The Body Shop of Sauk Prairie is owned and operated by two women who met each other through practicing Pilates! We pride ourselves on keeping the atmosphere in our studio light and relaxing. Think of our studio as 50 minutes of YOU time, where the tension of your day falls away! We want our slice of heaven to be your happy place to escape to!
We understand that Pilates and other forms of exercise are a financial investment! Pilates is truly amazing and we want everyone to be able to experience it! One of our goals when deciding to open our studio was to try to make our classes affordable so we could spread the Pilates love! By offering a variety of classes with a range of prices we hope we are able to introduce Pilates into more people's lives!
I have always been a mover, enjoying things like Yoga, Aerial Arts, Dance and Pilates. I started doing more Pilates after a neck injury and realized that after practicing on a regular basis, I was pain free and my body and spine had changed dramatically. I knew that I wanted to teach this practice to help others feel the amazing difference that Pilates can bring into anyone's life! I have been teaching since 2016 and officially became certified in 2017. I am classically trained and love incorporating breath work and fundamental exercises into my classes to encourage deep mind body connection throughout class.
My career as a Pilates instructor started rather unexpectedly when I accepted a front desk position at a Pilates studio. I started taking classes during downtime at work and fell madly in love! I knew I wanted Pilates in my life for the long haul and I started my teacher training program as soon as possible. I have been actively teaching clients since 2014 and I officially became a Certified Pilates Instructor in 2016.
Although I am classically trained, I love incorporating modern takes on classical Pilates exercises and often include dumbbells, resistance bands, and other props in my classes. I enjoy teaching Pilates as much as I enjoy practicing Pilates and I try to let that shine through in every lesson and class that I teach!
I began my career as a corporate road warrior, but never felt quite fulfilled nor happy in my work all the while sneaking movement into my life wherever I could. What followed was a decade of intense chronic illness. My road to recovery led me to the wonderful world of Pilates and the numerous health benefits I personally experienced, body and mind. I am passionate about spreading the Pilates experience through teaching its magic to others, in combination with my Integrative Health Coaching services. I am here to help you find and be the best you!
