About the owners…

Nikki Alstedter, Co-Owner

Nikki first came to the practice of Pilates as a professional dancer and massage therapist in 1997. The Pilates principles of posture and dynamic alignment presented an arena of vast healing potential and transformation that guided her educational path and experience. In 2000 she became a Chiropractic assistant and apprenticed for four years, mastering an energetic healing system called Quantum Kinetics. This gentle hands-on approach utilizes the body’s electrical and myofascial system in relation to structural stability and wellness. This experience gave her a unique understanding of the body’s integral system of healing within a clinical setting. Nikki is dedicated to inspiring intelligent movement that integrates and awakens awareness to enhance the quality of LIFE.
