WHO WE ARE

Certified by celebrity teacher Rael Isacowitz with continued training from master teacher Kathy Grant, Brook can share knowledge she has gained from the best.
The beauty of Pilates is that it has the power to transform people. Pilates can make over your body and change your mindset. I often hear clients say, “I don’t think I have it in me today. It’s been a rough week.” This is when I feel that I am most effective by integrating mind, body, and soul into every session. I tell my clients to bring it all in with them. I am here to be a consistent positive voice for even the toughest of days, to give you that last bit of strength right when you need it while respecting your body, your emotions, and your experiences. I recognize that doing your best is ever changing. I push you to your fullest potential while being respectful to your experience and kind to your vessel. That begins with positive affirmations, setting goals, and achieving them.
Massive change doesn’t happen overnight. It takes a series of small steps in the right direction that change your life. After careful assessment of your individual needs, I will craft a workout that is challenging, brings you a sense of calm focus, and guides you to push through your limitations. It will be as challenging as enjoyable. My diverse background in martial arts, dance, parkour and acrobatics has given me a breadth of movement vocabulary to push your workout to the next level. My wellness coaching gives you the skills to practice these tools outside the Pilates room and maximize their impact.
My goal at each session is to make you feel lighter, stronger, and happier than when you arrived. My clients often tell me that my voice stays with them throughout the week, long after our session, encouraging good posture, lightness on their feet, standing in their power and wearing a smile on their face. That is the greatest compliment to me. I am honored to be that voice.
