Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Alkalign

Inclusion has always been at the forefront of who Alkalign is. At its inception, our goal was to create a brand, a workout and an environment where all felt welcome. Coming from a barre background, most of our clients at the time were women ages 25-45. Operating in...

What Do Sparkling Wine and Alkalign Have In Common?

I took a 3 month break from Alkalign and here’s what happened…

You all know and love our master instructor Cathy P! She came to the studio over a decade ago with an IT band injury. Back then, she was running a ton and was not stretching or cross-strengthening. Soon after embracing Alkalign regularly, her IT band was feeling much...

You Can Do Hard Things

1 Year. 52 Weeks. 365 Days. Not that I'm counting. 😉 It's been a year since my complete achilles rupture while playing pickleball on a super hot summer day. I look back at that day with regret because I didn't listen to my body. With a history of minor calf...

The Missing Piece of the Hydration Equation

We’ve all been told that we should be drinking ½ our weight in ounces of water per day to stay hydrated. While that’s not a bad goal since most of us are chronically dehydrated, drinking bulk liquid is only part of the hydration equation. Most of us are familiar with...

Testimonial: Feeling Strong & Accomplished

My name is Liz Rhodes and I came to Alkalign to strengthen my core and improve my stiff, bad back. When I first joined, I felt very intimidated. I always went to the back corner so that I could see what everyone else was doing. The interesting part is whenever I take...

Do you have too many tabs open in your brain?

If so, you’re not alone. Ahhh, it’s officially the season I affectionately refer to as May Mom Brain. The time of year when the calendar is overflowing with activities and events. End of school performances, games and graduations. The time of year when my mind short...

Hi! I’m Erin and my passion in life is helping others feel better by helping them get out of their own head. So much of our relationship to food and fitness is a reflection of deeply rooted beliefs that were imprinted on us at a very early age. These beliefs drive all sorts of behaviors, many of which are not good for our physical or mental health. I know this first-hand. As a former calorie-counting cardio queen, I played right into all the toxic messages about what it meant to be “healthy”. That all changed when I hit rock bottom. Since leaving my corporate career in 2009 I have been fully committed to shifting the narrative and helping people experience better physical health by unpacking unhealthy beliefs. My biggest inspiration are my two young daughters, who I hope to raise in a household that openly illuminates and addresses the misinformation instead of adopting it.
