I was first introduced to Pilates at age 20 after a car accident left me injured and I was unable to continue my daily workouts and sport activity. After a handful of sessions I quickly started regaining my strength and flexibility back. In the process I couldn't believe how strong and confident my body felt after my sessions. When introducing myself back into my normal activities and sports I felt more in shape then ever. 20 years later I still have the love for Pilates and still feel it's one of the best forms of exercise out there. I started the Pilates program when I was 23 and certified through Romana Kryzanowska, I've worked for Mari Winsor in Los Angles in my earlier years, moved to Sun Valley, ID and had a successful studio there for 7 years and currently I'm back in the Northwest in Portland, Or and owner of Urban Pilates. I'm also honored to be a satellite studio of Metropolitan Pilates in Seattle and a teacher trainer with Dorothee Vandewalle. My mission for Urban Pilates is to create an affordable atmosphere where clients can see themselves making Pilates part of their lifestyle with the best authentic instruction. My favorite exercise--The Swan!!
