Certified Pilates Instructor, MSW, Pilates Studio Owner and Inclusive Movement Activist
Ivy Baron (she/her), is a certified Pilates Instructor based in Austin. She has been teaching movement since 2005 and is the owner of Requisite Pilates in Austin, TX. Her ‘Judgement Free’ approach to Pilates is informed by the first tenet of Social Work: meeting people exactly as they are.
Ivy is dedicated to creating an inclusive movement experience where all folks can explore movement that works for their unique bodies, especially those who have not felt safe and included in traditional fitness settings. She also has extensive experience working with people with chronic conditions, cancer survivors, athletes and all kinds of people who just want to move.
What Ivy loves about her Superfits
"As a Pilates Instructor, activewear is my daily uniform. Comfort, movability, and quality are my 3 biggest priorities and Superfit Hero checks all of the boxes. I’m able to teach 5 or 6 movement classes in a row and feel held with just the right amount of compression, which is no small task. The icing on the cake is that I get to support a company that is person-centered, and committed to the real life needs of active plus size bodies."
How Ivy wears 'em
"I teach Pilates at my studio 5 days a week so I'm in my workout gear 99% of the time, I wear my Superfits all of the time."
