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.”

Somewhere peaceful with lots of wildlife and great walks. Maybe in the mountains or near the sea? Most probably in a tent.
