This gang is THE BOMB!!

Moving Spirit started, some 20 years ago, as a one-woman operation in my basement. Over the years, it has evolved and grown in ways I could not have imagined back then.  A beautiful commercial space, new Pilates equipment and larger group programs, collaborations with other movement educators and therapists: Moving Spirit is fast becoming a destination studio for movement, healthy physicality and embodied learning.

None of this could have happened without a whole lot of help. I thank my lucky stars everyday for the fabulous people I have supporting ME in supporting YOU! So now, I’d like to formally introduce the fantastic team that keeps me together and makes sure things are running smoothly behind the scenes!
