Fitness Background: My journey in fitness began as an Olympic level soccer player in the PNW, where I developed a strong work ethic and a dedication to pushing my limits. Today, while high-intensity movement remains a driving force in my life, I have developed a profound understanding of what my body needs. I am focused on finding ways to stay in motion for as long as possible.
This is where Lagree comes in. It has been a transformative experience, allowing me to establish a strong mind-body connection. With Lagree, I can indulge in the high-intensity movement I crave without subjecting my joints to excessive stress. In less than 40 minutes, I can achieve a flow state and work up a sweat. It is, without a doubt, one of the most efficient and effective formsof movement I have encountered. It perfectly complements the physical therapy exercises I have relied on to rehabilitate my joints over the years. This is precisely why I am devoted to teaching Lagree. (I cannot imagine instructing something I am not wholeheartedly passionate about.)
I am certified by Duke University in Geriatric Yoga and have completed Trauma-Informed Yoga Training with Yoga Behind Bars. These certifications have given me a deeper understanding of the physical and emotional needs of individuals in various stages of life, allowing me to create inclusive and supportive fitness experiences under the Lagree method.
Why I love what I do: My teaching philosophy revolves around bringing fun to every Lagree class I teach. I believe that movement should be enjoyable and empowering, and I strive to create an environment where my clients feel motivated and excited to push themselves beyond their perceived limits.
