What is your favorite inspirational quote?
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people perm
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” – Marianne Williamson

What do you love most about teaching spinning®/yoga/pilates?
What I love most about teaching spinning is that it provides that greatest medium for me to coach others to find their “best” on all levels – body, heart, mind and soul. As an Exercise Physiologist, Wellness Coach & Triathlete, I LOVE to take people on a journey within themselves—one that many don’t get to experience on a daily basis, if ever. So I like to teach practical life skills (like proper breathing to minimize stress) and help people to embrace their inner power and amazingness that they don’t often know is there and if they do, maybe don’t know how to access it. Also, because I am a lover of music of all kinds, I love how I can bring different genres in to match the goals and objectives I have for each of my classes, while creating a FUN, inspiring, heart-filling experience for all!
