My Story

Just as I began working in my first job as a professional ballet dancer in New York City, I was injured in a partnering move that resulted in a spinal fracture. As a last resort to overcome the pain, the doctors recommended Pilates. I attribute my 25-year dance career to the Pilates technique, which became a staple of maintaining a healthy, strong body. Retiring from dance to passing on the Pilates training to my clients was a natural transition.

My Fitness Philosophy

I have always believed that fitness is a combination of many disciplines, Pilates being an important piece of that program. We all have different needs and goals, and as a trainer, I honor the individuality and am inspired by the stories and relationships I build with my clients.

My Story

My classes focus on flexibility, strength, balance, and breathing. When I was a little girl, I would roll around on the floor and loved to dance, tumble and express myself through movement. When I was introduced to yoga as a young woman, I knew that I had found what I needed to center myself. I fell in love with yoga immediately from my first practice in 2003 with an Indian teacher in Japan. I felt all sensations from head to toes, and the experience brought me much joy. As a teacher, I see even more benefits of yoga. We use our body weight to build strength, achieve deep stretches and improve flexibility.

My Fitness Philosophy

Yoga helps keep us grounded and helps us to find oneself. Yoga allows the practitioner to discover a limit of their own.
