Can I coach you?
- If you are a woman on a mission but you just need a renewal, re-commitment and to feel re-energized.
- If you are holding on to physical and emotional pain, weight, blame-game & victim-hood and know you need a change.
- If you would benefit from awakening your latent divine potential. ...then I would love to support you.
Accept my invitation to join my one-to-one personalized a deep-diving, mind-shifting, body-shaping, creative journey, my 12 week Quest called Nobody does You Better'. I strongly believe, until we truly know and love ourselves, we will often stumble in communing with others. As the saying goes, the relationship we have with ourselves is the relationship we have with others.
As a Mover, I bring all my life’s Health & Fitness experiences and deep passion for Pilates, whole mind, body, and spiritual practice to my coaching. The traditional Pilates Principles and philosophy are the tenants upon which I base my coaching and 'Core-Activator' system on. You can learn about what is included in my private coaching program Nobody does YOU better here.
As a Visual & Conceptual artist, years of past experiences creating work for exhibitions around the world, as well as my numerous contracts in print and digital media; radio, television, marketing, hospitality, and tourism, I am acutely observant to client’s needs. I am innately sensitive to the significance and unique beauty of each client’s presence, thought-process, body language, and movement patterns. I am genuine, honest, motivating, and open in my coaching style. It so happens that those are the attributes that suit some people best and why I can motivate you to achieve! But I am not for everyone. If you want a 'yes-woman', ego-stoking, bullshit artist, then so sorry, I'm not the woman for you. To learn more about the quest and how we can work together please email to arrange a Discovery call with me.
Starting with the fundamentals, we will work from the premise that,
“Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness. To achieve the highest accomplishments within the scope of our capabilities in all walks of life we must constantly strive to acquire strong, healthy bodies and develop our minds to the limit of our ability.” Joseph H Pilates, Return to Life through Contrology, 1945
Having trained and worked with individuals between the ages of 8 to 98,
of every level of fitness, from healthy, rehabilitative, pre & post-operative clients to Olympic athletes,
I have found Mr. Pilates' statement above holds true for all.
Discipline and drive for one's whole person is the making of a strong foundation of sweet success.
