Why did I start doing Pilates?

I started  Pilates after a Thai massage went wrong. I experienced excruciating pain for many years, along with pain from an unknown scoliosis.


After trying many doctors, orthopedists, chiropractors, and various therapies, I was so frustrated with being told that my only option was painkillers or just learning to live with pain.

It has been a long recovery process but most of all, one of the most humbling and fulfilling learning experiences.

What do I want for my clients?

My ultimate goal as an instructor is to support and help people become the best happy version of themselves. 

I want everyone to come to a session with an open mind, ready to see and find themselves without judging.  Ready to rediscover themselves and allow them to have that "me time" they deserve.

I want them to experience how Pilates can
bring you back to life, give you hope, and allow you to enjoy the things you love doing that you couldn't do anymore. 

I want them to walk in/out of the studio knowing that a consistent small act of showing up for yourself can create bigger changes over time. It can improve one person's well-being and therefore impact their entire community.
