Meet Our Instructors
Movement professionals at The NOCO Pilates Company in Windsor, CO
Pi-Yo-Co Director, Pilates and Yoga Professional and Franklin Method Level 1 Instructor
I began my journey in 1996 studying Ashtanga Yoga at Aims Community College, and I later received my Yoga teaching certification through AAAI/ISMA. In 2003 I completed my Pilates training at the world renowned Pilates Center in Boulder, Colorado.
I have been blessed with the amazing experience to run and operate my own studio since 2003. I began at the Health Club at Pelican Lakes from 2003-2010 and then on to birth the Yoga Pilates Center at the Fort Collins club directing and managing their program for 2 years, from 2007-2009. The opportunity to take on The Windsor Pilates Yoga Studio in June of 2010 added to the unbelievably divine and fortunate events of my journey. We bought the studio and changed the name to The Pilates Yoga company in November of 2010 and moved back to Pelican Lakes in 2017 where we still are today.
During this time I’ve continued to certify in many contemporary Pilates apparatus, as well as Franklin Method and Facsinator. More than 2 decades of guidance in movement and I’m still learning and personifying these techniques.
I am grateful and look forward to providing outstanding service to current clientele as well as giving new clients the experience of these modalities.
Balanced Body Certified Pilates Instructor
My fascination with movement began as a young adult after the joy and freedom of moving without pain was taken away from me. At 17 a perfect storm of events caused my health to spiral downward and changed my world as I knew it. I suffered from chronic pain and a neurological disorder that left me mostly bed bound for the next 5 years.
I began to regain health as I worked with an OT that specializes in a form of bodywork called Myofascial Therapy. As my body began to heal it was clear I needed to relearn how to move! That is when Pilates came into my life. I worked with a Physical Therapist who used Pilates as a tool to teach movement. That allowed me to begin to break free from the ties that bound my body and the fear that had restricted my movement for so many years. I began to experience joy and freedom in moving again. That is where my passion and fascination of the human body and its power to heal began.
I pursued an education in both John Barnes Myofascial Release (MFR) and Pilates through the Balanced Body training program. I believe that these two modalities complement each other in the most powerful way. MFR provides deep, authentic healing and Pilates makes functional movement accessible and fun! Pilates is so much more than an exercise regimen. It is a way to address dysfunctional movement patterns that may lead to injury down the road, or retrain muscles due to an old injury or chronic pain. I love using Pilates as a tool to help people tune into their bodies and find efficient movement that feels good!
Pilates Instructor | NPCP, NCSF-CPT
I moved to Windsor in August 2022 after spending 10 years in Austin, TX. It was time for a change of climate and scenery! One thing that hasn’t changed is my love for movement. As a Pilates Method Alliance Certified Teacher, I have been teaching mat and apparatus classes since 2014. Whether working with clients 1-1, or in a small-group setting, I focus on individual needs and goals. I enjoy working with pregnant/post-natal women, injured/rehab clients, young adults to seniors with scoliosis and spondylolysis, as well as recreational and high-performing athletes. As a competitive athlete, with my fair share of injuries, my Pilates practice helps me to maintain an awareness of correct body mechanics and postural alignment. I also hold a Personal Strength and Fitness Certification through the National Council on Strength & Fitness (NCSF); and an Advanced Diploma in Personal Nutrition from NCFE (Northern Council for Further Education). I am interested in applied neurology training, the fascial system, and scar tissue release therapy. When I’m not moving my body -Pilates, running, cycling – I enjoy cooking, crocheting, and drinking tea.
