I have been teaching in the fitness industry for over 6 years. As a Yoga and
Pilates instructor my primary goal is to help the community by sharing the knowledge
of health, motion and exercise which I have accumulated over the years.
I strongly feel that the significance of preventative health practices such as
regular exercise are immensely underestimated in society. During
my quest to becoming more knowledgeable within the health field, I have full intentions
of passing on this knowledge to my students, loved ones, and clients; in the hope that this knowledge will help guide them along their personal path of self preservation.
