“My teaching philosophy is centered around what can benefit one’s health and what can contribute to wholeness. Pilates, for me, is a source of renewal, rejuvenation and inspiration towards greater health by being an affirmation of life itself. I love the concept of uniform development and detoxification of the muscles. Strengthening that which is weak and using the breath to distribute oxygen throughout the blood has given me a new lease on life. Joseph Pilates promoted the Internal Shower to warm up the body and get all the juices flowing. The flow of oxygen, through the breath, revitalizes and detoxifies the body, which can help people heal. Helping people is my job, which I love!”
