As a former gymnast and karateka, my personal experience with movement is driven by a perpetual spirit of research, leading me to continue to educate myself so I can consistently bring the excellence of the Pilates method to my clientele and develop new skills with complementary approaches:

  • The MBSR (Mindfulness Based Reduced Stress),
  • The Kinesiology (Touch for Health),
  • The Yamuna Rolling Ball Method,
  • Kundalini Yoga with Kia Miller
