TEASER! What is your favorite and least favorite Pilates exercise?
Favorite exercise: standing leg series facing side and front because I just love working out my legs!
Least favorite: I don’t really have a “least favorite” I love any challenge thrown at me and if it’s hard, I just want to work harder at it, not dislike it…

Describe your teaching style on one word.
What makes you smile?
