I grew up in Carmel, Indiana and have lived here most of my life. I am a graduate of Indiana University and after finishing college I moved out of state for a few years. Upon moving back to Carmel in 2010, I started practicing yoga at a local studio. My love for the practice grew quickly and became a constant in my everyday life. Yoga provides not only a physical practice, but it allows space for emotional and spiritual growth, as well as stress relief and self-care – helping to continue the development of yoga, gratitude and compassion. After 5 years of daily practice, I became a 200 hour certified RYT and have been teaching since 2016 upon completion of my 8 months of training. I am currently in continued training working towards my 500-hour RYT certification. I love to provide an atmosphere for people to come as they are. Our bodies and minds change everyday so I will always provide modifications and a safe place for students to both explore and soften their edge.
Tracy Ash started teaching Piyo in 2015 when she was introduced to it. She realized that as a runner and a busy mom of 3 this was something her body needed to help her remain injury free when she hit the pavement and remain calm among a busy life. Tracy loved that Piyo maintained cardio endurance through high intensity but low impact sequences and flow series so she could define and stretch every muscle while on a mat. Piyo helped Tracy lose 30 lbs but more importantly it helped her build the strength, flexibility and balance she needed help her move ahead with her overall mental and fitness goals.
Piyo is low impact but high energy and it is the perfect complement to any other fitness regimen. Tracy loves seeing all ages and abilities leave her class feeling successful, energized and empowered.

Holly Jason started doing Pilates in 2000 when it was introduced at her gym and she loved the way it made her feel afterwards as well as the way it transformed her body into having longer, leaner muscles. It wasn’t long before she realized this is what she wanted to do “when she grew up” and that she wanted to pursue certification in order to understand Joseph Pilates more and why he designed the system of exercises the way that he did. She received her comprehensive certification (all apparatus & all levels) from The Pilates Center in Boulder, CO in 2006 and worked full time in a studio in Birmingham, AL until her son was born in 2011.
She knows that the beauty of the work is that it can help rehab those who have injuries or chronic pain, but also be very challenging to those who are already strong. It is also an exercise you can do throughout your lifetime and work against the natural challenges of age – strength, balance and flexibility. Holly and her family moved to the Indianapolis area in November of 2014 and she looks forward to seeing you in class!
