Here’s a Bit More About Us

I have a passion for helping people discover and grow their inner core strengths. My goal is to offer thoughtful, compassionate wellness modalities to my clients, personalizing workouts to suit individual needs. For over 25 years I have developed a program approach and wide knowledge base in many exercise disciplines to help  clients feel better, move better and look better. Some of my trainings and specialties are: Pilates mat and equipment teacher – CORE Dynamics Pilates and PHI Pilates, Pilates for Multiple Sclerosis and Neurological Conditions, Hole In One Pilates for Golf, Tai Chi for Fall Prevention/ Arthritis teacher (Dr. Paul Lam), Seated Tai Chi for Arthritis, Tai Chi for Balance, Tai Chi for Energy, Tai Chi Yang Style 24 Form, AFAA Personal Fitness Training, SilverSneakers and YMCA Active Older Adult training.
I love to  work with a wide variety of ages and needs, and I have years of teaching and experience working with mature clients, as well as working with special conditions like Arthritis, ALS, MS and Parkinson’s Disease.
In January, 2015, I opened Ellio Pilates, Tai Chi & More in Fort Myers, FL. My mission is to provide thoughtful, responsible and appropriate guidance for people of all ages who seek to live healthier lives with less pain and more vigor using mind-body connecting forms of exercise.
