Certified GYROTONIC® Instructor
Certified JUMP STRETCH BOARD®, GYROTONER® Instructor
Stott Pilates Instructor
I am a certified Stott Pilates instructor and have completed Intensive courses in Mat, Reformer, Cadillac, Stability Chair, Barrels. I have always loved movement and being active and found Pilates in 2001. I was instantly hooked and began my teacher training in 2002.
In 2003 I discovered the GYROTONIC Expansion System®. I trained with Master trainers Sebastian Pletteberg for Gyrokinesis and Kathy Van Patten for Gyrotonic foundation. I certified with Juliu Horvath in 2004 and 2005. I am so thrilled to have found Cheryl to rekindle my love of all things Gyrotonic. I am in the process of updating and expanding my Gyrotonic knowledge and practice with her at Core. Most recently, I have completed the Jump Stretch Board and Gyrotoner Course for the specialized Gyrotonic equipment with Cheryl at CORE.
I share my enthusiasm for movement and am attentive to form in my group classes and private sessions. Clients can expect a thorough yet fun approach to their practice while they improve body awareness, confidence, and strength. I believe my Pilates and Gyrotonic practice has improved the balance in my own body greatly, especially pre and post-natal. I practiced prior to having children, during both pregnancies as well as after both of my children were born (a son in 2012, daughter in 2015). I also believe that building a strong foundation and learning how to stabilize from the inside out are principles that can be applied not only in Pilates classes but also in other types of workouts, as well as in daily life.
I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting from Lehigh University as well as an MBA from Boston College. I moved from Boston to Austin with my family in the Fall of 2019.
