Uniting body, mind, and spirit
I started on my own healing journey when a back injury at age 16 stopped me from dancing, running, and even sitting. As an avid athlete and dancer, I felt hopeless. After trying many other healthcare modalities without lasting relief, I was fortunate to meet a physical therapist who introduced me to Pilates exercises. It was in doing my first deliberate, stabilizing “drawing in of waist line to stabilize my pelvis” that my understanding of ‘movement as rehabilitation’ was born. Practicing Pilates gave me the freedom to enjoy my sports, trail running, dance, yoga… any type of movement.
Personal and Professional Journey…
I soon became a Pilates Instructor with the desire to share this transformative method with others. My fascination with teaching, healing, and movement continued throughout my life in different ways, each step taking me deeper, opening up my understanding of embodiment. After working in a fitness facility, a therapeutic bodywork setting, and a physical therapist’s facility, I opened my own movement studio in Silicon Valley with Pilates, CoreAlign, and Gyrotonic methods, focusing on rehabilitative exercise.
