Background and Experience

P1020651I have over twenty five years experience in the fitness industry.  My first yoga certification was obtained in 2007, I went on to take 200 hour yoga teacher training.  I received a personal trainer certificate from the Cooper Aerobics Institute in their Physical Fitness Specialist program.  I also certified others to teach fitness through the National Exercise Training Association (NETA formerly NDEITA).  My current certification is with the American Council on Exercise (ACE) as a Group Fitness Instructor.  I’m also certified to teach Mediative Movements TM and a certified Power of Breath trainer.  I have a specialty certification in Post-Orthopedic Rehabilitation for Personal Trainers.
