Becca Ward

Rebecca has just returned to the Central Coast after living in Australia for the past four years. She thoroughly enjoys being active and is constantly striving to learn more about fitness, wellness, and helping others live happy, healthy lives. Rebecca turned to Pilates four years ago when suffering significant pain and injuries due to years of intensive dance and soccer training. Having multiple surgeries, she credits Pilates for accelerating her rehabilitation and permitting a full recovery. After practicing Pilates as a student, Rebecca decided to pass on the benefits to others and received her mat and reformer Pilates certifications in Australia through Studio Pilates International. She also became certified in the leading Australian program, Barre Attack. She prides herself on teaching each client correct technique in order to improve, grow stronger, gain body awareness, look better, and most importantly to feel confident about his/her inner and outer self. Rebecca aims to provide well-rounded and challenging workouts in a fun and safe environment. When not teaching Pilates or joyfully teaching children, Rebecca is hiking, fly fishing, and enjoying the great outdoors with her husband Eric!

Alison Zikratch

Ali has a long history of fitness and athletics, which has enabled her to be a well-rounded instructor who pulls from different influences and teachings. She played D1 soccer her freshman year, until she had a serious foot and shoulder injury and decided to retire from the sport. It was then when she was first introduced to Pilates. She quickly decided she not only wanted to practice, but to also teach, as Pilates had helped her body heal and recover from years of physical sports. She believes in the necessity of variety, and loves all types of activities. Some of her favorites include Pilates, Yoga, Barre, hiking, running, and anything that involves competition. Ali is also a certified Tabata Bootcamp instructor, and loves being able to get a full workout with just her body weight. She believes that the first step with fitness is getting over your fear. The fear that it will be hard, or embarrassing, or that you may not know the movements. Once that fear is set aside, fitness becomes fun, and you begin to welcome the challenge. She hopes to see you in class!
