I discovered Pilates in 2004 and soon recognised the benefits in my own posture. What started as rehabilitation soon turned into my weekly fix! My strong believe in the benefits, both physical and psychological, led me to train and qualify as a teacher with Body Control Pilates®. I’m a member of the Body Control Pilates Association and the Register for Exercise Professional and am qualified to teach all levels of Matwork and Equipment.
I believe health and fitness is directly linked to happiness and for me Pilates should form part of a healthy balanced lifestyle. Pilates strengthens, energises and relaxes. I believe it is not just beneficial for preventing back pain and rehabilitation from injury, but also if you simply want to balance your cardio regime with the toning and core strength Pilates provides.
For many years before discovering Pilates I experienced chronic back pain. There was no concrete diagnosis and I resorted to Pilates as a form of treatment – it worked and I've been promoting the benefits ever since. Pilates have kept my body strong and pain free so I can pursue an active outdoor lifestyle. I’ve trekked in the most wonderful and remote places around the world, and have reached the summit of Kilimanjaro and Everest Base Camp. Pilates played a key role in my preparations.
I like to incorporate my energy and love for Pilates into my classes and love seeing clients grow strong, look better and most importantly feel better about themselves. My classes are flowing and dynamic, I like to challenge you but have compassion for any limitations you may have.
I look forward to meeting you in one of my classes soon.
