I became a fitness instructor because I have always been fortunate enough to enjoy an incredibly healthy and active lifestyle being both a former collegiate soccer player and former collegiate gymnast. As an athlete, I have always had access to custom workouts, knowledge, and coaching techniques that helped me perform at such a high level of competition. Not everyone has that opportunity and being a fitness instructor, I am able to encourage and inspire participants to find their "inner athlete" and to push themselves to be the very best they can be every day while pursuing an activity that they personally love doing.

I love being able to show my enthusiasm and spread my passion for fitness to others. With the formats I teach, I am able to teach an endurance workout into something fun and energetic that draws participants in, keeps them engaged, and continues to want more--even when we have 32 squat pulses with no breaks. Nothing is more satisfying than your participants loving the workout, sharing their energy and enthusiasm with one another, and seeing results from the workout after being consistent over time.

Formats: Cycle 

Over the years so many people have told me that I've inspired them to either be an instructor, take their fitness to the next level, or they were just too intimidated to step into the group ex room and I helped overcome that fear. Fitness is fun and shouldn't feel like a chore. The group exercise room should feel like a place where you can make friends, lose weight, get fit, be a part of a team, set goals, show off your new sneakers.

After years of taking fitness classes in graduate school and as an employee, an instructor approached me and said "I think you'd make a great instructor".  I had wanted to teach for so long but didn't have the courage to try.  She gave me that push and helped me turn my passion for personal fitness into a passion for sharing it.

I am a sophomore double majoring in Communications and French. As a former dancer, I naturally transitioned into yoga after discovering its magic. I completed my 200 hour Teacher Training at Dhyana Yoga in Philadelphia, giving me a firm traditional background in Ashtanga/Vinyasa yoga. I combine this knowledge with my experience in dance to create beautiful, energizing, and invigorating flows. Connecting breath with movement, you will leave feeling healed and restored - mind, body, and spirit.
