I believe the quality of your movement is the quality of your life.

If you’re struggling with pain, recovering from an injury, feeling the effects of aging, neurological issues or lack of motivation - there is a secret weapon to help you combat them. It doesn’t require specialized equipment, complicated routines, extensive study and it’s right at your fingertips.

I am passionate about improving people’s lives by imparting a greater awareness of their functional movement, to give them tools to transform their life. 

For over 20 years I have used the principles of a powerful neuro-motor practice called the Feldenkrais Method to inform my pilates teaching as well as fitness training with groups and individuals. Specializing in individuals recovering from injury, neurological issues, performing artists and seniors, I maintain a private clinical practice in New York and present workshops across the country and overseas. 

In addition I offer many ONLINE live as well as pre-recorded learning opportunities so you can work with me in the comfort of your home.

- Anatomy & Kinesiology Post Graduate studies with Irene Dowd

- Feldenkrais Advance Trainings with Larry Goldfarb
