MEREDITH HESSE

class schedule
Some say that Meredith was born practicing Pilates, and after taking one of her classes and listening to her talk about how Pilates can change your life, you may agree. Meredith started her Pilates practice at the ripe old age of twelve, and quickly realized that it was a perfect compliment to her intense ballet training. Pilates helped keep Meredith balanced throughout her professional career as a ballet dancer, and led her to eventually begin a second career as an instructor. Yoga came to Meredith later in life, when she fell in love with the Ashtanga practice. A serious back injury took her out of the ballet world and away from the intense Ashtanga series. What initially seemed to be a series of pretty poses, Meredith quickly realized that yoga could be used for rehabilitation of her injury. Meredith began studying Iyengar and the Hot practice here at Atlanta Hot Yoga. This life-changing shift led her to teacher training, and to getting her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Certification. Everyday Meredith walks into the studio and begins her class - either in pilates or yoga - she feels blessed to have the amazing opportunity to teach at such a wonderful studio, and work with such a wonderful community.
