MALLORY BUTCHER has been teaching Pilates for 12 years and dancing professionally for 11. She originally wanted to be a dance therapist but her career as a performer took off. Her desire to use movement and exercise to create body awareness in people remained strong, which is what led Mallory to Pilates. She went on to get her training at Groundfloor Exercise Studio in NYC, and her certification through Pilates Method Alliance.
Mallory's BFA in dance performance and choreography gives her the ability to expertly design balanced workouts for each individuals' needs. Using the six main Pilates principles as her guide, her unique and effective teaching style fuses classic Pilates with yoga, massage, free weights and cardio, leaving her clients stronger, more balanced, and confident.
Since living in LA, Mallory has become a certified health coach through the Health Coach Institute and established her own wellness brand called daretoBAREwellness, which stands for Believe, Achieve, Reinvent & Empower. Implementing these tools, along with her Pilates knowledge, she hopes to empower everyone to recognize just how strong, beautiful and capable the body is at adapting, changing, powering through and reinventing itself!
Teaching Style: Mallory works at a steady beat. She brings to class her playful and disciplined approach from her dance training and is what we call a stealth butt kicker. She'll work you hard with a calm approach. You'll know you had a workout out the next day!
