Ritual Pilates arrives in San Diego on June 1st! Previously located in uptown Oakland.I'm excited to be opening in the historic Spreckels Theater Building located downtown. The space is intimate yet bright and fully equipped with Gratz equipment. 

Movement has always been the answer to my life's questions. Run, spin, yoga, dance, snowboard, surf- I love it all. I've always been a mover and it's how I keep myself feeling good: mind, body, and spirit. I found Pilates fifteen years ago and it has changed my body and how I move for the better. It has also made all of the above better, stronger, and more fun. And now, since the birth of my daughter in 2014, I rely on The Method more than ever to keep strong and feeling good in my own skin.

I have completed the Masters program at Vintage Pilates led by Jay Grimes in Los Angeles. Jay Grimes is a first generation master instructor taught directly by Joseph Pilates. I have been teaching The Pilates Method for over a decade and continue to learn from those who were taught by Joseph Pilates himself or who studied w/ his direct students: Jay Grimes, Karen Frischmann, and Sandy Shimoda to name a few.

Joseph Pilates put it best, "Pilates develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind, and elevates the spirit." I enjoy seeing those words manifest in my clients' work and I love witnessing the improvements that happen in their bodies.
