Licensed Acupuncturist, Instructor
I opened Clasique Acupuncture & Pilates Studio in 2009, where I am a practicing acupuncturist and Pilates teacher-trainer. Here I train apprentices in a Classical Pilates mentorship program of my own, RETURN.
Classical Pilates is a rich system, offering clarity, structure and ample room for creativity and growth. Our Pilates practice gives us something to lean into throughout seasons of change, leaving ourselves and then returning home to ourselves.
Chinese Medicine is like this, too. It’s an art—a healing art that connects our bodies to our emotions and our spirit. A philosophy that is a guide for the ongoing journey of self-becoming.
Weaving these two together is intuitive for me, and now is central to how I craft my personal life and all my entrepreneurial endeavors, whether it be here at Clasique, the CoreSelf Seasonal community online, powerful custom athlete training work, or how I train Pilates apprentices and mentor instructors.
I discover again and again throughout my practice of both Chinese Medicine and Classical Pilates how empowering, intertwined, and complementary these modes of medicine are - because, yes, I think of Pilates as medicine... movement is medicine. My passion is to support people to feel whole as they are, inspired to find deeper strength and natural grace in their lives, and empowered on their paths of embodiment, wellness and joy.
After my years of practicing and teaching, I can promise you this: you are stronger than you ever imagined, and with this work, you can astonish yourself.
