My relationship with Pilates started in 2002 when I became a client of Reform Studios in Port Elizabeth. Coming from a corporate background I had no inclination of entering the Health and Fitness industry but my love for Pilates was instant and in 2003 I started training as an Instructor.
In 2004 I achieved my certification through STOTT Pilates, also completing their ISP Course which enables me to work in a rehabilitative capacity as well as with pre- and post-pregnancy women. I have also completed the STOTT Zenga course, which focuses on myofascial release work. My own back injury has given me an invaluable insight and understanding into body mechanics and the importance of neuro-muscular rebalancing.
I’m very passionate about rehabilitation and the body’s ability to heal itself and watching clients transform, through this amazing technique of Pilates, is one of the greatest rewards I have experienced, not just professionally but also personally.
My teaching style is focused and technical and as much as I love the slow steady pace of rehabilitation work, I also love the complexity and faster pace of advanced clients. I continue my Pilates Education through STOTT Pilates, under the expertise of Lisa Palmer.
