Alexa Calgaro, Owner/Instructor
Hello and welcome! I have been pursuing the journey of health and wellness since 2013. Starting my career with aesthetics, I obtained my esthetician license through the Aveda Institute of Las Vegas. Specializing in eyelash extensions, it was through beauty that I realized helping others feel their best was what I wanted to pursue. I continued my education through the University of Nevada, Las Vegas to earn my B.A in Kinesiology with a minor in Pilates, earning my certification in Mat, Chair, Cadillac and Reformer Pilates in 2018. It was through the practice of Pilates that I found the magic of aligning the mind-to-body connection and carrying those fundamentals through everyday life, thus creating Align Pilates and Wellness. I furthered my education by receiving my 200-hour Core Power Yoga TT certification in 2019 and 25-hour Sound Healing certification in 2021. I am a passionate, caring, and thorough instructor that is dedicated to helping my students become the best versions of themselves, and feel the amazing benefits of Pilates that I fell in love with myself. I continue to deepen and evolve my education as a teacher by attending workshops and learning from Master Pilates, Yoga and Energy Practitioners.
Kelsey Caswell, Instructor
Kelsey Caswell was born in AZ where she started dancing Ballet at the age of 4 with her twin sister. Ballet quickly became Kelsey's passion and she and her twin pursued it as a professional career from the age of 16 until Kelsey retired from the stage in 2018. Through her professional career, Kelsey practiced Pilates and found its many benefits helpful for both dance and everyday life. After leaving the stage, Kelsey decided to go through and train in the STOTT program in Long Beach, CA and received her certification in Mat Pilates and is on her way to receiving her certification in Reformer Pilates. Along with teaching Ballet, Kelsey has come to develop a passion in teaching Pilates and helping people achieve both their fitness goals. Kelsey is excited and honored to be at Align Pilates & Wellness and work with the community of Ramona!
