I am more than a Pilates Instructor.

I have taken the Pilates Method and my Flower Essence Therapist certification and created my own Methode®.

I believe that Pilates is the key to recovering fully from childbirth because it was the key to my rehabilitation after spending 2-months on bed rest and having a Cesarean Section then 19 months later, having a second cesarean section.

I have taught Pilates since 2004 while raising my 3 daughters. All of my work is about teaching women that building their physical and inner strength is about more than just their body. I’ve learned that by taking care of myself first, in mind and body, I’m more capable of taking care of others around me and beyond.

I’ve worked with all body types in my years of teaching, ranging from the athlete to the prenatal mama and many post-operative patients. Pilates is an incredible method for any body.

After spending several years in a Physical Therapy clinic assisting in patients’ post-operative care, I became extremely passionate about educating women in proper postpartum recovery to avoid the things no one talks about: bladder incontinence and organ prolapse.

I became a Flower Essence Therapist in 2014 because I realized more than just the body needs rehabilitation after birth; a woman’s mental state and emotions also need to be addressed.

Whether you’re on the Central Coast or across the world, I can support you with your physical and emotional strengthening needs.

 

I look forward to supporting you!
