What prompted you to start The Pilates Garage?
I went to school for entrepreneurship and knew I wanted to start my own business one day. I have always been into health and fitness, and Pilates is something that I just fell in love with instantly. As I got older and ready to start a family, I realized owning a Pilates studio would be the perfect opportunity for me to have a healthy balance of home and work life.
What is one thing everyone should know about Pilates?
Everyone can do it.
How can you incorporate Pilates into a post-partum life?
Make it fun and involve the kiddos. When my kids were infants I would incorporate them into my workouts. Now at the toddler age I've found that they love to join me in my Pilates sessions on their own mat beside me. Even if you only have 15 minutes, make the time to get the family moving.  
What is your daily self-care routine?
I make an effort to eat as clean as possible and drink lots of water. I stay sane by enjoying the occasional pizza and wine. I also try to move at least 30 minutes every day. Some days that's a simple walk with the kids, others I crank the music and sweat it out.
What does juggling motherhood and owning a business look like to you?
Organized chaos! Some day I really have it all together, and others I can't seem to make enough time for everyone. The most important thing I've learned is that sometimes you just have to say "no".
