"Anatomical, creative, caring"
Studio Owner & Director
My passion is keeping bodies healthy and as active, mobile and pain free as possible - no matter what the starting point of a client.
My classes focus on strengthening appropriate muscles, releasing areas of restriction & alignment of the body from head to toe as everything in our being is linked. By focusing on what each individual body needs, facilitated by a deep understanding of the human structure, I love seeing the way a client's body reshapes, moves with freedom as it recodes itself, no matter what the clients age.
After studying for a BA in Laban Dance at the University of London, I trained & qualified in Pilates with Body Control Pilates in 2000.
As the years progressed my qualifications included the Pilates matwork from beginners through to advanced level & the large studio equipment (reformer, cadillac etc.). I also have specialist qualifications in low back pain (Specialist Low Back Pain Practitioner Level 4), osteoporosis and the BeST Programme which is an evidence based, cognitive behavioural approach to manage low back pain-and includes chronic pain for anywhere in the body.
For many years I was a supervising teacher for Body Control Pilates & enjoyed nurturing numerous students on their Pilates journey, many of which joined the studio teaching once qualified.
With a huge interest in neuroscience and how the mind/body, body/mind interact, I am also a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist/Psychotherapist and have certification in teaching Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT Oxford University).
