Why I Practice:
My Pilates practice began as a supplement to my dance training-- it allowed me to realize the nuances of alignment, mobility and mechanics as it relates to my body and to gain control over my hypermobile joints. Over the years, my practice has progressed from injury prevention to movement education; the information I have gathered has made me an overall smarter mover which has been essential is maintaining a healthy dance career.
Why I teach:
Teaching allows me to work with a varied spectrum of body-types and movers--my clients are constantly educating me and forcing me to find creative ways to approach biomechanics. This experience is priceless, as an instructor and as a dancer.
