I am a movement specialist with an extensive knowledge of the body and mind and experience of teaching Pilates, Yoga and Movement for Actors. I love what I do. I am passionate about teaching people of all ages and abilities about movement and learning the ability to become aware and understand their body and mind through Pilates and Yoga and gaining the wonderful benefits it has on their well being.
I have a BA in Dance and did a one-year foundation course in Dance Movement Therapy which included the body mind practises of Alexandra Technique, Feldenkrais Method and Body Mind Centering.
In 2005, I did my Yoga Teacher Training with Sun Power Yoga accredited by The British Wheel of Yoga and Yoga Alliance and I did various yoga intensives with top International yoga teachers to inform my work and be inspired.
This then led me to study Pilates to gain a more anatomical and biomechanical understanding of the body especially of the deep postural muscles.
In 2009, I did my Pilates Teacher Training with Polestar Pilates UK and some workshops with Body Control Pilates, then later, I did the Polestar Pilates Studio equipment-training course.
At present, I teach Pilates and Yoga full time and work two days a week as an Associate Lecturer teaching body/ mind movement practices to student actors on the BA Acting for Film course at Chichester University.
Therefore, what I bring to you is an amalgamation of my movement experiences, learning and work through Dance, Yoga and Pilates.
