I believe the human body possesses an innate wisdom and purity of purpose. With the use of intentional movement, mindful patience, and a light-hearted approach, I endeavor to reawaken this natural, healthy state in each of my clients. Pilates offers everyone an opportunity to meet their body, head, and heart in a daily practice. It will bring health and healing to every client willing to face the challenge. But the challenges are real and the patience and perseverance of my long term clients is extraordinary. I am grateful to be a daily witness to the human capacity for change and healing.

I first encountered Pilates mat as a high school student at North Carolina school of the Arts, and I continued to study Pilates at summer intensives with the American Dance Festival, the Parsons Dance Company, and as a scholarship student with the London Contemporary Dance Center.  Before opening Holden Pilates, I began my teaching at UW Madison as an adjunct instructor in Pilates and contemporary dance. For the years following, I have been a movement instructor at the Monkey Bar Gym, Georgie’s Pilates Loft, Kehl’s School of Dance, Stoughton Center for the Performing Arts, Pilates at Quarry Arts, Bliss Flow Yoga, The Studio, Harbor Wellness, and Madison Pilates (where I held a teacher training position for Midwest Pilates Institute). Most recently, I guest instructed Yoga and Pilates classes at Santani Resort and Spa in Sri Lanka. I recommend that everyone look into visiting!

I was initially certified in mat with Physicalmind Institute and am comprehensively trained by Core Dynamics Pilates under the tutelage of second generation instructor Michelle Larson. I earned a comprehensive Yoga certification from the Nosara Yoga Institute in Costa Rica as well as attending teacher training in Anusara Yoga under Christina Sell.

Like many clients, I was drawn to Pilates as a way to regain strength after two pregnancies and years of working at a computer. What I did not expect to find was a new career. Originally a clinical pharmacist, I’m able to draw from my patient care experience and take a broad approach to health and wellness. My goal is to work with each client’s unique set of strengths and challenges to create a balanced body.

I’m certified in the classical Pilates method through Peak Pilates. I offer private and group lessons on the mat, reformer, Cadillac, chair and more.

Outside of Pilates, my favorite things are my family, adventurous cooking, Lake Superior beaches and U.P. trails.

I received my certification in the Authentic Pilates Method from Power Pilates in NYC. Since 2002, I’ve taught the Classical Pilates Method of Body Conditioning in New York and now in Madison, WI. Expect an energizing workout, in which I will help address your individual needs, and create a centered and relaxed place in which you may find yourself more able and prepared for life’s daily challenges.

I enjoy working with clients of all ages and abilities and strive to help improve posture, increase strength and flexibility, decrease muscle tension, aches and pains, and enhance overall body awareness.

I’m a former marathon runner, volleyball player and golfer. Outside of the studio, I like to spend my spare time running trails.

Pilates has given me remarkable strength throughout my inner core group of muscles. I feel noticeably taller and supported. Even more, I possess a new-found confidence that my body will stay up to par for future hikes, kayak trips, biking, road trips and camping adventures. It’s up to everyone to give him or herself a quality life. Pilates is a great way to invest in oneself. No matter what ailments you have, a Pilates practice will help you gain and maintain stability, mobility, and strength throughout your body. I love to help people wake up the mind-body connection and strengthen their core with the Pilates method. Concentration, control, precision, breath, and flow are some of the Pilates principles that you will focus on through out your Pilates training. Absolutely everyone can do Pilates, come try it, your back and body are worth the investment.

I’ve taught Pilates for EJ Movement, Harbor Wellness, PilatesSpa International and I am currently a lead instructor at Club Pilates.

I am comprehensibly trained through the Pilates teacher training program, Midwest Pilates Institute. I started taking Pilates lessons in 2007 and have taken weekly lessons ever since. I love the functional strength and flexibility I recieve from Pilates. It allows me to continue doing all the other activities that I love: running, cycling, lifting weights, water skiing, and hiking (the list goes on and on…). I especially enjoy sharing my passion for Pilates and its benefits with others wanting to improve their mobility, coordination, agility and overall strength through functional and dynamic movement.

I  teach Pilates part-time and am available evenings and on Saturdays. By day, I am Senior Vice President of a consulting firm in Madison.

Mind and body practices have been a central part of my life for half a century. I’m certified in both Yoga and Pilates and have taught on-and-off for nearly 40 years, although the majority of that time I spent as a historian of science.  Since 2002 I have returned to a serious study of Pilates, and for the two years prior to joining the team at Holden Pilates, I instructed at Jules Pilates.  Until recently, I pursued natural horsemanship and taught Pilates to my fellow riders.  I depend on a regular Pilates practice to keep doing the things I enjoy – hiking, dog-walking, and gardening.  But sharing the life-enhancing benefits of Pilates is at the top of my list of favorite activities.
