I’m a fitness-loving, gardening obsessed, free spirit with a drive to live a healthier life. Fueled by an abundant fascination of the human body at a young age and a desire to learn more, I decided to become certified as a Massage Therapist in 2002. Being a therapist has allowed me the opportunity to study and work with clients in relieving their pain, reducing their stress, and healing their bodies. My passion with studying the body soon led to a desire to help others further, but to do so would mean finding a way to prevent and reduce the chance of injuries. I was first introduced to Pilates over 15 years ago during a physical therapy session due to a back injury. The therapist recommended that strengthening my core would really benefit me and that I should look into practicing Pilates. Pilates? What’s that? Pilates was just starting to become popular in my area, which meant finding a class and affording it was next to impossible. To my delight, a couple of years later (and more back pain than ever), a Pilates studio opened down the street. I jumped on the chance to train on the Reformer and could not believe how quickly relief came and how the pain stayed away. I was truly in love, which immediately turned into an obsession to learn all I could. Finally after five years of training, I decided to take the plunge and become an instructor. In 2010, I became a certified Pilates instructor and since have added Barre and Pound to my repertoire. I pride myself on teaching clients proper control and body mechanics in a fun and upbeat atmosphere. Pilates is an amazing regimen for strengthening and caring for our bodies. “Sports are wonderful for the constitution generally, but they are of little value for correcting what’s wrong with you- and there’s something wrong with almost everyone. ‘Corrective Exercise’ is the only way to build a beautiful, strong, youthful body” ~Joseph Pilates
