I have been practising and teaching Pilates for over 12 years. Prior to that I was ....and still am, a dance teacher. I have over 20 years of observing the body and teaching the body to move, looking at its form and getting the best out of it, whether that be through Pilates or dance.
I hold a fully comprehensive Classical Pilates teaching certificate, with Authentic Pilates Education, under Gaby Noble at award winning Exhale Pilates.
I teach 1:1s, Matwork, Reformer, Cadillac , Barrels and Chairs and Barre - from the very beginner to the advanced.
I regularly attend courses to update my skills and deepen my teaching practice.
I like to teach a creative and effective pilates class, focusing on the needs of the individual, where my knowledge and love of movement and dance underpins each class but always with a smile.
No other level of training can teach you how to understand the work and how that translates on to the many bodies you see week in and week out.
Pilates can be gentle and it can also be tough, it works to strengthen and lengthen the body, to stabilise and create uniformity in posture and alignment. Be prepared to start slowly, to find the work correctly in your body...but it doesn't stop there. It is a journey between you, your body and your mind.
I am enjoying seeing the work transform my clients bodies and mine! In my experience, no other form of exercise results in the strength and stability that the body can achieve through pilates. Joseph Pilates created a system of exercise to challenge the body and the mind, to be taught on an amazing array of equipment and on the mat. Clients start to see and feel the results and develop the same faith and passion in the method as their instructors.
We dont take ourselves too seriously in class ........but be prepared to work hard!!
"You can say what Pilates is in three words. Stretch with Strength and Control. And the control part is the most important because that makes you use your mind"
