PUNK PILATES

PUNK PILATES


Pilates is not just for rich, white, able-bodied cis-women.

Pilates is for *every* body.

Pilates is not just for rich, white, able-bodied cis-women.

Pilates is for *every* body.

Car accident. Shoulder dislocation. Fibromyalgia. Lymphatic disorder. Two torn meniscuses.

All these brought me to physical therapy in 2011, and again in 2017. It was here I was introduced to Pilates, both mat exercises and apparatus. I felt astounded by the effectiveness of such small movements, the tiny muscles activated and the elongation of joint spacing. I literally felt taller after each session. I began Peak Pilates Comprehensive Certification for Instructors in 2020, right before the pandemic began. To date, I have over 1000 hours of mat teaching experience.

Pilates provides training in core control and joint stabilization.

It’s especially beneficial for those who are *not* athletes, those who work at a desk, and those who have previous injuries and/or hypermobility. Pilates illuminates imbalances in the body (we all have them, and they are normal!), and adjusts the body to a more evenly stabilized state.

My special interest is in working with people who experience:

  • hypermobility, chronic illness and/or pain, ongoing effects from past or present injuries
  • alienation from their body, for any reason
  • anxiety and negative associations with movement
  • gatekeeping from others around movement

Movement is our birthright — from each according to their ability, to each according to their needs. The founder of Pilates said, “change begins with movement, and movement heals”.
