I have always had a passion for fitness and wellness. From a young age I intuitively felt that physical fitness was an essential part of my life.  I loved going to the gym and joined every class going!

As an adult I discovered the benefits of Pilates physically for strength, flexibility and muscle balance as well as strategies for coping with symptoms of anxiety and work-related stress during a busy working life in the corporate world of London. 

It was here that I realised the benefits of accessing mental health support through physical activity.   I became very passionate about Pilates and wanted to learn more about this amazing exercise system invented by the incredible Joseph Pilates over 80 years ago!

My love of Pilates eventually led me to train as a Level 3 Pilates instructor.  It was a scary part of my life, one minute I was working in the corporate world the next minute I was studying something totally new to me as an adult.  I could never have imagined teaching a class as this was totally out of my comfort zone, but I took the leap of faith and would never look back. I truly feel so lucky to have a job that I am so passionate about.  I absolutely love teaching but I also love being a student and developing my own practice, I regularly attend courses and love the fact there is always so much more to learn. 

In 2018 I opened my first studio in London.  I built a great client base and was lucky to be able to continue online during the pandemic.

Moving to Braunton, North Devon had always been our plan and with the change in my career this made it possible, so we moved here in April 2022.  I feel incredibly privileged to be able to live in such a beautiful place and to have met so many lovely people.  I opened my Pilates Studio in the heart of Braunton last January and currently running 12 classes a week.

Since qualifying as a level 3 Mat Instructor, I have continued my training in Pilates and have qualified for Pre & Post Natal, Reformer and Small equipment.

If you are considering joining a Pilates class or have any questions about Pilates, I would love to hear from you!
