Why do I practice?

Simply said, the practice (whether it’s asana, pranayama, or meditation) makes me feel better, happier, and more grounded. It empowers me to believe in and trust myself and to live my life more meaningfully.

Why do I teach?

I believe that playing and being challenged on the mat teaches us many of the skills we need to face challenges off the mat and to live a happy, conscious, and fulfilling life. It is an amazing privilege to guide my students, to help them find the tools they need to explore their human nature, and to witness their transformations and breakthroughs.

Energy and intention of my classes

playful and educational

My life’s motto

If I don’t like the results, I can change my choices.

What am I grateful for?

I am grateful for the ever-present possibility to try again and learn more.

What does connection mean to me?

Everything I think, say, and do affects not only myself but everyone and everything around me. Knowing that I am connected with the world inspires me to be kinder and more thoughtful about what I choose to feel and to express.

Other activities

I have a PhD in nuclear physics. I freelance as a science editor and hold a position in the editorial office of the Journal of Industrial Ecology (Yale / NTNU). In between enjoying nature (in water if at all possible) and writing my first book, I am dreaming of creating an animal sanctuary.

    Why do I practice?

    Pilates, and yoga too for that matter, keeps me grounded. It tunes me in to my intentions and priorities, while helping to drown out the noise of a busy life. Pilates is my self-care routine. 

    Why do I teach?

    Easy. Pilates makes my body and my mind more resilient and balanced, and I can’t help but want to share that with others. I love to see others grow, master new skills, and take safe risks under my guidance.

    My life’s motto

    You don't grow when you're comfortable.

    What am I grateful for?

    New paths.

    What does connection mean to me?

    It’s why we are here on this planet. Without our connections to our inner selves or each other, life wouldn’t be as rich and meaningful. Through our connections, we can be our best selves and help others do the same.

    Other activities

    I work as a middle-school teacher. I'm a lover of thick books, chubby babies, and hairy dogs.
