Ashlea McKee


Ashlea is a passionate classical Pilates instructor originally from Sydney, Australia. She made the move to London in 2019 to complete her Advanced teacher training at Exhale Pilates, and continue her career as a professional dancer.

Ashlea was first introduced to Pilates by her physiotherapist for technique, posture, and injury prevention. After her first session, she knew she wanted to be an instructor and share Joseph Pilates’ system with others!

Pilates is a complete mind-body connection, that allows you to never stop learning and challenging yourself. These traits are what has inspired Ashlea with her teaching and own practical work.

“It’s a true honour to work at such an amazing studio that offers a truly safe space for all levels, with the best instructors in London!”
