I came to Pilates work as a somatic supplement to my dance practice while completing my MFA at Mills College. My original dance training was in Martha Graham technique, which continues to shed light on my ongoing study of Pilates. Pilates continues to enrich, enable, and sustain my highly active lifestyle.
Fully certified in STOTT PILATES®, Total Barre, and CORE (HIIT), I offer private sessions to folks from all walks of life – from grandmas that want to play more with their grandchildren to professional dancers looking to refine movement patterns or stay fit in an off season.
I worked intensively for the past several years in the STOTT PILATES® San Francisco Bay Area Licensed Training Center, Blue Sparrow Pilates. While there I taught 35 hours per week of private sessions for clients including professional dancers with goals ranging from managing auto-immune conditions and multiple sclerosis, pre-surgical strengthening, pre and post-natal care, as well as injury prevention, recovery, athletic conditioning, and targeted movement patterning for professional dancers, cyclists, and other athletes. I helped them achieve more fully active lives and decreased pain. I have also worked as a post-rehab trainer – meaning that I have worked in conjunction with a Physical Therapist after the most acute healing is done to supplement the PT’s homework exercises and ensure that proper form is being maintained.
I’m excited to set up a teaching practice in Madison now that I’m here, and one of the primary places that I’ll be doing that is at Kanopy Dance Inc. with the studio’s Reformer and my own props.
