Our Instructors

Kia Hill, Head Instructor and Creative Director

Kia Hill

“Support and compassion are even more important. The human being is not a being of perfection. It is a being of curiosity and color.  As a teacher, I aim to help others see the beauty of this world by first seeing the beauty that lies within. If we can learn to listen to ourselves, we can learn to listen to the rest of the world around us and understand how we relate to it.”

Teaching gives Kia the opportunity to not only share her experiences as a tool to benefit and aide in the growth process of her clients, but to also listen to others so she may understand the place and role she holds in their training. Through this understanding, she is able to better facilitate growth to help them reach their healthy lifestyle and fitness goals. Kia is the head of program development and creation, the lead instructor and she teaches all of the classes offered at The Resistance Movement.

“I teach because I understand the bravery it takes to even begin. I understand what it feels like to have someone see something in you, stand behind you when you fall, ready to get you back on your feet.  I also understand what it feels like to have nothing but your independence to stand on and support you.  To open yourself to training and education is to open yourself up to the world. This deserves to be recognized, supported, and praised. The roads we travel are not easy, but they make the growth of our wings worth every heartache and joy experienced. Sometimes we just need a spark to help us light the fire.”


Alexa Lautenbach, Instructor

Alexa Lautenbach“Being able to let go and enjoy yourself is key to living a happy and healthy life.”

Alexa has always been a highly active person and couldn’t imagine life without some form of movement. It is through her years of experience as a dancer that Alexa has learned the true importance of self-care with movement that feels good to the mind, body and soul. Through teaching, Alexa is passionate about, and dedicated to, helping people release their insecurities through the power of movement.

Fitness and dance have always been a part of her life, a part that she couldn’t be more passionate about, and she is thrilled to have the opportunity to combine the two as an instructor of bodyART®, ResistDance, and the MVe chair classes.
