I first experienced the benefits of Pilates when recovering from an intervertebral disc injury. Pilates helped me to address muscle imbalances and postural habits and taught me good back care. 17 years on and I am still finding more of what I can be.
I am now a qualified Matwork Pilates teacher based in Bristol. Under the supervision of master teacher Suzanne Scott, I completed a one-year comprehensive training course at the Scott Studio in Somerset in 2013/14. I teach Joseph Pilates’ original mat repertoire as well as ‘evolved’ Pilates exercises reflecting latest bio-mechanic research.
Influenced by my background in dance and somatic movement I apply the Pilates method creatively. I offer an engaging variety of exercises, teach in a flowing manner and promote deep sensory awareness. With clear and detailed instructions I encourage you to discover your body anew and help you move with more ease and efficiency in sport and everyday life. I use a client-centred approach facilitating your personal Pilates journey.
Since September 2018 I am a member of a peer group studying Thomas W. Myers' material on Anatomy Trains. We sat up the group to deepen our understanding of the connective tissue network and to explore the concept of myofascial meridians in practice.
