I trained at Elmhurst Ballet School from the age of eleven and finished my training at London Studio Centre. I worked professionally as a dancer, choreographer and dance teacher for over twenty years and discovered Pilates through rehabilitation. The results were amazing. I have loved Pilates ever since!
I trained with Future Fit School of Pilates in London, and achieved a L3 VTCT Diploma.
I enjoy teaching different levels of Pilates classes from beginners to improvers, mixed abilities, intermediates, and advanced. I also teach Pilates to dance students privately and Vertical Fusion Pilates.
I take a contemporary approach to Pilates adapting the original ideas of its founder for the general public. Mat based Pilates provides a well- designed exercise program, where exercises are layered to suit different levels/needs, with a valuable role in addressing postural problems. When ideal alignment is attained muscles function efficiently and joints are optimally positioned and loaded. I seek ideal alignment in all exercises, encouraging clients to focus on their technique, using imagery and constantly reminding them of the fundamentals and principles of Pilates. By working slowly, precision and quality of movement are enhanced, breath is synced to the movement, therefore connecting mind and body and coordinating movements with flow. Stretches are incorporated in between some exercises maintaining smooth transitions between exercises. Each individual works towards their own personal goals at their own strengths and abilities. My aim is for everyone to stay focused but to also enjoy the class, and I do my best to keep everybody motivated with a smile on their faces.
