What led you to become a pilates & barre instructor?
I’ve always had this wonder and amazement about body alignment ever since high school when I ran cross country. I started teaching mat pilates about eight years ago. I loved that Joseph Pilates fused dance and physical rehab into a workout to create length and strength. I fell into Barre by accident, when I was asked to sub a class and actually really enjoyed teaching it so much that I kept studying more about it. I figured I should keep doing it when someone asked if I was a dancer.
What yoga/barre posture or move challenges you the most right now?
Any exercise where I have to lift my leg anteriorly or to the front. My hip flexors don’t like that, haha!
What is your favorite thing about teaching?
I love being able to teach a class that is really challenging but not detrimental to the body. Seeing students strengthen their weaknesses is the fun part.
Where would you most like to travel, and why?
Egypt, I think the Pyramids are fascinating. Being able to build great structures that still stand from a hundred years ago.
Outside of teaching, what do you like to do for fun?
Most recently cooking is what I like to do for fun.
What is one thing about you that most people don’t know?
I don’t like rides at amusement parks
