Hello and thanks for stopping by!
As a mover-of-many-ways, I've spent my lifetime exploring the diversity of exercise. Enjoying dynamic activities, I've experienced a wealth of benefits for body and mind through movement and physical expression.
Athletics, dance and a 20+ year yoga practice have formed a deep influence in both body awareness and teaching style. I lead all my classes with both factual and intuitive knowledge -- spiced with fun and energy.
With 1600+ hours of combined learning and teaching experience, I encourage my students to feel into their potential, experience their strengths as embodied vitality.
Come & enjoy a class or more on my international Zoom community and receive your dose of dynamic energy!
With Anna's guidance in Essentrics, the program helped me to find relief from pain. The gentle, full-body activity is soothing and releases stress and tension. She is a dedicated 'Healthy Life' advocate who genuinely cares for her clients.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
(And if you have others, please reach out)
WHAT EQUIPMENT DO I NEED?
For most classes I recommend a chair and a yoga mat placed on a smooth surface. As well, let's have water close by to keep our cells happy and refreshed.
See below for the recommended specifics:
Barre: a sturdy chair, small playground ball, light hand weights
Fusion Fitness: just a mat
Essentrics: a sturdy chair, small towel, strap or resistance band optional (if hamstrings are tight)
Yoga: a strap and block are helpful to access poses in active classes. To make our final relaxation more comfortable (in all yoga classes), have a blanket and a firm pillow/bolster close by.
Active Ageing: resistance band or tubing, one small, squishy ball (to fit into palm), one medium playground ball, pool noodle, two light hand weights or soup cans. Dollar stores usually have all these props available.
Both waivers inform me of any health conditions, so that I may tailor and make modifications for your needs during class.
They remain active for one year, held in confidentiality, and will be deleted at expiration.
Please note: Both waivers are formatted in a convenient fillable form. Please have theses submitted to me prior to your first class.
