I have always loved to exercise and I enjoy many different sports, but when I discovered the Pilates Method it was a true revelation. Pilates quickly became my passion for how it improves my shape and posture. Shortly after beginning Pilates as a client in 2002 I began my training as an instructor so that I could share its health benefits with others. I have been teaching the Pilates Method as a Qualified Instructor since 2005.

My Personal Philosophy
My personal philosophy as a Pilates instructor is focused on each individual’s unique circumstances, and adapting my methods to address the needs of each person. I take pride in listening to each of my clients and becoming deeply familiar with their conditions, habits and goals, and tailoring solutions to help them achieve outcomes they will be satisfied with. Throughout my time as a Qualified Pilates Instructor, I have owned my own studio and worked independently so that I can have a direct 1-to-1 connection with each person. Even in group classes, I see it as a personal duty to attend to the needs of each individual and monitor their progress for as long as they are in my care.
