The joy of movement

I’ve been teaching group exercise classes since 2000. I strive to provide a high-energy, positive experience in which everyone feels welcomed, successful, and empowered to realize the joy of movement and music. I believe that movement is medicine for the soul, not just the body. The focus in my classes is on feeling good, sensing your own beauty and strength, and celebrating life. Moving together is also one of the best ways to build community. Join us in class! And look for my upcoming book The Joy of Movement in January 2020. Sign up for my monthly email newsletter to receive sneak peeks and other exclusives before the book is released. Follow me on Spotify for all the current playlists for my classes.
