I first discovered Pilates many years ago having been introduced to it through my horse riding instructor. It was clear from the very start how Pilates would help me improve my riding skills both in the dressage arena and show jumping. Overtime I have dipped in and out of my equestrian sports but I always remained passionate about Pilates.
In 2004 I qualified as a Sports and Remedial Massage Practitioner and have always advocated the combination of Pilates alongside my clients’ treatments. In 2013 my passion for Pilates grew and I decided to further my skills and trained with Body Control Pilates™ in matwork Pilates.
Since passing my matwork qualification I have gone on to further my skills and expertise by undertaking further CPD (Continued Professional Development) courses through Body Control. They include small equipment such as toning ball, circle, foam roller etc. Specialist populations including Bone health (Osteoporosis), older person, Pregnancy - pre & Post Natal. I'm have also recently completed the Level 4 Back4Good course, which enables me to specialise/focus on issues with low back pain.
I am also qualified to teach Pilates on the reformer and I am currently working towards a Comprehensive Studio Teacher qualification through Body Control PilatesTM.
My clients come to me with a myriad of different issues ranging from musculoskeletal injury, pain or dysfunction caused by any of life's stresses and from all walks of life. Some come just because they love Pilates. Many have been referred by their GPs, Osteopaths and other clinical practitioners recommending Pilates therapy to their patients as part of their rehabilitation.
I now run my own group matwork classes as well as 1:1 bespoke Pilates sessions alongside my Remedial Massage work. It’s so wonderful seeing how the combination of the two therapies can enrich and improve my clients lives.
