Personal Bio: Fitness has always been a major aspect of my daily life. As a multi-sport athlete in high school, I always loved how I could test and push my body to its limits physically and mentally. I continued my athletic career swimming at Luther College (Go Norse!) and I still love to get a good pool workout in… just don’t ask me to swim more than 3,000 yds in one session! I started incorporating Pilates into my strengthening routine when I was swimming. It taught me body awareness, postural positioning, core stability, and proper breathing. I love how tuning in to and strengthening your postural muscle groups has such a significant impact on your overall mobility. I continue to use Pilates in my personal fitness routine and in clinical practice as a Physical Therapist and love bringing more challenging routines to all of you! Can’t wait to meet you on the mat!
