My first exposure to Pilates was in 1990 when I was a dance student at York University. But I didn’t truly fall in love with it until 2000 when I experienced Stott Pilates and learned that it could help me recover and prevent injury as I pursued being a physical performer both as a dancer and aerial dancer. I trained to become a Stott Pilates Instructor in 2001 and since then have certified to teach all levels on all pieces of equipment. I’ve worked in the fitness industry for almost 30 years and I’m passionate about helping people reach their physical potential. To that end I trained directly with Sue Hitzmann to become a certified MELT Method Instructor in 2015 and am skilled at teaching clients to the work with the MELT balls and MELT Roller. Both MELT and Pilates and Gyrotonic (which I also teach) have helped me continue to take aerial dance classes with people 4 decades younger than me. And to confidently perform in aerial shows.

I’ve love working with people who want to decrease their pain load and have a more functional life as well as working with elite athletes to help them achieve their current goals. And if you’re neither in pain nor an elite athlete my goal is to help you get stronger, have better balance, better range of motion, flexibility and coordination.
