I began my journey as an Exercise to Music teacher and taught Body Balance group fitness classes.  Like many others I used to sweat it out at the gym, although I built muscle and tone I didn't look or feel as I thought I would. I slouched, had rounded shoulders, a stiff spine and an arched lower back. My fitness regime completely ignored the need to elongate the muscles and build strength from within. This accentuated my bad posture and, despite my efforts, my main goal back then of achieving a flat stomach was impossible.    

It was during my teacher training that I had a body break through and emotional epiphany. I truly never believed I would be able to make it as a practitioner, with my body as it was then. Yet against all odds, and with a lot of Pilates, fantastic support and encouragement, here I am.
The days of busting a gut in the gym are long behind me.

Pilates has changed the way I approach health and fitness. I continue to build on these newly found neural pathways. Regular practice makes me feel great, stand taller and helps me to maintain a healthy and lean strong body. With advanced qualifications with Polestar, I have deepened my holistic offer to incorporate Yoga teaching. I draw on expert knowledge, research and undertake ongoing specialist trainings where I can help to make a positive impact for a widening demographic. I am also proud to offer Cancer Care movement rehabilitation.

Are you considering Pilates or Yoga?
I'd advise committing to ten sessions with a highly qualified instructor.
One-to-one instruction can offer a unique tailored program, or try a small group class where the instructor can adjust you as you progress. 
I was hooked before I had completed my first ten sessions and I really felt a deep connection within, whilst also letting go of tension I never even realized I had.   

Whatever your motivation, whatever your age, it's amazing.

"It's an endless journey - once your body awakens and responds to it, it becomes a drug, craving Pilates and progression daily"
