would love to be fully certified in the (hopefully) near future and am always looking for the next challenge on the horizon.
