Pilates, Meditation and Fitness Coach

Train to be fitter and stronger safely.  Over the course of the last 18+ years I’ve studied and trained in multiple disciplines of fitness like Pilates, Barre, traditional strength training, kettlebells and more. I use my years of experience, training and teaching hundreds of bodies and blend these methods to challenge your body in a way that creates long lasting results.  Find better body awareness and flexibility while training to be fitter, stronger and learning what it truly feels like to move well.

 

Moving from the right place makes all the difference in the world.  It’s the subtle shift in a shoulder or a muscle that changes how you feel an exercise and more importantly how your body responds to it. It’s the little things that make people say, “I didn’t even know I had a muscle there!” When you truly feel and experience the ‘work’ from the right places, it’s game changing! 

 

It’s no secret that Pilates is my go-to mode of exercise and that I think everyone should do it.  That sounds pushy, but I do! Here’s why:  If you have a body, it should move.  All movement is not created equal.  The pilates methods will help you learn how it feels to be aligned and in control, to find strength in subtle places - and some not so subtle places.  The best part is this strength translates into everything else you do!  In most of the fitness programs I create, we’ll add some pilates-style exercises to build your base of strength.  But to be truly strong, you also have to be able to lift heavy things - like your body, a child, a kettlebell or your groceries.  For these reasons, I think it’s important to add traditional strength training exercises like deadlifts, squats and bench presses into a routine at just the right time to really challenge your body. The combination of traditional training and pilates movement will challenge your body to new levels.
