(203) 253-1794


My mission is to help people find their strength--inside an out. I am a passionate professional, with a lifetime of experience in dance, gymnastics, yoga, Pilates and sports/fitness conditioning. I love to work with all levels to create a challenging but fun progressive exercise program that is right for you--your body, your likes, your dislikes and your personality style. I take a holistic approach, grounded in the latest in scientific fitness research, which will help you to feel fit and fantastic--body, mind and soul. I hold certifications from ACE (American Council on Exercise), Balanced Body (Pilates) and Training For Warriors and have completed teacher training in TRX, Total Barre and Dynamic Variable Resistance Training (using sandbags and similar tools). I also have additional training in Pre- and Post-Natal Fitness (I love to work with new moms and sometimes run a Stroller Exercise Class) and Movement-Based Exercise. Let's get moving!
