“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.” - Arthur Ashe

I have a contemporary approach to Pilates, focused on finding a balance between strength and flexibility by integrating my experiences with dance and yoga. I hope to assist in an improved overall sense of wellness that can be carried from the Pilates studio into everyday life.
I offer a personalized Pilates experience based on the needs and goals of the individual.

I believe it is important to build a solid foundation in movement dance technique in order to explore the limits of that technique and push beyond its borders. Whether in Ballet or contemporary class, you will experience a fusion of styles and techniques.  Finding stability and strength, while playing with fluidity and breath. Most of all, it's about moving and having fun!

Born in New York City, I gained my primary dance training at Alvin Ailey American Dance School and went on to receive a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts degree in Dance and Choreography from Rutgers University. I have worked as a professional performer, choreographer and movement teacher throughout the USA , South America and Europe. I moved to Bern, Switzerland in 2007 and continue to live here with my 2 children. 

My movement classes range from Pilates to Barre, from Ballet and Contemporary Dance, to breath and deep release work... If it's out there I have studied it.
I don't believe that there is a "One Size Fits All" approach for health and wellness, so I continue to challenge myself to learn and understand diverse movement modalities.  
I pull from these diverse movement studies to create classes that are fun and innovative. This is not your traditional Fitness class.
