I opened CORE Studio because I wanted to create a positive, calm space for people to stay active, and because I wanted to share the gifts that yoga and pilates have given me.

When teaching pilates, I focus on the biomechanics and quality of movement. I love to integrate the reformer, cadillac, or stability chair—and finding ways to really target a body part by integrating small equipment, especially mini balls, weighted balls, and fitness circles. When I teach yoga, I take the fundamentals of each style of my practice and allow them to inspire one another. In this way, I can honour the deep and rich roots of yoga while exploring the integral science of movement and alignment.

I have had the privilege of serving students of all backgrounds—from beginners to advanced, children and adults, professional athletes and celebrity clients. Every day, I feel thankful for living a life that involves working with people. I continue to be inspired by the wonders that grace me each day, by my students, and by my teachers.

Every day is new. Breathe, play, and love. Live life from your core.
