our first language.
While working on my degree at Parsons School of Design, I fell in love with Pilates initially through mat classes. It started with questions like, “what are these movements?” and turned into a constant that kept me afloat during a time of great change in my young adult life.
After graduating, and while working in the hospitality and food industry, a work-related injury left me with unresolved tailbone pain. I decided it was time to take matters into my own body and enrolled in a comprehensive teacher training. I became a fully certified Pilates instructor in 2018.
Since embarking on this journey, I’ve (re)learned that movement is our first language. Through movement, we reactivate our human value and create options for ourselves to move through the world with greater ease and ability.
My students describe my teaching style as easeful, invigorating, and creative.
In 2020, the birth of my daughter transformed the connection with my body. I needed tools to support my healing journey through postpartum, and took a year to complete Dr. Sarah Duvall’s PCES course. Since then, I’m proud to support postpartum women and folks with pelvic floor-related injuries through whole-body solutions.
Outside of the studio, I’m a māmā, artist, herbalist student, and lifelong steward of my native (Māori) roots.
