I am a wife and mother of two teenager sons. Exercise has always been a big part of my life. I was a gymnast as a child, a diver as a teenager and an aerobics enthusiast in college. In my late 20’s, with the help of my husband, I successfully completed numerous marathons. I have continued to run into my 40’s, but tennis has become my sport of choice. I started doing Pilates because I developed dyastasis after giving birth to our youngest son in 2003. Dyastasis is the separation of your abdominal muscles. Pilates helped close my dyastasis from 4 inches to 1/4 of an inch in a 6 month period. I was so impressed with the results not only how Pilates helped my dyastasis, but also it improved my strength and flexibility. I was certified by Power Pilates in 2004 to teach beginner and intermediate mat classes. I then became certified comprehensively by Peak Pilates on the highest level on all equipment in 2010. The last 14 years I have been training classically with Sonje Mayo. Sonje trained with the Joseph Pilates when she danced professionally in Martha Graham’s School, and has over 40 years of training experience. I have been teaching Pilates for almost 13 years in my home and client’s studios. I truly enjoy sharing my knowledge of Pilates with my clients. Pilates is a non-impact system of exercises that anyone can do using special apparatus designed to improve strength, flexibility, posture, and enhance mental awareness. I look forward to sharing my knowledge with you!
