At Alkalign we believe in the importance of growth and evolution for each individual and also for our community as a whole. Each individual in our community adds to the strength and vibrancy that makes Alkalign the best studio ever!
You may have noticed a few friendly faces constantly around the studio the last couple of months. Observing classes, guiding clients into deeper engagement, or taking notes in the corner of the studio. What better way to add to our community than with a group of new instructors?! At Alkalign we take your alignment and health just as seriously as who we choose to educate you. Our “apprentices” enter into a rigorous 8-week training program in which they learn the skills to provide you with a safe effective workout. Three women have been working their “seats” off to learn all things Alkalign and earn their Alkalign Certification. They are motivated, inspiring and fun! Each woman is unique, real, and awesome—truly embodying the spirit of Alkalign. They all have families, careers, and lives outside the studio. We are lucky enough that they choose to spend some of their time with us at the studio. Meet Danielle, Erin G., and Kasey:
Danielle is a long time client who, for the past several months, has been working at the front desk. She creates a warm and welcoming environment as she acknowledges everyone who walks through the door with a smile. We are so excited that she has taken on the role of instructor as well. I asked Danielle what her biggest challenge was during the training process. She said learning to verbally cue and explain how movement is performed and executed. Another challenge was making the time to fit in class observations while balancing her family life and meeting her own fitness needs. Danielle’s favorite part of training was feeling supported by her training team, instructors and clients.
Erin G.’s love for Alkalign is apparent as she quickly made the transition from experienced client to instructor. Now she will continue her practice as she further enhances the community’s practice. She also blogs about wine—how cool is that? #Alkawine anyone? What Erin has found most challenging is learning proper adjustments. Learning about different body types, abilities, and injuries takes a lot of skill and practice. This is why our instructors go through an intensive training process to keep your body safe and in alignment. Erin has really enjoyed how all the instructors have been encouraging and give her helpful feedback.
If you have little ones you may have heard them talking about how cool Kasey is. She has been providing our Alkalign kiddos with a fun learning experience in the childcare room while the mamas get personal time to exercise. Now it’s her turn to provide you with a fun learning experience in the studio! The most difficult part of the training process for Kasey was learning that it’s ok to make mistakes and to not be her own worst critic. Her favorite part was pushing past her comfort zone to take more classes from different instructors and getting to know other instructors and clients in the process. She loves the feeling of becoming part of a team and we couldn’t be happier to have her.
We are thrilled to have these three women join Alkalign and want you to get to know them as well!!!
