Pilates is for ALL body shapes and sizes.
You just need the right teacher who knows how to make the exercises work for YOUR body and allows YOU to EXPLORE!!
How I Teach
I’m a comprehensive classically trained plus-size Pilates Instructor [NCPT] who believes in teaching the PERSON in front of me by finding and using the right tools to help them succeed in their movement practice.
I have always practiced Pilates in a larger body. I went through my 700+ hours of teacher training in a larger body. I was extremely lucky to have had the opportunity to work with people of all shapes and sizes with different things going on. It was an amazing experience!
I want to empower people to take charge of their movement journey while allowing me to guide them toward what they'd like to accomplish. I want everyone to feel safe and included in a movement practice and in a fitness space.
Props, substitutions, and/or variations will ALWAYS be options during my sessions to ensure inclusion.
I am a total NERD and Rebel/Questioner, so you'll always be able to ask me why we are doing something. The more you inquire the more you learn...and then you can take those ideas home with you!
What I Believe:
Every body is a different shape and size and this should be celebrated.
Every body moves differently because we all have "stuff" going on.
Every body can do Pilates, the body just may need a prop or variation.
It doesn’t matter what the person next to you can or cannot do. You are two different people.
Listen to YOUR body and figure out what your body can do NOQ. Celebrate THAT!
Pilates was meant to be practiced over a lifetime; start small and build on it. We all have to start somewhere.
