About Me

I am a Master Matwork and Comprehensive qualified Body Control Pilates teacher living in High Cross. I decided to train as a Pilates teacher after suffering from a bad back. My osteopath recommended Pilates as I had lost almost all movement in my spine. I was amazed at how Pilates helped to ease the pain and increase the movement in my spine.

It has helped me to ‘unlearn’ bad postural habits and understand how the human body works.

Pilates has helped me to recover from having my two children and rebuild my strength and stamina. I understand the physical demands on parents of young children and incorporate exercises to help with bending and lifting as well as encouraging restorative movement.

My experience of working with osteopaths and physiotherapists has influenced the way I teach. I keep my class sizes small to ensure I am able to give individual attention to each client in order to help them reach their full potential in the class.

My clients range from 18 to 89 years old, but age is just a number. As Joseph Pilates once said, ‘If your spine is inflexibly stiff at 30, you are old. If it is completely flexible at 60, you are young.’
