Abey Scaglione is the owner of Hummingbird Pilates, a full-service Pilates studio in Beverly Hills, California. Originally from Canada, Abey moved to California in 2005 after completing a degree in Psychology at Acadia University. She opened Hummingbird Pilates in 2013, in order to bring the classical method of Pilates to Beverly Hills. For Abey, Pilates is not only a challenging workout that leads to significant improvements in the body, it is the cornerstone of a much larger approach to health and wellness.
Abey completed her Pilates training at John Garey Pilates in Long Beach, CA (2006). She then received a second teaching certificate through Power Pilates (2008), and earned her third certification with Pilates Method Alliance (2010). Although Abey has been teaching Pilates since 2006, she believes it is important for instructors to keep up their practice and stay engaged in the learning process. Abey continues to train with classical Pilates teachers Karen Frischmann, Alisa Wyatt and Kara Wily, as well as take workshops with renown, first generation Pilates master, Jay Grimes.
She is passionate about whole-food nutrition and loves spending time with her husband and their son. Because Pilates was such a wonderful, healthy part of her own pregnancy, Abey loves working with prenatal women and helping them enjoy their pregnancy.
