ABOUT ME
An agreement to meet a friend at a Pilates session became the doorway to my life’s most rewarding work. My first teacher decided to answer my incessant questions by pointing me towards my mentor, Wendy. I sought out Pilates Aligned for my internship year to learn more from Cara Reeser. She invited me to stay. Lucky me! I taught Pilates alongside amazing teachers for for 7 years. It all started as I was unraveling pain from spinal injuries. My recovery taught me to appreciate the body’s ability to heal through mindful movement.

MY FAVORITE THINGS
Potential! I love exploring and refining movement! Graceful gesture as a centering practice. Laughing, because I can. Learning – I’m a continuing education junkie. Can’t stop myself.

MY INSPIRATIONS
Somatic and fascial connection in the moving body. Teachers: the fearlessly inventive Wendy LeBlank Arbuckle and Mary Bowen, the brilliant and humble Irene Dowd, and Kathy S Grant’s powerful presence shared through Cara Reeser. Most of all, resilience is my inspiration which I’m lucky enough to see it in my clients time after time.

WHAT MAKES MY WORLD GO ‘ROUND
Mexico, beaches, music and margaritas are all part of my happy place but sharing my life in the mountains with my love, Brian Nevin and my dear friend Champ, take the prize.

ABOUT ME
Fifteen years ago, I was looking for a new workout and I tried Pilates. Almost immediately, I realized that the Pilates Method was unique. It was fun, energizing and challenging in a way I had never experienced before. I was—and still am—hooked!

MY FAVORITE THINGS
I love the focus that practicing Pilates brings to your body—and ultimately, your everyday life. Unlike workouts with never-ending reps, Pilates is never boring. Each workout keeps you truly engaged.

MY INSPIRATIONS
Exploring the way the body moves is endlessly fascinating to me. When I’m teaching, I listen to what my clients want, but I also look for what their body is telling me. That’s where Pilates becomes powerful.

WHAT MAKES MY WORLD GO ‘ROUND
In addition to raising my son (who often uses my Pilates equipment as his own personal playground) I love sharing the joy, love and mindfulness of Pilates with everyone I teach, whether they’re coming in for rehabilitation, physical fitness or performance enhancement.

CERTIFICATION/TRAINING
Kane School of Core Integration, New York City, NY, 2007 PMA-Certified Teacher, Redcord Active Specialist and Redcord Teacher Trainer

ABOUT ME
I’ve been teaching everything from community mat classes to celebrity privates for the last 10 years. Along the way I discovered Redcord and its amazing physical and neurological benefits. It was a great addition to my Pilates practice during my five years working in a physical therapy clinic in Palm Beach, Florida.

MY FAVORITE THINGS
Any class with props: ball, magic circle or bands—bring it!
I also love introducing people to Redcord—it has a unique, innate ability to spot your imbalances and immediately begin correcting them.

MY INSPIRATIONS
Redcord has been life changing for me! It helped me resolve seven years of pain from disc issues and a bone spur in my spine. The instability of the ropes and the rotational component of the AXIS targeted my imbalances and facilitated a strengthening program that worked. I am excited to bring Redcord to Boulder County!

WHAT MAKES MY WORLD GO ‘ROUND
Every day, I get to positively affect people’s lives—helping them become pain free, build their confidence and feel more vibrant and alive. To me, that’s the ultimate honor.

Balanced Body Certified, EHS Pilates, San Francisco, CA, 2011
Barre Certified
Global Movement and Assessment Training

ABOUT ME
I was very fortunate to study at EHS where I trained under influential teachers such as Elizabeth Larkim, Nora St. John, Tom McCook and many others. I’m inspired every day by their work and continue to grow as an instructor. My education helps me take into account the individual’s posture, injuries and learning styles to create a program that fits their needs.

My FAVORITE THINGS
I love how subtle and sneaky Pilates can be. I get a lot of gratification watching clients’ faces as they start to feel effects of small, innocent movements. I often hear: “You tricked me!”

My INSPIRATIONS
I came to Pilates as a way to unwind after a high-stress job in Domestic Violence. I fell in love and was hooked when my constant back pain disappeared. The positive effects motivated me to move to San Francisco and pursue a career in Pilates.

WHAT MAKES MY WORLD GO ‘ROUND
I am very blessed to have found Center Stream Pilates. Everyday I find myself surrounded by uplifting and kindhearted people. I love spending my days with this community!
