I believe movement is medicine. I want to bring the world of fitness to people of any age and body, as well as foster a warm and supportive community that goes beyond physical fitness alone.  A healthy body is just one part of all-round wholistic wellness.  

 

I started working out seriously in the late 1990’s.  I fell in love with weight-training.  I loved how strong and competent it made me feel.  It did wonders for my fitness levels and it really boosted my confidence.  I eventually started to attend group fitness classes where I got hooked on the energy of all those people working out together.  I knew leading a class like that was something I really wanted to do.  

 

When I moved to Scotland, I decided to follow through on that dream.  I earned my Exercise to Music certification over ten years ago, and right away I started teaching group fitness classes of all different kinds of intensities.  Since then I have continued to develop my fitness education and always seem to be on a new course.  When I first started out, I was drawn towards all the high energy group fitness classes, and I still love the buzz of the room and whipping people up into a frenzy!  However ,in the last few years, I have branched out into the amazing, life-changing world of yoga haven’t looked back.  People tell me I have a soothing voice for teaching it, but you be the judge.  

 

When I’m not teaching a fitness class or working out for myself, I am also a professional clarinettist and spend the other half of my time performing, teaching, and practicing.  To relax, I love cooking for friends, drinking coffee, and petting dogs.
