You were once wild here. Don't let them tame you. - Isadora Duncan
Pilates is about finding success in movement its not about making ideal shapes. That's my approach to teaching. I try to bring that across by finding joy in the practice and not taking it all too seriously.
I have a major leggings obsession and now that American Apparel is out of business I am not totally sure what I'm going to do with my life.
In my studio we like to have a little background music playing. Currently its the XX all day every day. They are just mellow enough to not be distracting but still really beautiful.
I go to the ballet more times than my budget will allow... the perks of living in NYC and I take full advantage of it. Romeo and Juliet makes me cry every time.
