I am happiest when I am active and outdoors, whether it be hiking, running, walking my dog at the beach or trying a new class – I like to keep it moving. The farmers market is also one of my happy places; there’s nothing better than feeling the vitality of a healthy lifestyle and nutrition is a key part of that. When I need to rest and
recharge a little, you’ll find me at the spa!

I am fascinated by the mind-body connection, I believe the body wants to thrive and that healthy
movement can help to heal mind, body and soul. I love learning about our amazing, smart, incredibly forgiving bodies.

I am inspired when I see the body start to recover from injury or dysfunction. There is so much to learn, from a
physical, emotional and energetic perspective, and that inspires me to continue to teach and in doing so, learn.

Why I love To Teach:
I have a love for anatomy and physiology and I love to share this information with clients as they work through various issues with this movement modality. I love to see the progress that each client makes through every session, this work is magic and to see how people transform is very inspiring!

My Teaching Style:
I prefer to watch the client move prior to starting various movements on the equipment so I can prepare each session with maximum benefit for each client. There are so many movements to choose from with the various sculptural machines. I like to plan ahead so each session runs smoothly, caring to the needs and wishes of each client and their goals. I love communication and having an open dialogue with each client so I am aware of any physical limitations or challenges.

Specialized Areas of Expertise:
I love working with athletes as well as people who may be recovering from an injury or illness. My first intention was to go to medical school, but when I found Gyrotonic, I chose to take a different path. Realizing that I could use this method to help people, I chose not to become a doctor.

Nature, movement, change and transformation, art, the creative spirit, and the sharing of one’s abilities and skills with the world in order to make this place a more beautiful place for all living things.
