When/where did you first discover Barre: After college, I realized that dancing professionally required more maintenance than technique class and rehearsal alone. Pilates and yoga were my first practices and totally changed the way I live in my body. Barre followed that as way to combine my dance training with fitness.
Favorite class you teach: Power Barre!
Favorite past time: Traveling/exploring
Hobbies: Reading, swimming, social activism
Hidden talent: Baking! I don't do it often unfortunately, but I'm pretty good at it when I get inspired.
Something not many people know about you: Pisces is my sun sign
Mantra: Keep your heart and your mind wide open.
Anything else you might want the Tribe members to know about you: I love encouraging people to feel more comfortable and bolder in their bodies. Teaching is something I'm very passionate about and I love questions and connections. Empowering people to love and own their bodies is my primary goal in teaching.
