I am a passionate and dedicated Pilates Instructor specialising in helping those suffering from injury and in pain.
Becoming a Pilates Instructor was driven from the fact that I too suffered from pain after suffering an injury to my shoulder and back.
It took me 15years to find Pilates, once found,
Pilates healed my body, so made it my mission to share the power of Pilates with as many
people as I could.
I found my passion for Pilates on the road to trying heal my own body.
Having been on the other end of pain, I have personally experienced the power of Pilates and all it can achieve.
I suffered from rib subluxation, shoulder and upper back pain since I was 18 years of age. I was afraid to continue to do the things I loved just in case something happened, this became habit and an excuse. " I can't do that, my ribs might pop out"
In 2016, after 15years of physio and missing out on life, enough was enough, I wanted to start enjoying my life again without the fear of back or rib pain. I found a new osteopath who advised me that unless I started making the time to correct & strengthen my body, then my problem will keep re-occurring.
She recommended Pilates.
So, I found a local beginners group Pilates class, it was nerve racking at the start, but the instructor was great and so were my class mates.
After learning the fundamentals in the class, I was then able to add home practise into daily routine with private 1:1s and it changed my life.
At first my body resisted, but with patience & perseverance, change started to happen.
It was from this experience and change that occurred in my own body, that made me decide I wanted to become a Pilates Instructor.
"Change happens through movement and movement heals"
-Joseph Pilates -
Through my personal Pilates experience I am now pain free and back enjoying and living life and now have the absolute pleasure to help others in similar situations.
Pilates is a movement system that works your deep stabilising and postural muscles, training the mind to control the body. Using the Pilates method, continued in-depth training and personal research, I have had huge success in helping people find freedom of movement and most importantly, trusting their bodies again so they can get back to doing the things that they love to do.
My passion for Pilates and movement keeps on growing and today I am honoured to be a Peak Pilates Master Instructor, giving me the opportunity to train people to become Pilates Instructors here in the UK!
This passion keeping me learning and curious.
Every day is a learning day.
