I specialise in functional training, injury prevention and rehabilitation, and core function work using Pilates principles and methods.
I have always loved dance and choreography and Pilates is a natural extension of my love of movement. After many years of working as a paralegal and then the births of my children, I joined a Pilates class to help cope with anxiety. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to retrain (Thank you, Laura!). Two years later in 2010, I completed my training with Pilates Training Solutions and became a certified Level 3 Pilates Instructor.
Pilates helps me to cope with anxiety and remain calm while keeping my body strong and healthy from the inside out. The body is truly amazing and regular Pilates can improve movement, decrease or eliminate pain, and foster a calm state of mind. I also hold Certificates in Exercise (GP) Referral, Pre/Postnatal Pilates and Trigger Point Pilates and have a passion for working with older adults and rehab. I am CIMSPA and REPS registered.
