I first started practising Pilates about nine years ago, after suffering one too many running injuries. I started to see the benefits after a very short period of time. Pilates helped me to recover rapidly from my injuries, by rebalancing my body and strengthening the areas of weakness. My overall strength and muscular endurance improved significantly. I now feel healthier, stronger and fitter than ever.
I became passionate about the Pilates method and decided to become an instructor to be able to teach others the benefits of Pilates.
I am a qualified level 3 instructor and have completed specialist diplomas in the following:
Pilates for back pain and other common orthopaedic conditions
Pilates with small equipment
Pre and post natal pilates
Pilates for neurological conditions
Pilates for cyclists and runners
Pilates for osteoporosis
I am registered and insured with the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPS):
