    I know first hand what it's like to pursue extreme shapes instead of moving how our bodies are meant to. For years I resented “exercise” because I associated it with uninspiring 10 Minute Waist Slimming workouts from YouTube. Well, turns out exhausting yourself is not equal to quality, moving intelligently is.

 

After completing traditional trainings in both vinyasa yoga and mat Pilates, my biggest passion became the science of movement. Since then it has been my goal to learn about functional anatomy so I can empower students by educating them about their bodies. I have finished an anatomy-based practical mentorship program and I am LYT yoga certfied the only yoga method built from a physiotherapy standpoint. Since then I have delivered hundreds of classes to students all around the world bringing them movement beyond aesthetics. 

beyond aesthetics  

      Movement is just like food or sleep - nonnegotiable. Despite that, today’s fitness culture has worked hard to convince us that we should “exercise” solely to make parts of our bodies bigger or smaller. 

 

 

     Instead I hope to move us beyond physical perfection and visuals aesthetics, through movement that first and foremost serves our bodies functions. I want us to move well and sustainble, so that rather than finding crazy shapes that are solely impressive today, we build long term strenght that will allow us to be free in our bodies in the  years to come. 

My priority is the help my students find that healty relationship with movement. ​
