About

I am an experienced Educator (I have a Doctorate in Education) having worked in Higher Education for 16 years. As such, I have many years of experience in helping students (and staff), both in group settings and one-to-one to achieve their goals.

I have been practicing Pilates for 8 years and originally practiced it to help with anxiety, and later used it to manage lower back pain. I am passionate about how Pilates can help so many people but am particularly interested in using Pilates to support positive mental health. I am now a qualified Mat Pilates Instructor, having undertaken exams and practical training in Level 3 Anatomy and Physiology; Principles of Exercise, Fitness and Health; Supporting Clients who take part in exercise and practical assessments for planning and delivering Pilates classes. I also have undertaken a specialist course in Pilates for Older adults.

I have lived in Solihull since 1995 with Ken (who also practices Pilates) and we have two sons, Sam and Henry.

I aim to achieve an atmosphere of calm in my classes......this picture is taken outside St Margaret's Church in Olton- our Tuesday venue!

I pride myself on teaching excellence and therefore look to deliver classes that are both friendly and professional. I also take pride in learning from other professionals and continually updating my knowledge and practice around Pilates. I am passionate about developing relationships with my clients; I have spent many years practising and teaching hospitality and events (look out for the retreats!) and therefore appreciate the importance of customer care. Feedback is always welcome, and if you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
