I have always been super active and was a competitive dancer for many years. I did unfortunately have many injuries during my time as a dancer and pilates really helped me in my recovery. I injured my foot a fair few times and it really set me back.
I couldn’t train or compete and I felt like I was falling behind. There were a few times where I injured my foot before a big competition which, meant I couldn’t compete. It felt like all of the hard work I had put in was for nothing and it was extremely frustrating. My physiotherapist recommended that I start up pilates to progress my recovery and prevent re-injury.
I instantly fell in love during my first class. I loved how versatile and unique the exercises were and most of all, how effective it was! I didn’t have any more recurrences of my injury and I felt stronger and more flexible than ever.
This experience set me on my path into working as a pilates teacher and studying physiotherapy. I am motivated to help people become healthier versions of themselves and live an active and enjoyable lifestyle.
I really believe that Pilates is one of the best forms of exercise as it has so many benefits. It really caters for everyone’s goals, and that’s what I love most about it.The most amazing thing about being a pilates instructor is being able to share my love of pilates with my clients. I hope that everyone that participates in my classes finds them energising and fun. I really strive to create an uplifting environment for everyone to safely exercise.
When I am not doing pilates you can usually find me at university, hiking, horse riding, watching Harry Potter, or anywhere where there is salt water and a bit of sun.
