Before I dive into all the wonderful benefits of Pilates I wanted to share a little about myself and my story. My love for movement started at an early age in a ballet studio. The art of movement as expression has always spoke to me and gave me the opportunity to communicate through dance. As I became more serious in making Ballet a career the importance of cross training and keeping my body healthy was a priority. I started taking mat Pilates and appreciated how I could build the lean strength I needed for dance, plus Pilates kept me away from injuries and stiffness.
After dancing 2 years with the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre and a year with Richmond Ballet, I came back to my home town and danced a season with Ballet Austin. Back in Austin I continued to get more interested in Pilates and was implementing daily Pilates exercises in my training. After getting my mat certification I continued my education with my full comprehensive Peak Pilates certification and interned for 6 months with one of Austin's leading trainers, Vlada Sheber.
Since teaching Pilates I have met so many wonderful people and have had amazing opportunities. I married my best friend 7 years ago and we now have two crazy and beautifully spirited children. I exercised throughout both of my pregnancies and expose my kiddos to the importance if exercise daily. We love camping, biking, ballet and playing outside. I've seen the change in my husband and clients' attitude and self confidence as they've incorporated Pilates into their lives and I look forward to what the future has in store! Enjoy your evening and stay tuned ;-)
