Know No Limits!
I started Pilates with Retrofit in 1999 and I was hooked from my first roll down. I felt the benefits in my body and I loved how it engaged my mind. In my family I have some strong longevity genes…one of my grandmothers lived to 100 and the other to 92, so I anticipate that I’ll be using my body to the age of 100. Pilates is my plan for ease of movement throughout my life. While I am strong, I am sometimes a bit clumsy and Pilates has trained my muscles’ instinct to move and react in ways that avoid injury. I wanted to learn more about how and why this form of exercise was so effective, so when Retrofit began offering teacher training I took the plunge to become a certified instructor. I enjoy teaching and the ‘AHA’ moments that people have when they discover they are able to do something they didn’t think possible…as well as the ‘AAAAAH’ moments when they simply feel good moving. I have observed the power of Pilates at a therapeutic level, as well as the capacity for Pilates to provide challenge on an athletic level. Pilates truly is for everyone. It is my joy to share it with others!
