What is your favorite form of mind body movement or lesson you teach, and why?
Pilates is my favorite fitness form. To me, it is the best way to make one’s movements in all other fitness classes better. Pilates stretches, strengthens and aligns. The gradual changes are long lasting.
What is your favorite song or type of music you listen to when teaching?
Most recently, my favorite song is Coldplay’s “A Sky Full of Stars.”
What inspires you?
I am inspired by music and seeing clients excel.
What is a quote or mantra that you live by?
The quote that I use most often in my Pilates classes is a section taken directly from a quote of Joe Pilates: “Movement heals.”
What is your haven?
My haven is being at the beach. At Haven on the Lake, I love the setting — the lake, the trees, the wildlife and the beauty.
