    I started learning pilates journey at age 16 from Kim Lee, a Pilates teacher trained by Ron Fletcher in LA. Shortly after, I ended up in NYC for work, where I began my studies with Romana Kryzanowska 1986, 12 years later, I was certified to teach pilates by her in 1998. I still teach privates, seminars, workshops today and love every minute.

    I began taking yoga around the same time I discovered pilates when I was in high school. My yoga journey story is similar, I was hooked from day one. When I moved to NYC I stayed with the same teacher Richard Villella, and in 2011, I was certified to teach yoga.

    Reiki

    I discovered Reiki when I was in my early 20’s. Reiki is a healing modality used to send focused energy to heal underlying conditions. I use it to send energy to myself, others and people at a distance. It not only cultivated my compassion for others and gave me a real sense that I could help and make a difference.
