My experience starts with a sports and dance back ground creating an interest in movement therapy and the benefits both physically and mentally. In 2012 I qualified as a level 3 Body Control matwork Pilates teacher. Body Control is one of the most prestigious training providers in the UK, with a very high teaching standard of sign offs to ensure sufficient knowledge of the human body and safety and efficacy of the Pilates movement repertoire. I continued with CPD, attending small equipment and pre- and post-natal courses. I was then keen to explore the mind body connection, as I noticed that injury healing time and insidious pain appeared to have an association with stress levels and mental health. In 2014 I travelled to India to qualify as a vinyasa yoga teacher. We trained intensively for 6 weeks with a daily yoga movement practice, breathwork, meditation and spiritual philosophy. Meditation, breathing/breathing mechanics has now become an integral aspect of my work.
After seeing clients with a multitude of musculoskeletal injuries, I wanted to be able to offer more in my ability to help aid their pain and healing. I trained as a level 5 sport and remedial soft tissue therapist at the LSSM. There are only a few training providers in the uk that offer a level 5 qualification, this level requires an in-depth knowledge of anatomy and the use of a wide range of soft tissue techniques to treat musculoskeletal conditions.
Over the following few years, I continued with CPD; attending a kinesio taping course, the world-renowned Tomas Myers anatomy trains fascial courses plus, the reformer and cadillac Pilates studio equipment teaching qualifications. I am now currently studying part-time to be an Osteopath at the London School of Osteopathy and oh what a journey! The human body is fascinating!
Over the past 10 years I have worked in London as a freelance practitioner and as a corporate matwork Pilates and yoga teacher. Worked as a rehab Pilates teacher and soft tissue therapist for both a chiropractic clinic in the City and a physio reformer studio in Balham. My work has also taken me to Ibiza as a freelancer in luxury villas plus teaching and treating for high end fitness retreats and also to the French Alps working for high end chalets companies.
I now live in Cornwall where I grew up, working from my home in Nancledra near St.Ives and available for home visits.
