“When I was young I used to push myself hard through dance and exercise but when I discovered Yoga in 1998 I began to slow down and found a softness about being me, my body has not changed much in the last 20 years but what has changed is how I feel about my body and that is the key to good health.  Through Pilates, I have strengthened on the inside so that now I move with grace, flow, and beauty and it is my passion to show everyone that freedom of movement that we all have.”
