I first discovered Pilates at university while studying for a degree in Dance and from then on I was hooked, I had found a technique that improved my posture, core strength and stopped me from getting that niggling lower back pain caused by a curvature of my spine. Pilates now is a part of my weekly routine and one of the ways that I use to manage my back condition.
A weekly Pilates class helped me get through the working week when I was working in a desk job, both to relax my mind and body, it was then an easy decision to take the steps to becoming a qualified teacher. After a year of training with Body Control Pilates I set up my own classes in 2012 and I have been able to pass on the positive affects of Pilates through my weekly group matwork classes and private 1 to 1 lessons.
My classes focus on good movement, building a strong base, a good understanding of the Pilates principles and then progression to the more challenging exercises. I really enjoying using of the small equipment such as resistance bands, balls and weights in my classes and I hope you will to.
