Practicing/Teaching since:

She began as a private client of Shelia’s and progressed into classes and found her passion for Pilates having the ability to heal herself through her own practice. This change had such a dramatic effect on her that it inspired her to study Pilates and the human body further, and decided she wanted to teach Pilates so that she could help others feel similar benefits, as well, as, continue taking care of herself.
