Lyana Levy cherishes these words: “She believes that just being a good person attracts good energy.” Witnessing her tremendous growth over the past few years and her top-notch clients, it’s clear. I think her theory is correct. Within months of purchasing the reformer at the beginning of the pandemic, Forma Pilates It had become the go-to class for all major models and celebrities, Hailey Bieber, Kaia Gerber, Kendall Jenner, etc. She’s literally one of LA’s biggest kept secrets.
But celebrity fanfare is just a decoration for Levi. The original goal was to keep ourselves grounded and instill purpose in times of chaos and uncertainty. Not only did that intention change her business, But it also changed the lives of those around her..
