Background & Qualifications

At 53, Mind & Body training has been at the very forefront of my education. I have had an interest in natural healing through herbs as well as mind-body sports since an early age. I have been studying & practicing meditative arts since 1984. Within this learnt about Yoga & Self Defence as a way of learning to empower myself & increase my confidence. Breath control exercise as a way of controlling stress & improving my learning of concentration as well improving my level of fitness.

I spent alot of time travelling to S.E Asia & emersed myself in an alternative culture to understand better an eastern spirituality. I have learnt to appreciate cultural differences & it has enhance my interest in diversity. Soul searching achieved !

Regards Pilates. Pilates has been part of my interest since I knew about it. I have been practicing Pilates since an early age. Loved it so much & with a real belief in its power to give back your body not only youth but improved quality of movement. I qualified to Level 3 in 2014 & been teaching ever since. Due to Covid-19 my Level 4 final module Lower Back Pain Exercise Specialist has been put on hold for completion & hope to have that finalised in November. From there I will begin my training in The Pilates Reformer & look to specialise in one to one tuition & small unit group classes (max 4-6 & 6-8)
