I love that I can keep learning new things all the time; that’s why I think Pilates is so fantastic! I believe everybody should experience it as it’s just such an intelligent way to exercise, learning about how the body works and experiencing interesting and functional movements. Teaching Pilates classes on the mat or the reformer gives me such huge job satisfaction! I truly believe you will walk out of class feeling stronger, more flexible, with better posture and switched on in every single muscle in your body! It’s an amazing method to learn and to teach and is constantly evolving.

She’s specialised in Pre & Postnatal, but teaches a great variety of clients, from people with hernias, osteoporosis, amputations to young sportspeople.
