Teachers

Alyssa Farrand | Founder

Alyssa’s passion for movement began at a young age. Through dance, she grew an interest in body mechanics while studying at Arizona State University. It was through a knee injury that she discovered the wonders of Pilates and all its benefits. After an international dance career, Alyssa and her husband decided to make New Zealand their home and has since created Aligned Movement to help educate others so that they too can help themselves recover from injury through mindful movement. Alyssa’s approach to teaching is light-hearted and fun yet informative. She can easily disguise a challenging exercise into something attainable at the blink of an eye.
