I was first introduced to Pilates by a ballet teacher I had at college when I was completing my degree in Dance Studies, but did not fully appreciate its potential to enhance people’s lives until it was suggested by my physiotherapist I took it back up again to manage an injury I received following a car accident. I was amazed at how Pilates changed my life; enabling me to stay pain free and active. Following completing my dance training I worked in education for 20 years but have returned to working with movement and love sharing my knowledge with others and seeing the benefits it brings them. When I’m not working I enjoy walking, spending time in my garden and practicing mindfulness.
Having always had a keen interest in fitness i began looking for more creative ways to keep active, i took up Pole Fitness and qualified as an Instructor in 2017. I fell in love with teaching and helping others to progress both physically and mentally, this encouraged me to further my knowledge of the mind to body connection. Yoga has helped me in more ways than i could have imagined and i’d like to share that. 200hr YTT yoga alliance certified
