Movement is essential to our well-being, and moving well allows us to fully engage with life. As a fitness trainer and movement educator my goal is to help you move comfortably, with confidence, strength, ease and efficiency. Whether you are recovering from illness or injury, looking to expand your movement and training experience, or seeking to optimize your athletic performance, I can help you achieve your goals.

Mobility is at the heart of my work with clients. I draw on my background in dance, yoga, bodywork, as well as traditional strength training to help clients reprogram dysfunctional or inefficient movement patterns and move in healthier ways. My sessions with clients are creative, fun, and have an improvisational quality as we explore exercises and movements that target the issues specific to their unique bodies. Strength is an outcome of the goal of moving better.
