YOUR TEACHING STYLE: Creative & thoughtful
MUSIC/SONGS ON ROTATION IN YOUR CLASS: Classic favorites from the 50s, 60s and 70s, pop hits of the 80’s and 90’s and a few current radio rotation— but mostly, Candy is always living la vida 90s.
FAVORITE BARRE MOVE: At the Barre good old point, tap, lift, pulse always does the trick and exercises with hand weights or props are my favorite. Chair pose and I are frienemies, one day we hate each other the next day we are besties again.
FAVORITE PHILLY RESTAURANT: It changes with my mood and dietary restrictions/preferences but when I need a good pasta, La Locanda Del Ghittone in Olde City is the place to be.
TWO THINGS STILL LEFT ON YOUR BUCKET LIST: I’m doing the thing on my bucket list! I always wanted to become a fitness person and be the strong healthy warrior woman I knew was in there. I am living my dream because if cauliflower can become pizza, then I can become an empowering fitness instructor. Still on the list is being a published author and one day I will achieve that goal as well.
IF YOU HAD ONE EXTRA HOUR OF FREE TIME A DAY, HOW WOULD YOU USE IT: I would probably spend it sleeping or realistically doing household chores, like laundry.
