A bit about your teacher
Teaching Pilates and positive movement habits gives me great satisfaction. This can come from helping someone recover from injury and regain mobility to showing clients how they can improve their flexibility and core strength. I'm very proud that I have clients from the age of 16 to 80 from all walks of life. Some simply want to be free of back pain so that they can do the things they love like gardening, playing with grandchildren or travel more. Others see Pilates as an essential part of their conditioning program for sports performance. Pilates can help everyone get more out of life.
I'm qualified to teach level 3 Pilates with Body Control Pilates, who are widely seen as the benchmark for safe and effective teaching of the highest quality, with teachers working in more than 40 countries. My continuous professional development (CPD) involves regularly attending training courses, workshops and conferences. In addition, I read extensively on Pilates, movement and related topics. I also still go to class myself.
I started practising Pilates myself in 2007. Years of poor movement habits and taking part in various sports had left me with a number of injuries that were stopping me from doing the things that I loved. I was inflexible, stiff, had poor core strength and at times a bad back. I hoped Pilates could help.
Pilates far exceeded my expectations. The new found body awareness I gained helped me with my posture in every day life, but the way that the exercises challenged me also enabled me to keep in great shape. It has allowed me to not only continue doing sport, but also to do things that I didn't think I'd ever do again.
In 2014, I came to a point in my life where I needed a new challenge and change in career. Becoming a Pilates teacher was the obvious choice.
I genuinely believe that Pilates is for absolutely everyone. It would be my pleasure to show you it's many benefits and help you achieve your individual goals.
