GYROTONIC ® Instructor, Nutrition Coach, Personal Trainer
This is My Story
Before I decided to become a Gyrotonic Instructor, this method had been a part of my life as an athlete for over 10 years. I grew up dancing and at a young age developed a clicking sound in my hip when I would move and bend my leg. By age 15, the clicking sound had worsened and was now accompanied by pain that I thought might have me leaving the dance world behind.
Fortunately at that time, I was accepted to participate in the summer program at Alonzo King’s LINES Ballet in San Francisco. The program included the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® and within a month of starting, my injuries were gone and never an issue again. For the first time in years I danced pain free! At 18, I moved to San Francisco to study with the LINES Ballet Training Program for two years where I took the opportunity to continue my Gyrotonic studies with San Francisco program. It not only assisted me in aligning and healing my body, it became a way to ground and collect myself for each day. I new at that point I wanted to facilitate peoples’ healing through this system and got to do what ever it took to become a trainer.
At age 20, I moved overseas to pursue my dance career with Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Masa in Israel. After a year of not doing Gyrotonic exercise I really felt how much I (and my body) missed it. Upon returning to the states, I moved back to San Francisco to start my official training to become a Gyrotonic Instructor under the instruction of Master Trainer Debra Rose.
I have been a Certified Gyrotonic Instructor since 2012 and working in the Orange County area. My goal now is to provide rehabilitation and knowledge of the body while giving you the edge to be the best version of your self.
