Why do you love Pilates?
I love Pilates because it helped me escape the cycle of chronic neck and low back pain. Honestly, I don’t know where I’d be without Pilates. It has been part of my life since the late 90s, and eventually lead me to a “semi-retirement” career that I absolutely love.
What Brought You to Pilates MN?
I’d like to say PilatesMN found me. I was referred to Pam by one of her former employees shortly after I completed my Pilates training. I still remember the day I met Pam, it just felt like a great fit. Fortunately for me, Pam agreed! I love that PilatesMN is grounded in the foundation of Physical Therapy and cares about educating our clients, keeping them safe, challenged, and pain-free.
Barbara Kingsolver is one of my favorite authors. She has a way with words that touch my heart and help connect me with my own community and nature. If I have to pick a favorite, it is her 2nd novel, "Animal Dreams".
“Crazy in Alabama” - it is a quirky film full of life’s most important lessons: being honest, respecting others, and the importance of our freedom and the freedom to pursue our dreams.
Right now “The Highwomen” is my favorite CD, and “Crowded Table” and “Redesigning Women” are my favorite songs. Literally, I can’t stop listening to this entire CD. It’s a very unique collaboration of inspiring songs from beginning to end and one of my all-time favorite artists, Brandi Carlile, is a member of this amazing collaborative effort.
