I have 28 years of pilates practice under my belt plus more than 17 years teaching experience. I totally care about you, the student. I want you to have the best work out and that means no filler. No fake pilates. No knockoff pilates I'm the real deal....
I have a BA from NYU Tisch School of the Arts and a Master's degree from The New School For Social Research.
Early on I was a competitive gymnast, then studied at The Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance. Hooked on Pilates after my introduction in 1989. I continued practicing for 13 years before I decided to become a teacher. I'm comprehensively certified in two schools and have numerous other credits and advanced trainings. In addition I have modeled in 8 pilates videos.
My mentors worked significantly with Joe and Clara Pilates (the creator of the Pilates method), Romana Kryzanowska & Carola Trier.
I have studied numerous forms of movement such as Yoga, Tai chi, The Alexander Technique, The Feldenkrais Method and Gyrotonic. I believe Pilates to be the superior method for fitness and posture. I approach each student with an eye towards balance, strength and grace.
