Balanced Body Master Instructor

Drema Ashley Bourque

Lafayette LA USA

Ashley was first introduced to the Pilates Method while attending a ballet intensive at the age of 17. At this early age she realized that the method of Pilates helped her achieve quicker injury rehabilitation and full body conditioning to prevent further injuries.

In 2002 Ashley chose to build upon her years of experience as a dancer and pursue a career in Pilates instruction. Since receiving her initial certification through The Physical Mind Institute she has broadened her client base to extend beyond dancers, reaching out to golfers, Tri-athletes and others interested in wellness through Pilates. As the proud owner of In Balance Pilates Studio, LLC in Lafayette, LA, Ashley continues to educate and instruct adults, teens, and children on the benefits of practicing Pilates.

After attending Pilates on Tour in 2009, Ashley strongly identified with the teachings and variety of methods presented by BBU. Ashley is honored to be a BBU Master Instructor and is excited about helping educate others in the Pilates Method.
