How did you get into Barre fitness?

After having my second son via an emergency C-section 2 years ago, I had a lot of trouble recovering. My core strength was gone and my back pain just kept getting worse. We had just re-located to Nyack, from Fort Drum, NY. I knew I need to start “working out” but I wanted something new, fresh, and dancers body oriented. I found Soul Flyte and the rest is history.

What’s your background?

I grew up as a competition dancer. I pursued a BFA in theater and a dance and acting career after that. I danced for two NBA teams and earned my union cards in theater and TV. But a huge part of my passion was passing on my love of the arts and I have always taught dance to tots-teens and also got certified to teach Zumba, Yoga, and now Barre.

Why Barre?

I love that Barre fuses Ballet, Pilates and Functional Fitness for the ultimate full body workout, yet it is still technically a low impact workout. Although, your sweat and muscles will try to tell you otherwise.

Any comments to your future students?

I’m grateful to join the Soul Flyte squad and I’m looking forward to meeting you. We will sweat, laugh, and inspire each other one rep at a time.
