It was at this point I stumbled across Pilates and the benefits have far exceeded my expectations. Pilates has helped me develop an awareness and appreciation of my body's amazing capacity for positive transformation.
Progressively working to correct imbalances, build strength, suppleness and sensitivity I have developed confidence in my ability to move well, to positively affect my physical and mental wellbeing and to remain injury and pain free. I now feel more relaxed, more balanced, more comfortable in my own skin and more able to enjoy the demands of every day.
Since qualifying with Body Control Pilates I have explored, studied and practiced a number of other intelligent movement disciplines, with a view to combining the best of East and West, of ancient wisdom and modern understanding.
As a life-long horse rider I have a particular interest in working with riders and I am currently completing a Post. Grad. Cert. in Equestrian Rehabilitation and Performance at Hartpury University.

Having broken a number of bones including my right leg twice and following a handful of surgeries my already poor posture suffered. By the age of 30 I had a limp, a noticeable scoliosis and a frozen shoulder. I was stiff and in pain.
