(Please also see my Pilates/MELT website... www.pilatesandmelt.com)

I am both an authentic classical Pilates instructor, certified to teach every exercise on every piece of equipment that Joseph Pilates created, and a fully certified MELT instructor.
The combination of these two modalities (that go so well together) will change how you feel, look, move and age. With MELT I can, in just a few sessions, teach you how to self-treat yourself to feel better (so you won’t have to keep hiring me!) and with Pilates I can help you reconnect to your body, realign, strengthen, stretch and get you feeling and looking better than you ever have. The advantage of my specific training and experience is that I can both train professional athletes and I can rehabilitate seniors recovering from major surgery. It's for everyone!

And if you still want to read more about me-here’s a little bio:
As the daughter of internationally acclaimed ballet dancers, I have been a lifelong student of movement. I studied dance around the world (including the renowned Vaganova Academy in St. Petersburg) and am a graduate of the Boston Ballet School Professional Division. I expanded my performance training by majoring in theatre and orchestral conducting at Wellesley College and received my MFA in theatre from Trinity Rep. Conservatory.

I regularly took Pilates classes as part of my early dance training. But it wasn’t till many years later when I began private sessions that I learned first hand the true potential that Pilates has to heal the body (my lifelong back pain was gone after a month!). Because of this, I enrolled in the world renowned Romana’s Pilates (http://romanaspilates.com) certification program in New York and my passion for Pilates and it’s incredible results with all my clients literally changed the course of my career and life. In addition to an active practice in NYC, I have spent multiple seasons as a guest teacher at the Authentic Pilates Studio in Oxford, England and have worked with clients ranging in ability from polio victims to former Olympic Hockey players.

In addition to teaching Pilates and MELT, and acting onstage, I am also an acting instructor, specializing in acting for dancers and movement for actors.
