I discovered Burdo Studios while suffering from back pain. I tried various interventions with no results and sought help from an orthopedic doctor who suggested Pilates. Wondering how Pilates could help, Laura Burdo was introduced to me. After assessing my body and alignment, we started working together.

After several sessions, I started feeling better, my back improved, and I stood taller. That’s when I became a Pilates enthusiast! After years of training in the Studio, I developed a desire to become a Certified Pilates Fitness Instructor ~ licensed by The American Fitness Professionals & Associates.

I am excited to share this passion with others as I found Pilates invigorating for the mind, body, and spirit. Teaching Pilates has now become my second career, although my background has always been in education. I am incredibly grateful that I discovered Pilates, not only due to the personal & physical improvements, but also for the privilege to help others experience similar results. No matter an individual’s beginning abilities, practicing Pilates will build strength, alignment, and well-being.

My goal as a Pilates Instructor is to challenge you by keeping a steady pace in class while encouraging good consistent form until it becomes as transformational for you as it has been for me!

I reside in Loveland with my husband; in our free time we enjoy visiting our sons and exploring new adventures. Always happy to delight with good tunes in the studio! 🎼

I’ve always had a desire to create and to design. My academic background began at The Savannah College of Art & Design where I studied the field of Fashion ~ completing my education at The Cincinnati Art Academy majoring in Marketing & Merchandising.

For Burdo Studios, I collaborate on various creative projects and promotions.

Fitness-wise, (naturally) I have a passion for Pilates, but running may just be my fav! I’ve participated in The Flying Pig Marathon in past years and loved every aspect of it.

I currently reside in Colorado with my husband, Tim. We live an active life raising three amazing kids.
