Having been accident prone and broken multiple bones, including my right foot and leg twice, I was told I may not walk again. Following a handful of surgeries, my already poor posture suffered, and by the age of 30 I had a limp, a noticeable scoliosis and a frozen shoulder. I was stiff and in pain.
Pilates develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong posture, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind and elevates the spirit
It was at this point I stumbled across Pilates, the benefits of which have far exceeded my expectations. Progressively working to balance symmetry, strength, suppleness and sensitivity, I now have confidence in my ability to positively affect my own physical and mental health and to function free of chronic injury and pain.
Since qualifying with Body Control Pilates in 2012 I have trained in and practiced a number of other movement modalities, with a view to combining the best of East and West, of ancient wisdom and modern understanding. Outside of teaching, I enjoy spending time with my children, hill walking, swing dancing, horse riding and training with my partner Sam, www.sussextaichi.co.uk.
patience and persistence are vital qualities in the ultimate successful accomplishment of any worthwhile endeavor
A life-long and dedicated rider, I am currently doing an MSc. in Equine Science at Hartpury University. Having successfully completed the PGCert. in Equestrian Rehabilitation and Performance. My area of interest lies in researching and promoting the influence of rider fitness and wellbeing, not only for enhancing performance, but for improving horse and rider health, safety and welfare.
