I teach Pilates and yoga in the North East
Be kind to yourself, challenge yourself and be proud of your achievement.
I love all abdominal work but my all time favourite is The 100. I still remember the first time I did this exercise in class, I thought I'd never be able to do it! I love to see the look of achievement on my clients faces once they've done this, especially those who once thought they would never manage.
I'm a mum of 3 and work in education, I have always been sporty but as I got older i realised i needed to look after my mind as well as my body, and find exercise that I could continue into my old age! I started pilates at My Body Studios about 5 years ago and have been a student of Emma Newham.
I have recently certified with Pilates Union and I am loving teaching. I am also training to be a yoga teacher and hope to teach children about the benefits of yoga and pilates, hopefully they'll also have a love of exercise for life, like me.
Look after body, mind and spirit and you won't go far wrong.
Teaching pilates and yoga full time, somewhere hot and sunny, being the fittest and happiest I've ever been.
I have always loved being fit and active and have tried most sports, however after receiving several injuries through running I decided to give pilates a go. I immediately became hooked and just couldn't get enough of it. I then took up yoga and barre too. I loved the change to my body but also my mind and the way an hour of pilates could take away the stresses of the day. I decided as I was spending so much of my time at the studio, I might as well train to become a pilates teacher...best decision I've ever made!View instructor >
I believe that exercise should be enjoyable and Pilates was the obvious choice for me. I love the fact it works the muscles hard, whilst being low impact and gentle on the joints. I like my classes to be friendly and welcoming, with everyone working to their own level and ability - with gentle encouragement thrown in too. I like to have fun with my classes and encourage feedback from clients to keep me on my toes too!View instructor >
