I believe the quality of your movement is the quality of your life.
If you’re struggling with pain, lack of motivation, recovering from an injury or feeling the effects of aging - 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 from 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 clients recovering from injury, neurological issues, performing artists and seniors, I maintain a private clinical practice and present workshops across the country and overseas.
In addition I offer many weekly ONLINE learning opportunities so you can work with me in the comfort of your home.
