Qualifications: Dance Education Degree from the Hartford Ballet, 200 hr Yoga Alliance E-YRT, 22 years experience Lotte Berk Method, as lead teacher, teacher trainer, management, Since 2002, exhale- part of the founding team, executive VP of Movement Programming, and co-creator of Core Fusion program.

Personal History: Starting ballet at 5 years old, I fell in love with movement and dance beginning a life long journey of dance, fitness, and movement. Through ballet I went on to become a varsity cheerleader in high school for all 4 years while continuing my ballet studies and performing. The joy of movement and confidence that I encountered through my dance led to my wanting to share this with others. Thus I went to school for Dance Education and started to teach ballet. To expand my teaching horizon, I encountered the first exercise barre based technique at the Lotte Berk Method and starting teaching there in 1980. Today, I continue to be obsessed with this technique through Core Fusion! I love seeing the transformation of my students’ inner and outer lifestyle with this class.

Workout Philosophy: Along with Core Fusion co-creator Fred DeVito, we design our workouts based on the principles of strength, flexibility, and balanced cardio. We emphasize proper form through accurate position and alignment. We believe in longevity and that your fitness practice is a lifestyle that prepares you for any other sport or activity. We use body weight as resistance with a variety of movement patterns. The system we use motivates our students because they see results in how they look and how they feel with a relaxed calm energy.

Success Story: Kristin, a fashion blogger in NYC: she felt the pressure to get into shape for her career, committed herself to our program, and lost 30 lbs, dropped 3 dress sizes in 6 months taking exhale Core Fusion.
