These video clips show you traditional Pilates exercises done on the equipment available in the studio, but also show you how you can adapt them to your own practice at home.

The Lianne & Friends Awaken A Better You Cruise 

I was so thrilled to be part of an amazing team of experts that Lianne Laing handpicked for a Wellness Cruise like no other. In October of 2019, we set sail for a week-long cruise along the Danube River, starting in Budapest and finishing in Vilshofen.


I had the wonderful experience of teaching Pilates and Fascia/Stretch classes in such beautiful settings, exploring 5 countries I had never been to, learning from the other amazing experts, and growing friendships with not only our team of experts but with fellow passengers. From all the workouts to workshops on beauty, nutrition, relationships, meditation, and essential oils, there was never a dull moment and an experience I will cherish for a lifetime.
