When I first unrolled my yoga mat, I was 189lbs, terrified, self-conscious of my weight and not sure what to expect. I have spent years with doctors, medications, and treatments for my auto immune, which disrupted not only my digestive system and my life. I searched high and low for a cure, paid a fortune for medications, powders and potions. Yoga was something I had experienced throughout the years, but insisted that running, swimming was exercise not yoga. Through yoga I have found peace, confidence, strength, and increased flexibility, not to mention a working digestive system and the best exercise for my mind, body, soul & then one day I was in a car accident & could no longer teach or do yoga. Until I met this amazing physical therapist who knew immediately that I needed to do yoga again! She ordered me on the Pilates machines in order to repair what I had broken. That’s exactly what it did! Joseph Pilates created the most amazing physical therapy there is, by connecting yoga into his Pilates, creating these amazing machines to only enhance our physical, mental, and emotional stability, all through Contrology! My intention is to design safe, fun, and transformative classes for students across all levels of experience and to welcome all shapes, sizes with love, acceptance, and an open heart.
