About

With a passion for being healthy and fit, I have developed an innovative health and fitness program, Core Flow Fitness™, inspired by my own love for the joy and benefits of movement.  Combining my own fitness training and body knowledge with 10+ years of experience teaching dance and nutrition, Core Flow provides health-conscious individuals an efficient, non-impact method of physical fitness and well being that will enable you to know your body better and move more freely through your life.

At 19 years of age, while pursuing a career as a professional dancer, I sustained a serious back injury that left me with a fracture at L4.  I now had lower back weakness, sciatica and a broken vertebra.  Although fusion surgery was recommended, I opted for traditional physical therapies and tried to figure out on my own how to get out of pain.  By integrating deep stretching and strengthening exercises into my training, I continued to develop my love of movement and my knowledge of body mechanics to an even deeper level.

Over time, I began to include progressive fitness concepts, including Pilates, Yoga, Dance and Core training, which resulted in a magical mixture of muscular training, stretching and movement mechanics – Core Flow!

I am now in my 50s and, thanks to the Core Flow techniques, in the best physical shape of my life, ready to ski, run, dance and, as a single working parent, play all day with my high-energy 10-year-old son.

Through the years, Core Flow has attracted a multitude of followers, from young adults to baby boomers and from athletes and dancers to those trying a fitness class for the first time in their life.  All have found an opportunity to get in better shape, strengthen their core, increase their balance, improve their posture or even address a particular physical issue.

Now, through expanded class schedules, Core Flow DVDs and online custom training programs, I have the opportunity to help even more people discover the benefits of Core Flow techniques.

I look forward to teaching you how to integrate Core Flow into your lifestyle, providing you with a non-impact, no-strain fitness program and helping you live in a world of physical freedom, optimum mobility and inner grace.
