Empower yourself. Be strong and aligned in body and mind.
Do you want to elevate the quality of your life and have a defined body, sharp mind, and radiant energy? To feel strong, powerful, confident, focused, clear minded and joyful? To be resilient to illness and disease? Do you believe in your body’s ability to heal itself? Are you ready to optimize your lifestyle to be a strong, healthy, happy, smart human being?
Welcome on board!
Instead of just working out, how would it feel to create a work of art?
What drives me: Inspiring people to be their personal best every day; guiding them to those “aha” moments, when the light goes on, and they accelerate towards their highest potential, a peak performance state of focus, alignment, clarity, precision and high energy. I am devoted to empowering people with skills to live with vibrant health through the art and science of intelligent movement, nourishing food, quality rest/recovery, and positive mindset.
Experience and Education: As a student at UCSF Medical School I learned a wealth of information about the complex interconnected systems of the body and mind. In my third year of medical school, my professional dance career was ignited and led to a decade of performing and touring internationally. As a professional dancer I have gained tremendous insight from my own body’s experience as a laboratory of injury and repair. Serious health challenges led me to dive deeply into an array of resources to heal myself, and to once again, thrive in a high performance state. Continuing education in pilates, personal training, physical rehabilitation, the Gray Institute, Mark Sisson’s Primal Health Coaching Program and other functional medicine paradigms, add to the toolbox of resources I bring to each person.
What I Do: As a movement coach, I empower people to be strong and aligned in body and mind. As a health coach, I guide people to optimize their lives through the Four Pillars of Health: Intelligent Movement, Nourishing Food, Quality Rest, and Positive Mindset. I draw upon best strategies from an array of disciplines, including pilates, functional movement, strength training and health coaching, to create an optimal program for each individual. By focusing on precise technique and the pilates principles of centering, concentration, control, breathing, dynamic full body engagement and flow, we create a powerful foundation for all movement forms, for vibrant health, and for life! Living with integrity of line and form elevates self confidence, posture, energy, health and joy. It feels wonderful to be strong and aligned!
Ways to Train with Me: Private coaching is now available virtually in addition to privates in studio at Malibu Fitness. Online videos and courses are now available. Clients may choose coaching sessions including core fundamentals, pilates, posture, strength training, mobility, ballet, nutrition, mindset, rest/recovery, and lifestyle rebalancing.
Move Out of Pain into High Performance: I know the elation of having moved myself out of chronic pain into power and thriving vitality. I have tremendous respect for the body’s ability to heal and achieve homeostasis, or balance. I empower people get “unstuck” from a spiral of “dis-ease” or imbalance and propel themselves forward to a state of healthy, vital well being. Even in the presence of injuries, or illness, we can move ourselves to optimal health, and live in a thriving state, with strong bodies and vibrant, strong minds. I thrive in a peak performance state of being powerful in my body and mind and love guiding others to this.
Create Health: How can we turn on the body’s innate healing mechanisms to thrive? This is the philosophy of functional medicine, and health coaching. Rather than treating disease, the focus is cultivating health. Rather than prescribing medications to treat symptoms of a larger imbalance, one seeks to address the root cause. The individual is empowered to activate their innate healing power. The abundance of health information available today can be overwhelming and confusing. I aim to streamline the information and coach each individual towards their personal goals.
My Story: I am devoted to sharing this transformational information with others, as I moved myself successfully out of many health challenges, including severe arthritis, pre-diabetes, osteoporosis, anxiety, depression, hormone imbalances, gut dysfunction, brain fog and more. The elation of reversing all of these and once again living with vibrant energy and performing powerfully, is a dream come true!
And I just love seeing people light up with the joy of movement and vitality!
I am now teaching movement and health coaching virtually. Join me online to move with intelligence and power, creating vibrant energy and health.
You are powerful. Let’s do this!
