I fell in love with Pilates after my very first class 7 years ago and am so fortunate to be able to share that love with all of my students. My classes focus on the classical Pilates method, enhanced with props. I believe Pilates is for all ages and physical fitness levels and I enjoy being able to tailor each class to give my students something new and different every time.
