I graduated from Cardiff University in 2003 with a degree in Ancient History and Archaeology before deciding to train as a Primary School Teacher in my hometown of Swansea (the green green grass of home!)
I loved my training but found it all consuming and hard to switch off.
My mum suggested coming along with her to a new Pilates class that had just started and pretty quickly I was hooked! I found it was the one thing that helped me completely switch off and not continually be going through lesson plans in my head!
The combination of performing the slow controlled movements concentrating on alignment, breathing and centring brought me the peace, clarity of mind and relaxation that I so needed. I loved feeling relaxed yet invigorated at the end of the session and noticed that I felt stronger, more supple and confident in my own body.
I enjoyed it so much that I did my first qualification and became a Pilates teacher in 2006.
I then taught Pilates classes alongside full time teaching, before moving completely to Pilates after my boys were born.
Pilates has seen me through so many stages of life, including two pregnancies and has rebuilt my body and restored my mind.
I've recovered from a skiing injury, debilitating back pain and am stronger than I ever was before.
Pilates is truly a part of my life and I'd love to help it be part of yours too.
