I was first introduced to Pilates in 1995 when I was an undergraduate dance student at The Laban Centre for Movement & Dance, London.
In 2004, towards the end of my dance career, I completed the year long and intense Pilates matwork training at The Place. The course was certified by the Pilates Foundation, the first not-for-profit Pilates organization in the UK. The course was run by three highly experienced 'master' teachers; Hana Jones and Susanne Lahusen (who began their respective trainings under Gordon Thompson in 1982) and Sonia Noonan (who trained in Pilates with Alan Herdman in 1977). Not only were we taught most of the Classical Pilates matwork repetory, we also had a great variety of guest lecturers who exposed us to a variety of other body-work modalities, including Feldenkrais, Alexander Technique and yoga.
In 2012, to help keep my teaching fresh and expose myself to a different style, I did my matwork training all over again with Body Control Pilates. I particularly liked working with Nathan Gardner on this course.
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 private 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 post rehab, professional dancers, models, business leaders and Oscar winning actors.
I taught private in-person group matwork classes in South East London from 2004 up until the global Covid pandemic struck in March 2020.
Since the pandemic I have been teaching my group classes exclusively online and have recently began teaching face-to-face sessions again to private clients. You can find my current teaching schedule below.
