My Pilates Journey began when I was recovering from a very serious Multiple Sclerosis Attack which left me with paralysis on both sides of my body, I had to re-learn all movement and teach my body to be able to walk again. I used Pilates as part of my rehabilitation alongside physiotherapy.

I was amazed just how much the Pilates was helping my recovery, my muscle control improved, my balance and co-ordination got better. I became stronger and my general wellbeing improved. Pilates helped me so much that I fell in love with this type of movement.

Before MS I was very keen runner, but unfortunately due to nerve damage I am no longer able to run. This left a huge void in my life. However I have happily filled this void with Pilates.
Once I became better I decided to retrain, and became a Pilates instructor.

I gained my  qualification with Physicalmind. I have attended and completed courses “Pilates for Multiple sclerosis” as well as “Exercise for Neurological conditions”.
I am currently studying Anatomy and Physiology .

I am very passionate about helping others that have had their mobility effected by illness. I understand the frustration, pain, and upset of your body not working as it should but know just how important it is to keep active in these circumstances. I offer one to one sessions for people effected by neurological conditions / mobility issues.

For Group sessions I like to challenge my clients, pushing the limits and making them see just want our bodies can achieve when you challenge it. Of course I offer modifications when necessary.

I hope to motivate and inspire.
