I am forever grateful to Nicola Weiner MSPT, Kelly Kane (The Kane School of Core Integration) and Renee Jimenez Orona. I began my journey into Pilates with all of these amazing women, who helped me heal and inspired me to become an ever learning teacher.
Kim Finklestein MSPT, encouraged me to continue working outside the box. The Mezieres Method, and the work of Jean Claude West continue to inspire me in the realms of the human body, movement and healing.
Niedra Gabriel introduced me to the true grace, flow and precision of the classical method. She has inspired me to dig deep into the traditional work and all of its offerings.
Vintage Pilates is a traditional Pilates hub, under master teacher, Jay Grimes, for teachers and true enthusiasts. I am grateful to be deepening my understanding of the work consistently in this studio under insightful teachers.
Learning the archival work from Benjamin Degenhardt is everything. He cares so wholeheardetdly for the intentions of Mr. Pilates and his methodology. He is so inspired that I sometimes think he is fully channeling Joe.
Rebekah Rotstein, my dear friend and colleague, who has worked diligently in the field of bone health to develop her Pilates for Buff Bones methodology.
Jane Kasdan, a true healer, Alexander Technique teacher and incredibly gifted bodyworker. I continue to learn from her how we have the magical and majestic ability to heal and expand within and beyond the physical and energetic body.
My original journey into the practice of yoga began with the teachers at Om Yoga in NYC and later led me to find Elena Brower, Chris Stein and Chad Hamrin. These special teachers have brought me to new depths within myself and my yoga practice.
Sarah Reese, yoga teacher, soul sister and dear friend; we co-teach workshops together, with the intention of connecting the physical form and the energetic form. We find that Pilates and yoga compliment one another beautifully and never have enough time to brainstorm all of our ideas.
Gil Hedley, explorer of the human form, changed my life as I heard him lecture and then entered his dissection lab. If you crave to know more about human form and human nature in a deeply profound environment, Gil is a true gift.
Karen Ellis, friend, fellow Somanaut, Pilates Teacher and creator of Pilates Nerd continues to inspire me as we dive into the depths of the Pilates sea!
