My primary interest and focus has always been connecting the mind and the body to transform negative and limited behavior patterns and self-concepts.
My commitment to teaching health through movement systems such as Pilates and Yoga is a direct reflection of the impact it has personally had on my self-esteem, positive attitude and leadership skills. As the name suggests, The Good Space is found in the heart, and with much gratitude and devotion, my passion and message is to bring out the potential that each of us has to offer; for our self, our family, our community, our world…
I always thought that if I could inspire everyone who ever had a dream to follow it, to have the courage and self-esteem to attempt, to just try, to make that dream a reality, I would create a space that teaches the key ingredients needed to endure and succeed in realizing dreams.
So, I did. I created The Good Space. I inspire others through Pilates.
After years of living in LA, and studying everything from obscure spirituality systems yoga and dance, acting and, of course, the fine art of waiting tables and managing restaurants, I decided to move home to Houston and go into business with my mother, who had built a successful facials and massage company. My ideal was to create a place of transformation, whether it was reshaping an eyebrow, reshaping a body, or the most complex transformation of all: reshaping a life.
What’s always amazed me about Pilates is that it’s being driven, powered and expanded by women. Women! Both amazing and ordinary women are fueling an entire industry that asks only that we train ourselves to be open to empowerment. Pilates offers us the opportunity to transform our bodies and our minds. It offers us confidence, clarity of vision and the overwhelming joy that comes from a dream realized. And women are out there embracing that philosophy. I see them every time I walk in my studio, in my instructors, in my clients, in my mother and in myself.
Pilates is power, the power to change, the power to improve, not only ourselves, but our families, our employees, our community, our world. In Pilates, I have found my good space. And I now offer The Good Space to anyone willing to come forth and embrace it.
