I've never been sporty. I’m not a dancer or gymnast, and aside from a brief stint of tennis playing I never really “got” the whole exercise thing. I discovered pilates in my early twenties and it changed my whole idea of what fitness meant. I finally realised that good quality movement is fundamental to a happy and healthy mind and body. It had such an affect on me that I wanted to know more and fully train in the discipline. The idea of spreading this message blossomed and I went on to complete my teacher training with Body Control Pilates in 2014, becoming a Level 3 Registered Exercise Professional.
During this time I have amassed a great deal of knowledge through official training and my own personal development. My interests now expands beyond pilates into related areas such as primal movements, plyometrics, HIIT, weight lifting and barre and is ever expanding… Elements of some of these are used in my sessions to compliment pilates movements.
Having been a working professional in London for five years I understand the challenges of looking after your body whilst leading a hectic, often stressful, lifestyle. I devised flex it stretch it to make pilates accessible, relevant and exciting for the modern working professional. Dynamic and challenging, my classes are designed for participants to enjoy movement for movement's sake and redress in-balances in the body as a result of a sedentary work hard / play hard lifestyle. I want people to feel empowered and ready to take on the world when they leave the class. Not only this, but also gain an education in how to bring good movement practices into their everyday lives.
