Founder of In Play Pilates. I believe my true vitality comes from my childlike demeanor, adventure seeking spirit and Love for the feeling of Aliveness!
Born and raised on Maryland's Eastern Shore I was able to "PLAY" a lot! I was outside climbing trees,swimming, building forts, following deer tracks, constantly challenging myself to see how much one girl could conquer. These first adventures led me into many journeys around the world until I came to settle in the San Francisco Bay Area, a dip in the ocean and a jaunt to the mountains thats the life for me. I believe in the power of the imagination, curiosity, constant site seeing and getting rid of the box.
As a Pilates Teacher I have over 1000 hours of course training as part of my TTC through the Pilates Center of Boulder, with over a decade of experience working with the human form. I teach to the body in front of me, whether you are recovering from surgery, pre/postnatal , a dancer, a body builder,etc...I have a background in Physiology and have owned my own personal training business in the States and New Zealand. My teaching has taken me all over the world, my heart beats to the joy my training has brought to so many lives.
When I am not teaching you can find me in the ocean on my surf board connecting with the deep blue. I may also be in the forest searching for the perfect climbing tree, or maybe you see me swinging in a hammock reading my book or blasting my fav tunes singing at the top of my lungs, dancing in big circles:)
"Play is the highest form of research." Albert Einstein said that and what better topic of research than you! I challenge my clients to stay curious, to appreciate where they are in their own journey of self discovery and I am committed to their own versions of success. Joseph Pilates intention in my words was to help create a world where life is lived to its fullest expression, enjoying everything with "zest and pleasure" as he so often states.
I will hold you accountable and I hope you hold me there as well. You will learn the transitions, how to move your equipment, the order, and yes there will be homework. Finding the joy and playfulness in all these things will bring a deeper connection to your body and mind, not only will you see the benefits of Pilates in your body but you will live it in every daily task you do!
