Pilates Apprentice

Exercise plays an important role in my life. I played a variety of sports in high school and was on my college's lacrosse team. In the years following, I continued to be very active with everything from running marathons to weight training to weekly soccer matches. As I got older, though, I was injured more often and began to feel that I was not functioning at my highest level.

Then I discovered Pilates. I took my first class at Clasique in the summer of 2015 and was immediately hooked! Despite all of my athletic endeavors, I had never worked so deeply and with such intention as I did in Pilates.

I learned about my body, my posture, and my movements in an entirely new way. As a result, I feel stronger than ever in both body and mind. I leave the studio every day feeling empowered and inspired - and these feelings influence every aspect of my life.

As an apprentice, I witness (on a daily basis!) the tremendous positive impact Pilates has on everyone who enters the studio. I look forward to continuing to grow as a teacher and to helping clients experience the mental and physical benefits of Pilates.
