My love and appreciation for movement started at a young age and I went on to study a 3 year Dance Diploma at UCT. After teaching for a while, I decided to broaden my fitness and anatomical knowledge by doing my Personal Fitness Trainer Diploma (ETA) at the Sports Science Institute. It was while working in the UK’s corporate health facilities that I was introduced to Pilates.
On returning to SA in 2004, I completed my full Pilates qualification with Equilibrium and have been teaching group and private sessions ever since. My clients vary greatly from professional athletes, to those needing rehabilitation. I have first-hand knowledge of Pilates through pregnancy and enjoy teaching a ‘seniors’ class to the more ‘mature’ clients.
I’ve continued my education through many courses, workshops and conferences by BASI, STOTT and other educators. My recently obtained qualification as a B3 practitioner, compliments my Pilates holistically with its myofascial and trigger point release techniques.
My varied background in movement along with the anatomical background gained through the years, allows me to better understand how precision of movement and correct implementation thereof, is the key to my clients achieving their goals.
