“Trust me.”

Balance was born June of 2013🎉

Deborah MacKay let me rent her space a few days a week during the summer, and I was fortunate enough to have some very dedicated people follow me up the stairs to Debbie’s studio. As my vision and courage grew, I was fortunate enough to have MaryJayne Waddell (known around the studio as MJ) join me. Our classes have certainly become the foundation of Balance.

I know many of you come to my class for the message and the sweaty flow. And, I know that many of you love the classy confidence that MJ brings to her classes; I do too. It’s one of the many reasons I hired her (that and she’s just an amazing quadruple threat: actress, singer, dancer & yogi). What I love the most about Balance is that each teacher I hired brings an element of ‘balance’ to our space. I hired these women to surround myself with elements of what I need to be balanced. I encourage you to take their classes. here’s what I think you’ll find:

When you take MJ’s class you’ll feel extremely well taken care of. She balances me because she helps me to better understand the harmony between effort and ease.


When you take Kaitlyn’s class you’ll be led through a unique sequence of poses that will give you the opening needed to go further into your practice. She balances me because she makes me feel encouraged and courageous.


When you take Hong’s class you’ll feel pure joy and an abundance of energy. She balances me because I feel motivated and fearless when I am around her.


When you take Jeanne’s class you’ll know that you are being precisely and safely led. She balances me because she makes me feel unconditionally loved.


When you take Heidi’s class you’ll feel at home. She balances me because I feel complete and total acceptance when I am with her.


When you take Sarah’s class you’ll know you are in the presence of an artfully grounded master teacher. She balances me because I feel deeply connected to my soul when I’m with her. (I also love that she is as quirky as I am, which makes me feel perfectly okay!)


When you take Nicole’s class, you’ll be on a joyful journey. She balances me because I feel inspired and lighter when I am around her.


When you take Steph’s class, you’ll feel confidently guided. She balances me because I feel adventurous and totally honored when I am with her.


When you take Meghann’s class, you’ll feel explicitly taught. She balances me because I feel guided and nurtured when I am with her.


When you take Kate’s class, you’ll feel so connected. She balances me because I feel inspired and challenged when I am with her.


I am beyond grateful that you take my classes, continue to. I just wanted you to know why I have the staff that I have. What each of these women bring to my life and how, when you take all of our classes, you can’t help but be balanced. 😌
