Pilates Studio Located Near Me

Ashlee Carignan comes from an athletic background, from playing competitive soccer to being dedicated to fitness classes & the gym life. Ashlee has always been passionate about a healthy lifestyle. 


Ashlee's Pilates career started 13 years ago, after completing an intense certification program of the Ivan Dahl Method. She quickly became addicted to the practice of Pilates & was excited by the idea of building a career around the teachings of Joseph's theory: The Complete Coordination Between the Mind, Body & Soul. 

Ashlee has opened up her Pilates Studio, PWA, to share her Pilates passion with men & women of ALL ages, sizes & backgrounds, all the while, helping strengthen their physical, mental & emotional journey's! Ashlee prides herself on having an open-minded, "no type" Studio where people can come & feel at their BEST. That's PWA at its finest!

After a series of residencies at some of LA’s most popular Pilates studios, Ashlee launched & expanded her own location in the Beverlywood neighborhood of LA - appropriately called

“Pilates with Ashlee aka~ PWA." 


January 2018, marked PWA's first year open & the studio continues to thrive!

 Ashlee's broad array of clients include ALL skill levels - from true beginners to Pro Olympian athletes, everyone is welcomed!

This inspired Ashlee to create her one of a kind, "Buddy System." This system pairs clients with 2-3 people at the same skill level, providing clients with the ultimate & BEST workout in LA. This system has proven to enhance her client's Pilates abilities while keeping classes at an affordable rate!

"I LOVE working with every unique client of mine to help them see & achieve their personal goals. Meeting new people & connecting with them on a weekly basis is why I love my job. Waking up knowing that I can impact someone's life, or just change their attitude around for just that day - THAT'S THE ULTIMATE FEELING! Priceless."
