I am a level 3 qualified mat based Pilates instructor. I teach mixed-ability classes suitable for all and I also run a Pilates for climbers programme called "Pilates Rocks!"(see below). I'm also  available for Private Pilates coaching sessions.

My Pilates classes are purposely kept small and personal, this means that I can focus on delivering a more personal coaching approach, focusing on quality and attention-to-detail. I am focused on the individual needs of each participants; giving you the attention you deserve, helping you progress at your own pace, tailoring and adapting each exercise to suit your level of fitness, experience and personal goals.

I work with beginners to establish a strong foundation from the very start, right the way through to intermediate and advanced repertoire for those looking for a challenge. Visit the main Pilates page on this site to find out more about my classes & private sessions. Contact me for private sessions; I offer both 1:1 and 2:1 coaching. Make a difference to how you move and feel!
