Pure Body Pilates/Gather Studio/YMCA
My interest in movement of the body began when I witnessed my first ballet class at age 3. A love affair with dance ensued and I practiced ballet, jazz, modern and tap in the Wood River Valley and then continued through college. During high school I began dabbling in yoga and Pilates to further my dance practice. In 1998 I completed Kelly Kane’s Physical-Mind Institute Pilates certification. I also have my 500 RYT/200 E-RYT through Yoga Alliance since 2008. I am a committed student of yoga and the Pilates method and hope to deliver the gift of mindful movement, and awareness of the inner teacher in an approachable, fun and interesting way. I keep busy teaching vinyasa-flow, gentle yoga, introductory yoga, group mat, and private lessons in both Yoga and Pilates. I am Yoga Director at Pure Body Pilates. I teach teachers as part of the Shanti Yoga School staff, and am excited to be part of bringing yoga teacher training to my community. I am embarking on my next yoga education adventure when I begin a yoga prenatal certification April 2014. Most importantly I live my yoga everyday with my favorite yogi's - my daughter Kensie, and husband Joey. I am truly a proud yoga/movement nerd. I can't seem to get enough! Bring it on!
