I came to the United States in 1982 to study for a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering. After receiving my degree, I worked for sixteen years as Physicist at Cornell University. Being completely absorbed in research and family, my fitness level was pathetic; I could hardly climb one flight of stairs. I started participating in fitness classes in the early mornings. I found that exercise empowers me, increases my confidence, lifts my spirit, and soothes my nerves while tightening my muscles and improving my posture. I really enjoyed it immensely and found myself designing my own style of choreography for fitness classes.

I am a certified instructor teaching fitness at Cornell University and Pilates classes at the Sunriseyoga Studio in Ithaca, NY. I have completed the comprehensive Balanced Body Pilates certification, which allows me to offer a well-rounded approach to teaching. I draw great pleasure from observing the progress and fitness improvement of my classes’ participants. Currently, I am devoting all my time to promoting fitness through my classes and fitness DVD production.
