Head To Toe Pilates
Exercise and movement has always been important to me, but when I was working in a sedentary corporate role for many years I truly recognized that movement is in fact absolutely essential for your quality of life.
I discovered Pilates more than 10 years ago, and what started as a small addition to my gym routine quickly became my main form of exercise and passion, strengthening and re-balancing my body from the inside out.
What I especially love about Pilates is that it's not a fad. It's a proven holistic approach to movement and vitality that fits all ages and abilities, and the Pilates principles can be incorporated in your daily life or in other activities and sports - it's never too early or too late to start!
I am especially interested in and committed to the benefits of Pilates for women's wellness and the varying considerations at different life events; e.g. ante & post natally, living an active life with osteoporosis, or reclaiming your body after breast cancer with therapeutic movement through the Pink Ribbon Program.
In addition to practicing Pilates a few times a week I also do yoga, barre Pilates and lots of Latin dancing.
