I have always been a mover. I love bodies and the mechanics of how they work, communicate, heal. I am committed to helping others experience + embrace their body as a teacher, body as a vehicle for strength, alignment + joy, body as wisdom that helps us learn. I use these practices as a way to facilitate spaces in which others can find softness, forgiveness + strength around their own bodies + experiences. I also have a background as a dance artist and a writer, which inevitably informs my perception, processes and facilitating.
I first came to Pilates in 2010, and I have been teaching since 2012 as a Balanced Body instructor. In 2016, ready for more tools, I completed my 200-hour yoga teacher training with Gina Minyard at Yoga Collective. Here I learned Anusara-inspired alignment and principles. I also completed my yogahour certification in 2018 at Tough Love Yoga in 2018. In my classes, you can expect a well-rounded practice focused on integration, strength and encouragement.
