My Story

The physicality of working outdoors combined with an active lifestyle was starting to take its toll. I usually had stiff joints and regular back problems. I started doing Pilates as rehabilitation following a bodyboarding injury.

At first I just enjoyed the 'me' time, an hour exercising in a relaxing environment learning a new thing. After about 2 months doing one hour a week my body started to change.  Aches and pains became less, I felt so much stronger and could work harder for longer. 

I also stopped being quite so clumsy and I began to develop tone in places I did not know muscles existed. Then I started to look leaner, move better and began to feel really well.

During a session I said to my teacher "I would love to do this every day", she said "why don't you". Just over a year later I qualified through Body Control Pilates in London.

I really love teaching, working with lots of different people and making a positive difference every day.

 

  • I love Pilates, its great fun, it works, it's easy to learn and suitable for everyone.
