Hi! I'm the SLK in Silk :)
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 world. I've been training fitness instructors for nearly 15 years, and coaching real people (just like you) for decades.
Within the fitness industry I've been called a "visionary" and "ahead of my time". I pioneered the Foot Fitness category in the early 2000's and now I know that Moving Meditation is the next generation of fitness. My work is an evolving practice of self-healing through postural feedback and energy work; I draw from studies in Shamanism, Transformative Arts, and Reiki. I earned my 500 RYT in Mysore, India, but consider myself a “fitness-chick”; having represented prominent brands, internationally, as a Program Developer and Master Trainer: Schwinn, BOSU, Peak Pilates, Nike, and Vibram FiveFingers.
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. My classes are moderate-intensity and for students of all levels. I'm in for the long-haul, folks. I want to help you to be better connected with your body and emotions - and also help to 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.
