As a professional contemporary ballet/modern dancer with over 26 years of technique, performance and teaching under my belt, I turned to the Pilates method to stay in peak mind/body condition and injury free. Since graduating from the rigorous and renowned comprehensive Ron Fletcher Program of Study in 2007, I've worked with a vast array of clients from professional dancers and athletes, to pre and post natal moms, to busy executives. I specialize in back care, pre and post natal, injury prevention/rehabilitation, and peak performance conditioning.
My love for and in-depth study of a variety of yoga styles began during my teaching and dancing tour of Australia in 2008. From Iyengar, to Ashtanga, to Anusara, to Restorative and Yin, I fuse the entirety of my studies into each and every class. I graduated from Yoga Tree San Francisco with my 200 Hr Vinyasa Yoga Alliance Certification in 2008.
My holistic nutrition studies span 10 years of Western Sports Nutrition, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Indian Ayurveda throughout high school and college. I'm extensively self studied in plant based nutrition, living "raw" foods and super foods, and a proud holistic health coach graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, New York.
I've taught pilates, yoga, and dance for some of the worlds most revered clubs, retreat centers, and festivals including Equinox San Francisco, Sports Club LA, Rancho LA Puerta, Bali Spirit Festival, and The Envision Festival. I've lead and produced wellness/health/fitness retreats and workshops in various locations including San Francisco, Mexico, Bali, and Costa Rica since 2007.
I relocated to Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica four years ago to produce retreats and teacher training programs full time. Check out my entire story, over 700 blogs, and my upcoming retreats and teacher trainings on
