There ain't no bodylike a Pilates body
The start of the journey
Growing up in Ireland, I loved being outside and playing sports. When we moved to Canada at the age of 15 (with all my family) it became clear: Canada is where I would live forever! From running around with friends as a kid; spending hours absorbing nature – you could say that these early memories set me off into becoming an avid hiker/runner who loved exploring. I have been a runner and played many sports my whole life, including soccer. One day I started experiencing pain in the front part of my left leg near where it meets your shin-bone area - which is what they call "shin splints." It became hard for me to walk and eventually I had to quit running. At the age of 19, I joined my first Pilates class. Within 10 sessions my shin splits were completely gone (I only did MAT work). From this point on I picked up extra shifts at work to pay for me Pilates obsession and became an instructor through he STOTT Method.
Training + Education
At 23 after having my son, Ryder, I decided to go back to my Pilates training and started my Classical Pilates journey. After 18 months of training, I graduated from my Classical Pilates program and opened up a studio in 2013. In the 7 years since then, I've trained thousands of people for their various needs--including teaching others how to be better teachers!
With the pandemic hitting, I knew that this was a time for a change. So in 2020 after following my dream of starting an online business and creating something new even if it meant leaving behind everything familiar, I launched my online Pilates studio with an incredible community who were excited to find their Pilates practice more accessible from home,
Where I am today = VIRTUAL + ONLINE
In my new role as an online Pilates teacher you can now take on-demand class, live virtual session, or a 12-week program anywhere, anytime.

I'm probably sipping on some tea or chlorophyll water while I daydream about ways to help other movement lovers find the passion and excitement they need in order to stay active at home. That way, they'll stay active and spend more time with their family & friends #LiveMoreSpendLess
Yes, I am just your typical health nut. This is my ideal life! Drinking tea and water while dreaming up moves to get you out of that chair and on the floor with me (and maybe even some family)..
