I am a Stott Certified Pilates Matwork and Reformer instructor. I have been practising Pilates for 12 years and have been an instructor for six years In addition to individual lessons I teach group classes on Zoom, which I set up in 2020 as a result of the COVID restrictions. These classes were started for my existing clients who could no longer participate on a one-to-one basis and also for newcomers, as it became clear that the world had changed and this was the way forward.
I am married with a family of four boys – one is now at university, one in the sixth form and two have just started senior school. Until now they have been my top priority and the focus for my time and energy. I am now in a position to pursue my own interest in physical wellbeing. I was introduced to Pilates when I was 35 – prior to that I had done little regular exercise. Despite growing up in a very sporty household, I found it hard to find a form of exercise which suited me and I enjoyed. Pilates made me realise I needed to focus on my own physical improvement. Soon after starting, three things became apparent:-
It is an excellent form of exercise and it proved how unfit I was!
How much better I felt after a class both physically and mentally
The significant long term benefits to my physical state, less back pain, reduced hip ache, more flexibility in my shoulders and my body generally
After a period of time I decided that I wished to train as a Pilates instructor. I greatly enjoy teaching Pilates - it is an excellent form of exercise for everyone, as it is geared to each individual’s condition and ability. The wider benefits are how it improves both your mind and body.
