1) What are your foremost hobbies?
Painting, reading, writing, cooking (not really a hobby, more like a survival skill).
2) What is the most amazing place you have visited and why?
The Emigrant Wilderness right here in CA, it’s just north of Yosemite wilderness. I’ve done a couple backpacking trips there that were unforgettable. Lush forest, granite boulders, peaceful meadows, there is a chain of beautiful lakes full of rainbow trout, some with sandy beaches, and great swimming! It’s like a fairy tale land.
3) How do you unwind after a long day?
Stretching! And rolling it out with a foam roller or tennis ball. A delicious and healthy meal always helps as well.
4) Do you have any favorite places to eat in San Francisco?
I’m kind of a lame-o when it comes to going out. I almost always cook at home.
5) What is your favorite aspect of Burn?
The springboard, I was new to the springboard when I started burn and I’ve found it to be a great tool and a completely unique way to teach people the quality, of movement and energy, that they need to use in order to strengthen their core and stabilizing muscles.
6) Who is your ultimate celebrity crush?
7) Lastly, how did you become involved in the fitness industry?
As a dancer I have spent my life studying bodies in motion. The knowledge that I gained from dance about alignment and movement initiation gave me a head start when it came to teaching fitness. I started teaching Pilates in 2012 while living in New York City and I feel that it is an exercise technique that can benefit alighnment, stability, co-ordination, and proprioception for anyone, all ages, all different levels of strength, flexibility etc. At Burn the classes give you all of that and MORE! It’s making lots of people healthier and happier, which in turn is very rewarding for me 🙂
