Why I teach
Ballet at a young age into a professional career inspired me to learn more about Pilates after learning about the multitude of benefits it can offer. I was offered a taste of the Pilates reformer work while attending the University of Utah’s ballet department in 1999. Having sustained multiple injuries from dancing, Pilates became a rehabilitative form of movement. I taught at former Julian Littleford’s JL Body Conditioning in Del Mar, Ca while dancing with City Ballet of San Diego and trained in Encinitas, Ca with Synergy Systems under Kathleen Murakami. I certified in 2001 in Pilates mat and in 2003 in all Pilates apparatus through Marie Jose Bloom Lawrence’s Long Beach Dance Conditioning Pilates program taught by Ms. Murakami. I continued to pursue Pilates and opened my own studio in Flagstaff, Az in 2003. During that time I trained in multiple bodywork modalities including visceral and cranial through the Barral institute with my dear friend and mentor Tim Williams. In 2010, I moved back home to the Sierra Nevadas, and started teaching with K2 Pilates, and have accomplished more educational endeavors along the way!
