Amie Baca, Studio Owner
Amie has been dancing for most of her life, practicing Pilates for over ten years, and has been a Licensed Massage Practitioner since 2005. These passions have brought Ms. Baca an acute awareness of the human form and its functions and she is honored to share her experience with her clientele. In 2013 she joined the Peak Pilates® team and became a Master Instructor, teaching teacher training programs in Seattle and on Maui. She believes in the Pilates method in its classical form and is committed to the system it provides. Her goal for all of of her students is to gain awareness and control in the powerhouse and therefore become stronger, taller, less prone to injuries and having a greater sense of self to carry these qualities into daily life.
Originally from Redlands, CA, Ms. Baca moved to Seattle to study at Cornish College of the Arts where she earned her Bachelor of Fine Art in Dance. She was a member of The Pat Graney Co., a member of d9 Dance Collective, and an original member of The Heavenly Spies Cabaret. Ms. Baca taught jazz throughout Seattle at local studios and at Cornish in the college and preparatory programs. She has worked with many local and national choreographers and has performed throughout the Seattle area and beyond.
Through her continued ambition to become a stronger and smarter dancer, Ms. Baca began to study the Pilates Method with Cary Regan in 1997. She became a Certified Pilates Instructor through Balance Within Pilates Studio, under the directorship of Gail Anderson in 2000, and remained a member of the staff there for over three years.
Always in pursuit of knowledge, and in order to enhance her Pilates practice, Ms. Baca enrolled in the Brian Utting School of Massage where she earned her degree in massage therapy.
She started Pilates on 10th in 2003 in a small studio one block from the current location. Pilates on 10th has been running in its expanded space since 2008.
