1) How long have you been doing pilates? Why did you decide to teach?
I have been doing Pilates for several years and when I started, it immediately resonated with me more than any other type of practice. Because I was so passionate about Pilates, I decided to learn to teach. It’s a form of exercise that leaves me feeling so invigorated. I love to educate and inspire others about all the wonders Pilates has to offer.
2) Why do you love to teach at Vault?
I love the energy I feel at Vault; the instructors at Vault are all so amazing, kind, and approachable. The clients are wonderful as well. The Vault feels like home.
3) What is your favorite workout to do in your free time?
This is a hard one to answer as I love reformer, barre, and Pilates mat. There is something about rolling out my mat prior to a class start that gets my adrenaline going.
4) What’s one thing about you that most people don’t know?
The people who are closest to me know I’m a straight up goofball. I laugh entirely too much, sometimes at things that aren’t even that funny, according to others. I abuse the use of the acronym “lol.” I love to laugh and have a good time. Yolo.
5) What’s the most rewarding thing about teaching pilates?
I love that I get to make people feel good and help others do something productive with their lives. I am honored to be a part of the hour of someone’s day when they minimize stress, decrease feelings of anxiety or depression, but instead release those amazing feel good endorphins. I love that I can potentially makes someone’s day a little better by simply smiling and bringing positive vibes to their workout.
6) What’s your favorite thing to do outside of fitness?
I love saunas. I love to hang out with my daughter and have a genuine laugh with her so hard that it makes our stomach hurt. I love to go to her dance competitions and spend time with the other moms. I love brunch because there is nothing like enjoying a nice cocktail in the day time! And I loooooove to eat good food!
