When I was in my 20s I remember listening to people older than me talk about their body’s aches and pains. Never would that be me! They seemed old and just a tad…sad. Flash forward 20 years later and low and behold here I am talking about my knees that sound like The Rice Krispie … Continue reading What’s that Sound?
I love a New Year! It always feels wonderful with fresh starts and chances to move forward from the past. I love creating bucket lists and vision boards at the beginning of each year. I’m not a slave to them because sometimes different opportunities come up that take time away from the bucket list, but … Continue reading Welcome To 2019!!!
I asked a client last week what the word “Play” means to them. It really got me wondering what that word means to me as well. Many told me spending time with their families equaled play to them.

During my time in Norway, when we were away from much of civilization and disconnected from my life in the US, I really had time to think about what the word connection truly means. Pilates has helped me to really connect to every area of my life, mind, body and spirit. And from there, the … Continue reading Let’s Connect!
It’s a common word you’ll hear in Pilates and Yoga. So what does this mean in Pilates? In training it is emphasized over and over how important it is to seamlessly move from one exercise to the next. To flow. We are taught that each exercise should have a definitive starting and end point. The … Continue reading Go with the Flow: Another Pilates Principle
When I was almost thirty I decided I was over Los Angeles. I had been beaten down enough and thought I was ready to leave the scene. I packed up everything and moved out to Colorado to live what I thought was going to be “a normal life.” You know? Married to a hot stud … Continue reading The Not So Normal Life
