“Running used to be my favourite thing in the world. But after not doing anything else for 3-4 years I started to pick up a few muscle imbalances and the injuries started to follow. 

Luckily one of my best friends was doing a pilates course and I got to be her guinea pig. It did not take me long to realise that I had no idea how to access my core, hip flexors  or even my glutes.

Learning how to better utilise my body and seeing how it impacted everyday life was fascinating and made me view my body differently. This became my motivation to start teaching pilates, to help others to also get more out of movement and get a deeper appreciation of what their bodies are capable of.”
