Body by Design

A holistic approach to fitness 

My journey with Pilates started almost 15years ago. I have always been pretty active, played softball, volleyball, tennis, etc., I love to hike, paddleboard, ski, and golf. Nothing has helped me stay in shape more than doing Pilates on a regular basis.

I believe everyone's body composition is unique in how it moves through a motion. Adopting this philosophy allows each exercise to be designed to address any patterns of imbalance, thus creating body-mind awareness, giving you a more balanced physic. This mindful awareness will not only aid in the prevention of future injuries, it will create a more flexible, symmetrically muscled body that is strengthened from the inside out. 

I studied Health and Fitness at Globe University. I specialize in Pilates, Golf Fitness, TRX/Rip Trainer, and am accredited through NASM.

I trained in the Stott Pilates method which is said to be the "Ivy League" of Pilates. Stott is based around the 5 basic principles; breath, rib cage placement, pelvic placement, shoulder stability and cervical alignment. These principles are to ensure that each move (exercise) is executed with precision and proper alignment, while focusing on core stability. 

Titleist (TPI) Certified Golf Fitness Instructor, Level 1. The Titleist Performance Institute believes there is no "one way" to swing a golf club. However, there is one way for each individual to swing a club based on their specific body mechanics. I have been trained through TPI's Big 10 how to spot these imbalances and ways to correct them.

What are we so afraid of?

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
