Hello, I’m Aimee Baker, I've been teaching Pilates since 2001 and have helped hundreds of people improve their lives.
It's not just Pilates. Drawing from a multitude of exercise modalites, including Pilates, Slings Myofascial Training and functional exercise, 20 years of teaching experience and integral anatomy studies, I create effective, hand-selected movement programs that help my clients refine their postural balance, achieve movement ease, become strong, trust in their body’s resourcefulness and invigorate their vitality.
It’s not just a workout. It’s ‘transformational movement’ that has the capacity to change you. FOREVER.
I teach private, duet and group classes:
- Virtually to anyone on planet Earth
- Face-to-face in my studio in Highlands Ranch, Colorado
I would love to accompany you on your journey to becoming your best, most integrated, capable and joyful self.
Do you have your best posture? Are you looking to feel at home and confident in your body? Do you want to find an inner motivation to move because you love how moving makes you feel? Is it time to reclaim your body and your life after an injury?
It’s never too late to improve how you move and get better at or back to the activities you love, be they gardening, golfing, playing with your kids, or outdoor activities.
Together, we can help you feel vibrantly alive!
“I really believe that Aimee gave me back my life and my ability to enjoy all the activities I did before my injury.”
“Through Aimee’s corrective movement exercises, my body was remodeled. My posture has never been better nor my everyday movement.”
“I was finished with physical therapy and knew that a gym was not the place for me. Aimee's innate ability to analyze your body function and create a program for maximum success was the catalyst that put me back into motion.”
“I was amazed at Aimee’s skills and in particular in her ability to assess my limitations and to help me to both make good choices in terms of my activities and to create a program of rehabilitation.”
“Because of my work with Aimee I am not afraid of minor aches and pains that will inevitably arise from extensive time on the tennis court because I’ve learned how to address these issues quickly and "put out the fire" without any lost playing time or pain in my everyday life.”
“I am 57 years young and Aimee has kept me healthy and strong...with good posture, standing tall with my shoulders, which were very rounded, open and free to move with confidence! There is really no one who will replace Aimee for me, well worth every penny I spent, so my advice to you is go for it!"
Tell me about your goals
and movement history
Let me take a look at how you move your body
and your posture
We will build a hand-selected Pilates and Slings training program uniquely for you
Your initial session will begin with us talking about your goals, hopes and dreams. We will identify what you are aiming for and also discuss any relevant challenges you have experienced along the way. Most of this dialogue will be anchored in your movement story and briefly touch on your injury and health history.
Full disclosure, it usually takes me about 3 sessions to really ‘get’ a person’s body. I consider the first 3-5 sessions to be assessment sessions as it requires observation for me to develop a working strategy for you.
In the initial session(s) I will teach you a variety of movements to get some foundational repertoire into your movement vocabulary, see how the movements go and how you learn. I will identify the places where there is the most room for improvement and establish a baseline to mark your progress. Most importantly, the information I gather in our first few sessions will give me the ability to critically think about your body and make long term and short term programming choices that are educated and considered.
HAND-SELECTED PILATES AND SLINGS MOVEMENT PROGRAM
As far as body-minded movement goes, Pilates is my first love. The equipment, class structure, seamless transitions between exercises and moving meditation characteristic of Pilates stole my heart 20 years ago and my fondness for Pilates continues to grow.
Slings Myofascial Training is a more recent arrival into my personal movement practice and teachings and I am elated that it has finally arrived. This beautiful, science-informed and experience proven movement concept developed by Karin Gurtner, has morphed my Pilates teaching into ‘transformational movement’ that has the capacity to integrate your physicality and elevate your vitality.
As our process unfolds, without a doubt, you will begin to move with more ease, note improvements in you limberness and feel stronger. You can also expect to experience something I call ‘movement joy,’ which is exactly that, finding joy in moving and recognizing that certain movements and ways of moving make you feel great.
As you blossom into a more integrated version of yourself, you might also experience shifts beyond the realm of your physicality. These changes, sometimes subtle, other times strong, will occur across the physical, emotional and mental realm. It is difficult to predict in exactly what way you will change, nor how far reaching the ripples will be felt, but change you will and it will be beautiful and fun.
ABOUT AIMEE BAKER
I am a hippie and dancer soul, who has always intuitively felt the holism of the human body and the primacy of movement when striving to cultivate well-being, happiness and personal integrity. I feel lucky to count Thomas Myers, Karin Gurtner and James Earls among my teachers. Their beautiful knowledge and teachings have endlessly fortified my intuitive senses and made them equally concrete and embodied.
In 2019, I achieved a 10 year goal and became a faculty member for Anatomy Trains. I teach ‘Anatomy Trains in Motion’ which is a 24-hour integral anatomy workshop for movement teachers created by Karin Gurtner, the founder of Art of Motion.
I began teaching Pilates in 2001, owned Bodylogic Pilates studio from 2005-2014 and was named Best Personalized Pilates Teacher by the Philadelphia Magazine in 2008. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts and Dance from the University of Colorado and infuse principles from Pilates, Slings Myofascial Training, Anatomy Trains, multiple forms of dance, Functional Movement Screen and Gyrotonic® into my teaching. My multifaceted movement sessions help students achieve the body awareness, resilience and strength necessary to best manage 21st century living and lead happy, full lives.
I live in Colorado with my husband and two kids and love to hike, camp, mountain bike, salsa dance and aerial dance.
