Amalea Ruffett

Amalea discovered the Classical Pilates Method two years ago when she started working at Lili Viola Pilates in Toronto, Ontario. Through her work at Lili’s studio, she became fascinated with the Classical Pilates System and passionate about sharing this incredible system of movement. In Fall 2017 Amalea became Lili’s Studio Manager and began teaching the Basic Mat system in group classes.

Amalea entered Lili Viola’s Classical Pilates Teacher Training Program in March of 2018. This program was conducted under the expert tutelage of 3rd generation teacher Lili Viola and 2nd generation teacher Chris Robinson. Amalea finished her 600-hour Advanced level written and practical tests in March 2019 and is a fully certified teacher. She has moved to Vancouver, BC in order to pursue her Master’s degree in Archaeology, where she specializes in Nutritional Anthropology. She is thrilled to be a part of the Reform Pilates team and to bring the Classical system to downtown Vancouver.

Amalea is welcoming upbeat and enthusiastic. She facilitates fun and challenging workouts, while maintaining an open conversation between her clients and herself. Her goal is to help clients reach their health and wellness goals. When she is not studying, exploring our scenic mountains or baking the most delicious treats, Amalea is available for private lessons and group classes on Wednesday evenings.
