I am an engineer turned movement educator. After many years in research and technology, I decided to take a break when my daughter was born in 2003. By chance I found Pilates and immediately knew that this was the answer to my neck and back problems. It inspired me to educate myself in anatomy and movement, and get certified in Pilates. After teaching Pilates for 10 years - mainly at Center of Balance in Mountain View, CA, under the tutelage of Tom McCook - I opened my own studio "Move Beyond Pilates" in Cupertino in 2016.

I love to take my clients on a journey of learning anatomy and movement, and help them take care of their muscles, bones, and joints, as well as their overall health. My main goal is to assist my clients in changing how they move (and not move), not only in the studio, but in every aspect of their life. I am always striving to learn more and find better ways to educate and teach my clients in a way that creates positive change in their body. I teach functional movement mixing Pilates, CoreAlign, and Franklin Method to create the best results for the client in front of me.
