I fell in love with the Pilates method in 2012 when I accidentally stumbled into a YMCA Pilates class. After talking to the instructor about how she learned the method, she pointed me to Pilates by Val, a studio in Gulf Breeze, FL. I attended Val's classes for a few months and once I started feeling the benefits in my body (improved posture, flexibility and reduced back pain), I decided to pursue a full certification and try to turn it into a career.
My personal experience has shaped the way I approach my practice. Correct and controlled movement with the intention of restoring balance to the body is the focus of my teaching. I view Pilates as one of the tools that I use to help my clients better understand their bodies and learn how to prevent or recover from injuries
I truly believe that Pilates is for EVERYONE: every body type, every age and every fitness level. Whether you are training with me one-on-one or in a group setting, you can expect personalized attention. My reformer classes are limited to 6 people so that I can watch everyone and make the necessary corrections. I am committed to the well-being of every single client. I strive to give you a great workout but more importantly, to impress on you the correct way to train and move your body both in class and in your daily lives.
