I received my 300hr yoga training certification through NYI in 2011. After teaching yoga for several years I took my first pilates class and I loved how it aligned my body. Especially having a small case of scoliosis in my thoracic spine it was the only exercise that really helped my posture. I love how pilates can be a great rehabilitation for any injury or buy impairment. Pilates has a way of not only strengthening and toning but alleviating pain and improving agility.
After falling in love with Costa Rica during my yoga training I went back and received my Pilates mat certification in 2016 at Pilates Nosara.
I decided to go back this past year and immerse myself in the experience and I completed my comprehensive reformer and equipment training though Pilates Nosara this past winter. I was lucky enough to accept the apprenticeship 6 month program and I got to learn, work and study under my mentor Page Sieffart. I hope to cultivate what I learned and bring it back home to Wilmington. I think pilates can be like a dance, a body in motion is a beautiful way to create space in areas that might be tight or tense and to open up not only the physical body but the mental and spiritual as well. I like to create classes that focus on connecting the breath and fluidity of movement while gaining strength and balance in the body. I'm so excited to be a part of Club Pilates!
