I’ve been practicing Pilates for over eighteen years now, its the only thing that has stayed constant in my life, wherever I am and however I feel. I love to be active outside; hiking, cycling and swimming but I’ve always loved and continue to adore Pilates. I truly believe in this method for maintaining my strength, flexibility and mind body connection.
I wasn’t always into fitness, I spent most of my youth clubbing and traveling the world with a heavy rucksack. I waited on tables to fund my university education and love for travel. I then ‘settled down’ for a while and became an A level Sociology teacher and examiner and then came the pre-mid-life crisis! I traveled more searching for happiness and the elusive self, only to find it was always right here.

Currently, I’m very interested in myofascial lines. How the body is connected through fascia as well as the muscles and bones. The human body kind of blows my mind! I’m always learning; listening to podcasts, reading about anatomy and taking courses to enhance my understanding of the body to encourage clarity in my teaching.
I’m a natural teacher, I empathise with the frustration of learning something new and enjoy helping people focus, achieve and feel better. Furthermore, I do love to challenge people conceptions of what they can do, finding success through movement with a smile on their face!
I teach practically, assessing the body and then observing people’s movement patterns trying to work out how we can change their everyday habits to combat aches and pains and achieve better alignment. What’s most important is what you do for the other 23 hours of the day not just the hour we spend together. That’s why I chose the name Embody Pilates. Pilates instruction needs to be worked into your daily habits and then you will see dramatic improvements in how you move and feel.
Please follow me on social to keep up to date on new classes and advice on moving well throughout your life. Thanks for sticking around and reading to the end!
