I have been teaching Pilates for 4 years, having previously practised for over 10 years after a horse riding accident. The benefits of practising Pilates has made a huge difference to my life as I have been able to improve my mobility and alleviate pain through exercise. I had suffered with frozen shoulder, neck and back pain for many years. I was so passionate about the Pilates method that I decided to train as an instructor during my time working as a therapeutic Horse Riding Instructor.
I had taught riding from the age of 18, had worked in Childcare for a number of years and also worked for RDA Association (The Riding for The Disabled). I taught children and adults with various disabilities, such as Autism, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, Cerebral Palsy and clients recovering from Strokes.
I now teach Pilates full time and self-employed (living the DREAM!) I get great job satisfaction from my work; it is so rewarding hearing how beneficial the exercises are for the clients as well as being relaxing. The classes I deliver are suitable for absolute beginners and the exercises are layered so everyone can participate. I enjoy the continual learning of Pilates and looking to develop my practice and study through regular training.
