There's a lot of stigma attached to the word Pilates, in part because it became part of a late 80s and 90s fitness craze dedicated to a small elitist group of folks. My practice is not like that. I pride myself on my ability to work with all different types of bodies, regardless of whether or not you feel like you "belong" in a Pilates environment. I invite you to explore this work as a collaboration, as I encourage my clients to ask questions and advocate for themselves along the way. This not only makes the experience more enjoyable for both of us, but it deepens your connection and understanding of your body and allows for more growth, faster recovery and a greater sense of autonomy. My studio is located on the wellness campus of Radical Healing, an intentional, radically inclusive, LGBTQ+ and Black, Indigenous, People of Color centered, multiracial and multicultural campus for healing and wellness. Come see me sometime!
