Pilates is for life and for everyone!

I discovered Pilates in 2006 when I started going to studio sessions at Thirdspace and then Tranquillity Pilates in London. After a few sessions I started to see changes in my body, back pain was disappearing, I was getting stronger and so I became addicted.

In these sessions I was getting both physical and mental improvement from my Pilates practice and was reaping the benefits for days after. It was in those sessions that I thought – I would love to do this and this is when my true Pilates journey began.

To become a true Pilates teacher is a massive commitment it includes 700 hours of teaching, observation and training, so in 2011 I decided to enrol in  my teacher training with Balanced Body under Tranquillity Pilates. Other the years I have studied various lineages and now focus on the classical work, and have been lucky to learn from Dana Santi who studied with Romana and Jay Grimes, who is now my key teacher and mentor.

I have always wanted to help other people realize whether it be through overcoming back pain, helping with anxiety/depression, helping women during and after pregnancy or working with sports professionals to enhance their current training regime. 

It’s always great watching clients become stronger, flexible, improve bad postural habits and fall in love with this method. I have seen over the years 

how amazing the human body is and the ability it has to heal itself when trained well.

I look forward to meeting and working with you on your journey.
