I am a fully qualified and insured Body Control Pilates Teacher who teaches group mat classes and private sessions in and around the Cobham, Surrey area.
I came to Pilates through a stress fracture in my pelvis. A quite uncommon condition, it was due to a poor running technique, coupled with poor body awareness that left me with a hairline stress fracture which was very painful. After a very long healing process, I turned to Pilates as a form of exercise that made me start to strengthen my core muscles from within, and through this process haven't looked back since. I now feel stronger, more toned, more flexible and more body aware than before. As a mum of three, I realise how important it is to keep yourself fit & healthy. Pilates certainly achieves all of these and more.
As I began to become fascinated with Pilates, I thought that the nature progression would be to train as a Pilates Teacher and teach this wonderful exercise method to others. I qualified through Body Control Pilates, recognised as Europe’s largest professional Pilates organisation, completing a comprehensive training course in Body Control Pilates matwork (Level 3). I also attend a weekly Teachers Advanced Classical Mat at Cobham Pilates (Lisa Bradshaw) for my own development.
