My passion for movement began when I was in my teens. When I left school I attended ‘The Laban Centre for Movement and Dance’. This was my first introduction to Pilates in the late 70s. Since 1989 I have played a major role in the fitness industry teaching a variety of exercise classes and giving fitness advice to individuals to help them reach their goals.
Having had a successful career as a group fitness instructor for many years I decided to go back to my roots and train as a Pilates Instructor with Modern Pilates. I have Level Three qualification in the Teaching of Mat Pilates and have Level 4 Certificate in Exercise for Management of Low Back Pain. I am a Specialist in the Teaching of Health Related Exercise to seniors and once a week I teach Pilates to a group of people with Multiple Sclerosis.
I continually increase and update my knowledge in all areas of fitness so that I can share this knowledge with my clients. I do this by attending many different workshops and courses.
I have built a successful business teaching Pilates classes in Reigate and the surrounding area. After many years working in a variety of health clubs and leisure centres I took the decision to work for myself hiring local halls. This enables me to control and limit the class numbers. I can get to know clients and give individual attention. This means that people will learn to perform exercises correctly and effectively which means quicker and better results. I am always at hand for any after class advice. I liaise with individuals physio’s, osteopaths and other specialists. It also means that members can attend classes that suit their level of ability.
