Allyn, PT (sassy and athletic)
Allyn is a licensed Physical Therapist with a background in collegiate swimming. She moved to Nashville with her husband from Jackson, MS where she attended the University of MS Medical Center and received her Masters in Physical Therapy. Following graduation, Allyn went to work in an inpatient rehab setting with patients who had spinal cord injuries, strokes, brain injuries and other neurological disorders. The heavy lifting and transferring of patients resulted in a low back strain that required Physical Therapy treatment. After finishing her therapy, Allyn realized she must find an exercise regimen to strengthen and mobilize the muscles surrounding her spine in order to perform her job safely and well. It wasn't until she started Pilates that she discovered she had tight, undertrained, neglected muscles and that it was these muscle imbalances that led to her injury. Allyn opened Swell Studio after experiencing first-hand how the Pilates Reformer workout can provide therapy while transforming your body. Pilates results in long, lean muscles that are balanced with strength and flexibility and less prone to injury. Allyn gets the same joy from seeing her Pilates clients overcome injury or lose major inches as she does seeing her Physical Therapy patients take their first steps. Her clients have a range of goals from toning problem areas to becoming more flexible, to decreasing pain or increasing their athletic performance. Most clients can see a tremendous difference after just a few classes. Click here to book a class with Allyn. She is also available for a Private Session, Duet, or Trio.
