‘Surround yourself with people who feel like sunlight.’ My journey has been clearer, brighter, more purposeful and more mindful because of the warmth Allison brings to a relationship. Allison Beardsley and I speak a similar language, combining wit and passion with depth and sensitivity. She has empowered me through the gift of Pilates to reshape my health, wellness, body, mind and spirit. As a mentor she has encouraged me to chase dreams, and makes it simple and possible to eliminate the obstacles in my mind. As a confidant and friend she sparks intellectual conversation and discusses truth while exploring all sides of an issue, opening the eyes to new thoughts and ideas. She embodies the entrepreneurial spirit, and being around her makes you listen to your heart, and creatively reach for something so much more.
