About Me!

I am a fully qualified and experienced Pilates and fitness yoga instructor. I am trained in  Spinesafe, a specialist back care program, have a specialism in pelvic floor dysfunction with both Diamond Pilates and Adore Your Pelvic Floor training and have been teaching exercise for over 20 years with 20 years martial arts training prior to that. That’s a long period of time in which to gather knowledge and experience and I constantly strive to stay up to date with the latest research and training.

I am also qualified as an aqua instructor, and have taught virtually every fitness discipline from Step, Combat, Aerobics, Body Conditioning to Salsacise, Zumba, Legs Bums and Tums, Barre Pilates to Purestretch Biomechanics in addition to Pilates!

Mind and Body

Understanding how closely the mind and body work together, I decided to qualify in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, part of the last cohort trained by David Newton, an international hypnotherapist. This enables me to improve clients wellbeing as well as their bodies! It also helps me to help those with problems of sleeplessness, low mood and anxiety as well as phobias.

What my Clients say!

I like to make my exercise classes effective but fun, and am passionate about the benefits of movement and mind wellbeing. Clients describe me as friendly, approachable knowledgeable, experienced and welcoming. I have also worked as a lecturer and assessor for a training company, helping instructors qualify in Pilates.

Working with diverse medical, physical and mental conditions.

I have worked in various locations including surgeries, hospitals, colleges schools and corporate organisations. I have worked with a wide variety of age groups and mental and physical conditions and even received an award for working with people who struggle with exercise. I understand many of the barriers clients face, such as confidence, childcare, age, healthcare issues etc. I always have a plan but teach to the people in front of me, knowing what is needed. I teach holistically that is with regard to the whole of the body, and like to get to know my clients as this informs me better with their needs.

In addition to online and in-person or F2F classes, I offer private consultations and assessments, both on ZOOM or in person.

You have nothing to lose and everything to gain! Why not join me in a sample class. I look forward to working with you.
