My Story…

I have always loved movement and have danced, practised yoga, tried Tai Chi... but working as a jewellery designer-maker had me sitting at a workbench for hours on end, which was beginning to impact on my body.  I was aching to unlock my muscles, open up my posture and liberate better flow of movement.   

I was fortunate to find a brilliant Body Control Pilates® teacher and eventually, inspired by the amazing increase in my well being, took a leap of faith, retrained and qualified as a Body Control Pilates Matwork teacher in 2010.

Year after year, Pilates continues to be an endless adventure into better movement skills and sheer joy of living in one’s body, and it is a privilege to be able to share these liberating discoveries with others.  Every class presents a fresh opportunity to free up better flow, greater precision and to work out best safe and effective exercise strategies for everyone as needed. Further professional workshops and courses keep me up to date with the latest developments in Pilates and related movement therapies, and help feed fresh inspiration, variety and depth into each class.
