Your body is a work of art.
Shouldn’t you curate its condition?
You deserve the highest quality experiences.
You deserve to be comfortable in your own skin.
You deserve to feel Empowered. Dynamic. Unstoppable. YOU.
So letting an injury or lack of fitness spoil your lifestyle is not on the agenda.
Yet when you push your body past its edge (and injure yourself) or fall out of your workout routine (because life gets hectic), that’s exactly what happens.
You end up… Disappointed. Frustrated. Sad. Your body isn’t performing the way you want it to.
I know all about those disappointments. I have been there.
I’ve been a dancer my whole life. When it came time for college, I was very fortunate to earn a full scholarship to the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. There I was, bright eyed and bursting with a love for dance that was unstoppable. I was going to be on Broadway, and I gave it my all. That was until I tore my hamstring in rehearsal. If you’ve ever been injured doing something you love you know what happens. Injuries change everything.
Suddenly, I was unable to do what I loved most, what made me feel alive, driven, fulfilled. I was beyond devastated. So I went home to Seattle, shattered (both emotionally and physically), to recuperate and try to rebuild my strength.
I did everything to heal my leg: rest, acupuncture, physical therapy. I was frustrated, angry, sad, and more than anything I missed dancing. I was not myself without it.
But then I found Pilates.
My physical therapist introduced me to Pilates for rehabilitation and I finally started to see some improvements. First, I started to feel stronger – the strongest I had felt since my college days. I felt my body healing; I felt my dreams returning.
Pilates strengthened my body, healed my injuries, and most importantly – it repaired my spirit. I felt more connected to my body than ever before. The practice prepared me, mentally and physically, for more rigorous, professional dancing.
In just a few months’ time, I was stronger than ever. I relocated to New York City and immediately began dancing with multiple dance companies. Becoming a certified classical Pilates Instructor was the natural next step. I wanted to bring this incredible method to athletes, dancers, and fitness minded individuals everywhere.
Through it all, Pilates was the one thing that I knew was helping build my body up rather than break it down.
It healed my body and allowed me to achieve my dreams, and it can do the same for you.
I am devoted to your body as a delicate work of art.
Fast forward 15 years. I now have more than a decade of experience helping others (like YOU) regain their strength and achieve the fit body they’ve always wanted. Seeing my clients make progress, become more connected to their bodies and feel better than ever is the ultimate win.
