I’ve been practicing Pilates for many years, and I was lucky enough to find the original method, through Romana’s Pilates, while in college. I stayed with it and eventually became an instructor because of how it makes me feel and what it gives me everyday. I graduated from the legendary Romana’s Pilates training program in New York, and I’ve been lucky enough to work and train with some of the best instructors in the world, including Cynthia Shipley, Sari Mejia Santo, Jay Grimes, Moses Urbano, Trish Garland, Zoe Hagler, Inelia Garcia and others. My teaching is individualized for each client, and imbued with my enthusiasm and love of the Method. I love to see the life enhancing changes the Pilates Method brings to clients of every age and ability Pilates has made me realize what ease in the body is worth.
