I discovered Pilates while my mother was taking lessons as a part of her physical therapy program. I was so amazed at how this one movement system was not only rehabbing my moms body but her overall mind/body connection. I loved that it was accessible to all body types and fitness levels. At the time I was a professional photographer and teaching at George Fox University and left behind camera bodies for the Pilates core and bones instead of camera lenses. I knew I still loved to teach so it still felt so right to make the leap. As a teacher I am still a constant student. I am constantly trying to learn and grow myself as a better teacher to better my students experience in class. I am passionate about teaching the classical Pilates method and teaching my students to feel it in there own bodies and use it not just in mat and reformer class but take those Pilates principals into there everyday lives for better ease of movement.
