I teach group Pilates classes in New Canaan and duets and private Pilates in Stamford. I love to work on the Reformer, Tower, Cadillac, Pilates Chairs and Barrels. This is a group doing bridging on the Pilates Tower at the New Canaan YMCA.

Pilates classes, duets and privates are customized to help you feel strong, flexible and serene. Sessions vary from super-sweaty and intense and more flow-like, depending on the level and need. Pilates Reformers, towers, chairs and barrels may be used.

My in-home private studio is open and CDC compliant (and then some)! Rates

“You will feel better in ten sessions, look better in twenty sessions, and have a completely new body in thirty sessions.” . . . “Pilates is complete coordination of body, mind and spirit.”   --Joseph Pilates

Teaching group barre classes at Halo Studios in New Canaan was so much fun. We'd pack the room, play pop music and pulse and sweat. I encorporated Pilates, strength training, functional training and yoga for my female and male clients of all ages.

Check my schedule for classes including outdoor Pilates and Yoga fusion; Barre & BeyondTM, a ballet- and Pilates-inspired toning class set to popular music; TRX Zone Challenge; Core & More; Pilates Mat and Apparatus; Pre- and post-natal fitness classes; Mat-based Pilates; boot camps and fitness yoga.

This is me teaching a group fitness class with clients from Florida. I mostly teach Pilates mat and appartus now in Stamford, but I loved this day. My clients wanted a sweaty workout with functional training using medicine balls, kettlebells and bodyweight training on the mat.

Grab a friend—or a few friends—for a Pilates mat or strength training workout that is geared toward getting you fit together, while working as a team and having fun. Together, we set a schedule good for all, and a progressive workout for all levels, including pre- and post-natal participants. Pilates, weight circuits, Boxing, TRX, yoga fusion and more. Outdoor classes running seasonally. Rates

This was a special holiday barre and Pilates class fundraiser I held in New Canaan. I now teach mostly private and duet Pilates and do in-home training for private clients to help them with injuries, to get strong, lose weight and look good.

I am happy to donate my time for a charity close to your heart. Or, think about celebrating your birthday or a special occasion with a customized barre, Pilates or circuit class. In addition, I am available to help you train for an upcoming event, such as a race, hiking trip or walkathon, or to get you ready for a special day, including a reunion, wedding, "big" birthday or seeing your college roommate for the first time in 10 years!

I help clients feel strong and lose weight and inches through private Pilates and personal training sessions in Stamford. My clients travel from New Canaan, Pound Ridge, Greenwich, Stamford and come to me virtually too. I teach the Pilates mat syllabus, including the 100 and the teaser for all levels. I modify for all.

Whether you are 16 or 116, I will put together a program designed to achieve your goals. Together, we can work on gaining muscle, losing weight, strengthening your core, achieving better balance, training for an event, overall conditioning, injury recovery, reducing stress, all of the above and more. Sessions may include, weight lifting, TRX, kettle bells, Pilates, cardio, yoga stretches, and core work--whatever is right for you. Fitness assessments are included, and I will provide training, nutritional and lifestyle guidance to help you during the hours we aren't together.
