Massage Therapist & Yoga Instructor
As most know, I am an energetic instructor teaching classes, series, and workshops at Rocksteady. Over the years, I have studied and taught Pilates, TRX, group fitness, and myofascial release. Through this process, I have developed a passion for the biomechanics of healing. My study and practice has shown me time and time again that movement and adaptability are huge components to healing and preventing modern illness and injury. I am committed to using my classes as a pathway to help students tap into their natural mobility and vitality and athleticism; at the same time help open their minds to more free and easeful ways of moving through life. I teach many levels of yoga and myofascial release here at Rocksteady to assist anyone in moving their body more sustainably
As a former Division 1 swimmer, yoga introduced me to the idea of balancing brain and body. Over the last 10 years, yoga has remained a way for me to put my body back together after long bouts of training for trail & road marathons and long missions in the Wasatch range. I can help you do the same.

Pilates & Yoga Instructor
I started studying Pilates over twenty years ago for my own practice. The idea of uniformed development and the mind body connection I gained from my practice, enhanced my performance as an athlete. I received my professional Pilates teaching certificate ten years ago at Streamline Pilates in Salt Lake. Since then, I have been teaching a variety of classes ranging from mat classes to equipment classes to privates and duets. In 2018, I finished my Level Two yoga training at Rocksteady Bodyworks. My passion is helping individuals find better movement patterns, strength, mobility, and a strong connection between mind and body.
Burn Reformer & Private Sessions
I am a Salt Lake City native, wife, and mother of two beautiful daughters, who are my greatest joy. I grew up very active in sports including competitive soccer, dance, cheer, track and field, trail running, skiing, and horseback riding. After graduating from the University of Utah where I studied Broadcast Journalism and Business I moved to Los Angeles and that’s where I fell in love with Reformer Pilates.
After moving back to SLC I searched for an intense/cardio style reformer workout and found nothing. So I created my own called the BURN Reformer Method. I found you can get a high intensity Reformer workout that will push your cardio endurance while minimizing impact on joints. I feel this is the best of both worlds. Our short cardio bursts push the boundaries of endurance while Reformer strength training creates long/lean muscles. Combining these two principles is a very effective way to create positive change in your body.
I have been a group fitness trainer/fanatic since 2009 and am also certified in circuit training, TRX, and Xtend Barre. I am an alumni Ambassador for Lululemon helping to bring more fitness awareness to our local community. I hope to inspire people to live a healthier, happier life through fitness and overall wellness by pushing them to do more than they thought possible…BURN, baby, BURN!
Burn Reformer Instructor
Living in the foothills of the Wasatch has always interested me from very early on for exploring all the mountains have to offer and continues to fuel my curiosity. Whether with family, friends, or solo, I feel the mountains provide many of the best experiences of my life. I have a healthy snow addiction and like to be on skis as much as possible in the winter months. In the summer I enjoy trail and road running, and standing on summits. I’ve always enjoyed being active and training to perform at a very high level. I started my athletic pursuits with skiing, hockey, and skateboarding at a young age, and since added running I enjoy competing in marathons and ultra marathons. I am also a Lululemon Alumni ambassador and love being a part of our local fitness community. My favorite thing about small group fitness/wellness are the relationships I’m blessed to make, and watching clients transform physically and mentally as they become part of our family. Hearing their feedback about how they feel, how they’ve recovered from injury, or how they’re performing at a higher level than they have previously in their sport of choice is incredibly rewarding.
My family is by far the most important thing in the world to me. I am extremely fortunate to have such an amazing wife and creator of the BURN Reformer Method, Stephanie, and two beautiful little girls. I wish to thank all of our clients/athletes/friends for their continued support and the relationships I’ve developed with you over the years. Our fitness/wellness community would never be what it is without all of you.
Burn Reformer Instructor
I was raised in Utah, Chile, and Argentina and studied Business & Spanish at the University of Belgrano in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I am deeply rooted in Argentina and it’s culture and always have the travel bug! Amongst my passion for travel I have always prioritized living a healthy and active lifestyle and love that I am able to pass that on to my incredible husband and beautiful son. At an early age I started playing soccer and my teammates would call me “speedy.” This is when I realized that what I loved most about soccer was running! I then decided to pursue this new passion and joined track, cross country teams, ran half and full marathons.
As my passion for exercise developed, I started to explore other ways to stay active that lead to my meeting Stephanie Willey, the creator of the BURN Reformer Method, who introduced me to this Pilates based workout. I found that Reformer workouts gave me strength in areas of my body that were lacking. It also helped me maintain my overall health, increased my coordination, balance, and core strength. All of which make me a stronger runner and give me confidence in other areas of my life. I love the way Reformer workouts make my body feel and the control and body awareness I’ve learned from practicing regularly. I was personally trained by Stephanie in the BURN Method and took the Balance Body Pilates certification course. I am also certified to teach Circuit & TRX. I am very driven and love being a mother, wife, & part of this incredible fitness/wellness team!
