Tory has always been interested in exercise and has taught numerous forms of movement since her teenage years ranging from aerobics and weightlifting to downhill skiing. Tory is certified through Power Pilates and is proud of her training. She truly believes that the certification is only the foundation of her knowledge and therefore travels to NY often for educational conferences. Many of the senior teachers at Power Pilates trained in the heart of the Pilates development. Tory is thrilled to bring that knowledge back to Blackbird and share it with the community.
AND THEN SHE FOUND BAPTISTE YOGA. “Truly a passion, a lifestyle and the part of myself I was missing”. In Tory’s Yoga classes you will be pushed to your edge with passion and compassion. Baptiste yoga is not a beachblanket yoga – it is physically and mentally challenging but the spiritual, mental and physical benefits you see in your everyday life off your mat will lead you to personal growth in your daily living. You can completely change yourself inside and out when you set your intention to do so. You shift and the community does. It is a phenomenal experience – on and off the mat.
Tory is a registered nurse, Baptiste Certified Yoga Instructor, Power Pilates Certified Instructor, and BB Barre Instructor . Tory teaches PRIVATES, semi privates and group classes.
Tory loves to cook, garden and ski.
“Most of all I love to teach others the foundation and core commitment they can make to themselves and others around them. Yoga is not only about the body but is about the mind. You don’t do Yoga you live it.”
Tory’s belief in Yoga comes from following the system and the experience of seeing the system transform not only her body and mind but those of her community.
