About me

I've been teaching movement full time since 2000, having taught hundreds of private sessions, group sessions, and workshops from two hours to two days long.

I had already been a student of Pilates for five years when I went through the full certification (two year course). My first certification was with Stott Pilates. That was the first of three trainings I did in total for Pilates including with Dianne Miller of Vancouver.

I was running a fully equipped Pilates studio when I discovered Katy Bowman, biomechanist and founder of Nutritious Movement®. After certifying as a Restorative Exercise Specialist in 2013, I sold my Pilates studio and started a new career.

I've attended many live trainings with Katy in California, Washington State, and one in Scotland, I acted as a staff teacher for the organisation during certifications and assisted Katy in public workshops such as Dynamic Aging and Move Your DNA at Kripalu.

Other trainings: Roll Model Method / Yoga Tune Up®, 300 hour Yoga Teacher certificate Heart&Bones, MovNat Level 1 (at the age of 59 ), Integrated Kinetic Neurology (Level 1), Gary Ward (AiM), Irene Dowd.

I am trained to teach the Dynamic Aging series and am one of around 20 teachers worldwide certified to teach two-day Move Your DNA workshops. I live in the beaches part of Toronto with my three cats and husband and have two adult children.

"Thanks again for giving me a new outlook on our human condition."

Movement teacher

"...working with you allowed me to see that I was not 'broken' and have more confidence to move my body after my [injuries]."

Private client

"...this is why I'm so drawn to [your] work because it's authentic and real and not boxed up and packaged to fit every body we encounter."
