I began studying Pilates as a dancer seeking rehabilitation for my lower back in 2003. My interest in how Pilates healed my pain and changed my body led me to become a comprehensively certified instructor through Balanced Body University.
Through my experience and love for the method, I bring a deep sensitivity to my teaching. I find joy in helping my clients learn, understand and grow in their own practice and am passionate about educating them about the strength and power of their own bodies.
In the studio, I work with clients of all ages and fitness backgrounds ranging from pre-natal and postnatal fitness, rehabilitation and Pilates for athletic performance. As an AFAA certified fitness instructor at the UC Berkeley Recreational Sports Facility, I have worked as a core trainer for the Cal Triathlon Team and the Pilates trainer for Cal Women's Swimming from 2010-2015. My work with these teams has contributed greatly to my interest and experience in working with athletes.
