I have been passionate about Pilates since I joined my first class almost 20 years ago and discovered how effective regular practice was in helping me to recover from a whip lash injury. I am looking forward to welcoming clients to my classes and encouraging people of all ages and abilities to move with greater ease and efficiency. I firmly believe Pilates can improve our quality of life by reducing stress, relieving pain and encouraging greater mobility. I particularly enjoy helping clients to know their own movement patterns as I believe that knowing how we move now is fundamental to our understanding of how we can move better in the future.
Health and well-being have always been an important part of my life and in the early 1990s I qualified as an instructor in resistance training and exercise in water whilst living in Adelaide, Australia. This awakened my love for teaching and on my return to the UK I qualified as a teacher of English Literature with PE as my second subject. Whilst I have enjoyed teaching in a number of local high schools, health and well-being have always been a huge interest of mine. It was this passion which led me to train as a Balanced Body Pilates Instructor.
When not practising Pilates, learning about anatomy or teaching, I love spending time with my family, reading, camping and climbing.
