At 54, 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 - I'm a true advocate for the Pilates Journey & can say that practicing Pilates regularly has staved off joint pain & muscular problems from over exercising. Up to & including helping me through symptoms of Menopause & helping me keep my body young & supple through my now 50's. I went through some high cortisol years where Cardio was simply too painful & Pilates was just the best, giving me a sense of relaxation, body awareness, limb lengthening & tone.
I have been teaching Pilates since 2014 mainly in Community Centres / Village Halls & have had various women only classes.
