Why choose me as your instructor? 

Hello and welcome to my website. Thank you for taking the time to have a look and I hope that you find a class that is suitable for your needs. 

 

As an instructor, I really enjoy working with individuals to help improve their health and wellbeing. Pilates really is a great way to make improvements to your physical fitness. For this, thanks must go to Joseph Pilates who, all those years ago, really thought about the purpose and benefit of each of the exercises, along with the core 'Pilates principles' that influence how the exercises are performed. If practiced correctly, Pilates can dramatically improve your overall body strength, improve mobility around joints and help to correct any postural issues.  

 

As an instructor, I really try to keep client-focused. It's important to me that my classes fit with what people really need. More now than ever our health and wellbeing is extremely important. In addition to my qualifications, I strive to keep abreast of current thinking via continual professional development and aim to deliver my knowledge in an enjoyable and effective way. 

 

I really welcome individuals who perhaps haven't exercised for a while to come to my classes and just give it a go. My classes aren't about being the fittest or most 'streamlined' person there. What's important, whatever your age, experience, or ability is just getting started and making progress over time. It's really rewarding to see improvements being made, friendships being forged and people having a better lifestyle as a result. 

I hope you will choose me as your Pilates instructor where relationships really count.

 

I also teach Nordic walking, which is a good complement to Pilates as it provides cardiovascular fitness at Haldon Forest Park, National Trust Killerton. Classes can be seen at www.nordicwalkingdevon.co.uk 

Hope to meet you soon.
