Welcome to the wonderful world of Pilates! I am so glad you have decided to learn about this movement approach and how it can help you feel stronger and more aligned.
I have been teaching Pilates and movement for 20+ years. With a background in professional dance and a specialty in rehabilitative Pilates, I assure you there is nothing stopping us from having a great session. I have extensive training in modifications for various needs including back pain, pre-post surgery conditions and pre-post natal programs. I have worked with many different clientele, from athletes to rehabilitative clients, body-workers to professionals musicians as well as wheel-chair bound individuals.
My emphasis as a teacher/educator is to train you to understand how your body works and help you learn to move with less pain and freedom. We will work on small muscle recruitment, range of motion, proper alignment and coordination to give you the best possible body you can have.
I like to use a variety of other modalities such as body rolling, fascia release techniques, Gyrokinesis, yoga and Brain Gym to be able to help my clients move in the best way they can. Pilates is always the foundation but after years of movement ,different actions are sometimes needed to provide the best outcome.
I am also a mom with two small boys and know the struggles of motherhood and body care so I am able to connect to mamas searching for pelvic floor help as well as general strengthening for a future pregnancy and birth or post-pardum needs.
I run my own online Pilates business so if you are looking for someone with extensive experience, both in the studio and online I am your instructor. I will listen, acknowledge and compliment your current state and your future goals.
I look forward to working with you!
