Pilates by Azalea was established in 2016.  After years of teaching Pilates at studios throughout the South Bay, Azalea decided it was time to start her own studio. Her goal is to create a studio that supports the community’s fitness needs while also creating classes that engage the mind.  At the studio, you will be taught how to use Pilates as a tool to bring awareness to your body and to learn how to move.

Felicia

Felicia Kelley began practicing Pilates while an undergraduate student in the Dance Department at Loyola Marymount University. After a few sessions she began experiencing the amazing benefits of Pilates such as improved posture, strong abdominal muscles, increased flexibility, better coordination, and decided that upon graduation she wanted to share this method with the world. She completed her 450-hour comprehensive Pilates training in 2012, at Whole Body Method Pilates Studio in Los Angeles, CA. Since then, Felicia has enjoyed challenging students to become more aware of their bodies in the studio and outside of the studio, while building strength and confidence to carry throughout their daily lives.

As a professional dancer, Felicia has performed on hundreds of stages from Los Angeles, to Washington D.C. to Costa Rica. She brings her love of movement from the stage to the Pilates studio, motivating others to reach the full potential of their body’s capabilities.

Currently, Felicia is a faculty member in the Department of Theater and Dance at Loyola Marymount University where her pilates journey has come full circle. She can also be found teaching pilates in corporate environments, in collaboration with employee wellness programs throughout Los Angeles.

Jasmine

Having grown up a lover of athletics, Jasmine turned to PIlates for a new post-rehabilitation fitness routine. Unfamiliar with PIiates at the time, she fatefully ended up in the hands of a direct descendent of Romana who enthusiastically gave her a formal introduction to the method that would later change her life. After the first few sessions, she knew there was so much versatility and growth that could be achieved within the classical Pilates system. The complete mind and body integration within the Pilates method left her humbled, inspired, and ready to inspire. In 2008, she began studying the Classical Pilates method under a descendant of Romana which eventually led to her transition out of the hustle and bustle of the film industry and welcomed personal growth with her newfound passion.

Jasmine credits Pilates to being a key contributing factor to two healthy pregnancies, (which included twins,) and she’s known to describe it as a “Lifelong Method.”

Having taught over the West side of Los Angeles and the South Bay in both Private and Group settings, her teaching ranges from basic to “super-advanced,” and she finds the most joy in honoring each individual’s unique needs and helping them find their own definition of progress; from being able to bend over to tie one’s shoes again to finding the Powerhouse in one’s Swan or adding a few inches and more lift to one’s splits.

Beyond her comprehensive certification in Classical Pilates, she has continued to attend workshops and expand her knowledge through an array of Pilates-centered resources and takes pride in continuing education from well-respected Pilates teachers among the community.
