Pilates Instruction

I offer in person private Pilates sessions and virtual private and group sessions.  A private session is tailored to your individual fitness goals, strengths and weaknesses. For in person sessions, exercises are performed on the mat and Pilates equipment, including the reformer. Sessions last 55 minutes. With virtual sessions, we use the mat, chairs, walls, and any other useful props and toys you may have at home. 


Pilates exercises help develop good posture and alignment, stability, balance, strength, flexibility, and flowing movement. Strength and flexibility of abdominal and back muscles are central to a Pilates program.  Pilates integrates the mind and body, teaching mental focus and control and coordination.  Pilates promotes both physical and mental rejuvenation. 


 In my teaching, I use the 3Core Connections®
Embodied Perspective. This perspective, developed by
Pilates and movement expert Wendy LeBlanc-Arbuckle,
teaches us that moving with whole body coordination
helps us move more efficiently and with decreased tension. We become aware of how our breathing can support us.  We sense our relationships to gravity and space and explore how these relationships support our movement too.  We learn to appreciate the body’s own intelligence.  Our movement becomes energizing and joyful. 


Pilates sessions take place online and at Goodman Physical Therapy in West Los Angeles.


I am a Nationally Certified Pilates Teacher.
