I help women who are struggling with everything from joint pain and stiffness to menopause belly and low motivation but are ready to do something about it.
It’s time to get in on my smarter not harder, inside out approach to your unique body type and life circumstance.
The fancy word for that? Pilates. But all you need to know is I’ll be giving you my special sauce and the light bulb moments you need to transform your body and improve your relationship with exercise. Yep, I said it. You’ll actually enjoy this.
My Smarter Not Harder Approach
I teach the Pilates method and am all about believing that LESS CAN BE MORE when exercises are done correctly and efficiently. I don't believe you need to spend hours at the gym or on the mat to get results.
Finally say goodbye to joint and low-back pain by safely strengthening your core and restoring posture and alignment. Quick and effective workouts and tweaks to everyday habits will get you there. I spent years suffering from low-back pain due to Scoliosis and can totally relate. I hope you join me.

WELL, I MOVED TO BALI IN 2009, WORKED FOR A POPULAR PILATES STUDIO AND MET THE LOVE OF MY LIFE.
And while Bali is a hip and popular place it lacked the amount of Physical Therapists the island needed, I found myself with clients coming straight from surgery or quite often coming to me as a Hail Mary to avoid surgery. I spent most of my time studying anatomy, researching exercises to help each individual and finding a way to communicate the movements to the client so they understood and in turn got the results we both wanted. This is what my clients call my Special Sauce. This is what makes me the teacher I am - the kind that gets results for her client.
"The controlled, tailored movements not only helped me with finding and building my core strength and body alignment but I now hardly ever suffer with back pain. Also I understand more about the mind body connection."
