Hi! I'm all about keeping your pilates experience simple, balanced and fun.
I create pilates classes & resources that are specifically designed to help you:
- build strength
- reduce stress
- feel great
Whether that's on the mat, on the reformer or through my growing community who have access to bespoke resources and workouts, my job is to help you fall in love with exercise in a way that best fits your needs and that best supports your lifestyle and your wellness goals, so as you feel balanced on and off the mat.
I am passionate about teaching and helping you understand the pilates method from the ground up because the basics are where the magic is. I believe children and young people have the most to gain from starting a pilates practice early and I work privately with a number of young people in the performing arts, helping them improve core strength, posture and good movement patterns.
With 1 in 4 of us in Scotland set to experience a mental health issue, I am a Scottish Mental Health First Aider and have also completed a foundational course in Pilates for Better Mental Health with Body Control Pilates. Please visit my Mental Health Support Toolkit if you are looking for any extra support with your wellbeing.
Thank you for visiting my site, get in touch with any questions and see you for pilates soon!
