I am a Pilates and yoga teacher with an extensive background in movement and dance.
I graduated from The Laban Centre for Movement & Dance, London, in 1997 and went on to perform nationally and internationally as an independent dance/theatre artist for more than 12 years. I performed with many leading companies, including The National Youth Dance Company, The Cholmonodeleys & The Featherstonehaughs and Protein Dance.
I completed Pilates matwork teacher training courses with both the Pilates Foundation (2004) and Body Control Pilates (2012) and I qualified as an accredited British Wheel of Yoga and Yoga Alliance teacher with YogaCampus in 2010. In 2012 I qualified as a Total Yoga Nidra (Yoga Sleep) teacher with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli and Nirlipta Tuli. In 2016 I graduated from SOAS University of London with an MA in Yoga and Meditation Traditions.
I sat on the Board of Directors of the Pilates Foundation (2010-12). The Pilates Foundation is the UK’s first Pilates Teachers’ Association and was set up in 1996 with an aim to establish and maintain quality and excellence in Pilates practice and teaching.
I have been lucky enough to teach Pilates and Yoga, both in this country and overseas, for numerous gyms, studios, dance companies and within the super-yacht industry.
I enjoy teaching at all levels of ability and have worked with many different groups of clients, including the elderly, those in physical rehabilitation, professional dancers, models and Oscar winning actors.
Most of all I love teaching in my local community in South East London.
