Over the years, I’ve had the amazing opportunity to work with students and teachers from all over the world. I saw the need to develop a website to reach students beyond my studio, and to make my teaching style available to teachers who sought additional training. My unique teaching method initially grew from personal experience, continued education, and my personal physical limitations due to injury and pain. Unable to perform many classical and traditional Pilates exercises, I created unique exercises designed to assist in teaching my students new ways to exercise in an environment that worked with their individual needs. My live—and now online—workshops offer my students a fresh perspective on classical and traditional Pilates Reformer exercises. My love of Pilates, and of developing effective ways to use the Reformer that stay within the boundaries of the Pilates method, has led to creating this website.

He or she has not personally experienced that which they teach. This

Return to Blog Let’s start with an analogy. The beloved wine we know as Champagne is authentic only if it comes from the Champagne region of France. That’s why Italian white sparkling wine is called Prosecco. California sparkling wines are not veritable Champagnes.  In relation to Pilates, the proper word
