Hi! I'm the SLK in SiLK :)
I'm a fitness-chick-turned-yogi-meditating-mountain-chick. I began teaching group exercise classes in the late 80's, and never looked back. I've been a fitness trainer, program manager, studio owner, teacher-trainer, key-note speaker and conference presenter... all around the world.
I've spent decades working with the most innovative brands - including EQUINOX, Schwinn, BOSU, Nike, Peak Pilates, Vibram FiveFingers, VivoBarefoot and Savvier Fitness; developing successful fitness programming and accredited instructor education.
I'm also the founder and creator of a global fitness program called CARDIO YOGA (previously The willPower Method) which is taught by hundreds of instructors around the globe. I've been mentoring fitness instructors for nearly 15 years, and also coaching real people (just like you!)
This might sound weird, but, I am grateful to have been one of the pioneers of the Foot Fitness category in the early 2000's (how fit are your feet?) . Now the science is clear: strong, fit feet lead to better balance and enhanced performance. So, I help people get strong from the ground up.
As I look into the future of fitness, I predict that Moving Meditation is the next dimension of physical exercise. In our brave new world, people deserve a safe outlet to process life's rollercoaster. A smart combination of endorphins and emotions yields a productive approach to well-being! So, I guide strong, sweaty workout sessions that have mindful and emotional components.
I draw from studies in Shamanism, Transformative Arts, and Reiki. I'm a certified Meditation Coach and I've led trauma-informed yoga to US Vets recovering from PTSD. I earned my 500 RYT in Mysore, India, so my approach is a blend of east-meets-west, science meets intuition.
I launched this website with the onset of the pandemic, and am building a community of people who've chosen to exercise safely from home. These classes are moderate-intensity and for students of all levels. Exercise doesn't have to hurt to work. I want to help you to be better connected with your body and emotions - and also help you age with grace.
I'm real: no flash, no drama. I'll make mistakes and we can laugh together. Let's stay strong and go with the flow... Just like SiLK.
