I began my love of exercise in high school and college where I studied Ballet
and Modern dance.
I began teaching fitness classes in 1996. I loved teaching large groups but
was missing the personal connection that I knew I could get through personal
training. I became certified through The American Council on Exercise 10 years
ago and I stay very current with all new trends and changes.
Throughout my years of training individuals I felt a strong desire to teach
group classes again. This time I wanted the class to include all of the
important things I teach my personal clients. Those include a strong sense of
safety both physically and spiritually, pure movement from the core (which I
learned in dance), balanced strength, and fun (always).
Four years ago I developed The Bar Workout and recently Aerial
The Bar Workout was
born out of the need to be complete in our body. With The Bar Workout
we fuse all aspects of fitness; abdominal core work, dance, balance, strength
training, yoga and simple meditation. It is exactly what I have been hoping to
teach for many years!
Aerial Fitness is a
great complement to The Bar Workout and I love it. It has become my
passion. I have performed several times in Seattle this last year and plan to
perform much more. I study frequently with some of the best aerialist in the
Northwest including Terry Crane, Elizabeth Rose, Beverly Sobelman and visiting
instructor Petra Lang.
I believe completely that it is in giving that we receive. I encourage my
clients to give of themselves each day in any small way they can. I encourage
clients not to judge others for they will surely be hard on themselves if they
do. I believe that it is in loving ourselves, and being proud of whom we are,
that we will become physically what we strive for. In the end whether we wear a
size 5 or 12 what will matter most is our health and the size of our heart.
I look forward to seeing you in class some day!
