Why did you start practicing yoga?
I took a barre class years ago and love that I got a great full body workout that was low impact. It really worked my glutes, core and helped my posture. It reminded me of my dance years long ago. As a fitness instructor for 8 years, I taught spin, bootcamps, circuit and Silver Sneakers at various gyms and I was looking to spice up my workouts with something new.
Describe what students can expect when they come to your classes?
As a mother and wife, I understand time is precious and I want members to leave class feeling strong and accomplished. Whether it’s a barre or TRX class, you will get a full body workout through a wide variety of exercises.
What’s your style?
I believe in encouraging correct form and alignment during class. Also, providing different exercises to keep those muscles guessing and with an original music playlist.
What would your final meal be if this was your last day on earth?
Alaskan king crab legs, Kraft macaroni n cheese (the whole box!) and a slightly dirty vodka martini with blue cheese stuffed olives…clearly I love cheese!
What is your favorite song or artist and why?
Not one favorite but many…London Grammar, Becky Hill, Dua Lipa, Halsey, Bruno Mars and many more. Genres I love are 80s, EDM, house, and chill.
Who or what inspires you?
For years I taught Silver Sneakers and I am truly amazed and inspired by my seniors. They love to come to class and always have great wisdom or stories to tell. They are always ready to try something new and work hard even with limitations.
What is a quote you live by?
Grow through what you Go through
What is one thing you couldn’t live without?
Of course my family (and cheese! haha)
If you could live in a book, TV show or Movie, what would it be?
That 70s Show! Just so fun to live in time of no social media, which I did, and the pretty cool décor and clothes (in my opinion). Just the innocence/purity of the time.
What animal best represents you and why?
Giraffe.. no reason other than I think they are one of the coolest looking animals on the planet and I’ve always wanted to be a bit taller.
If you could have one superpower, what would it be and how would you use it?
Telepathy to help young adults navigate through negative thoughts and depression. This too shall pass!
