Pilates Matwork Teacher with the Pilates Foundation
Teaching Pilates Matwork classes, small group classes and one to ones in and around Windsor.
I began my career in the film industry as a post-production sound engineer, however, long hours in the studio took its toll and I struggled with chronic back pain for many years. When I found Pilates, it was nothing short of a life changing experience. Pilates got me moving again and I subsequently retrained as a Pilates teacher in 2012.
I have been teaching movement for 6 years and over this time have developed a strong interest in natural human movement. A keen eye for detail and a natural problem solver, I am fascinated by how our adaptations to modern day living impact our health and our bodies. I take a holistic approach to my teaching, with a strong emphasis on alignment and functional movement. I am passionate about empowering people to move more and about the importance of encouraging movement in our everyday lives.
I love how Pilates can both energise and rebalance the body and mind.
My favourite quote from Joseph Pilates is:
“Physical Fitness is the first requisite of happiness… a uniformly developed body with a sound mind, fully capable of naturally, easily and satisfactorily performing our many and varied daily tasks with spontaneous zest and pleasure.”
