They are many. Flexibility, rejuvenation, relaxation, supple spine, increased bone density, better circulation, co-ordination, body awareness, improved immune function, more efficient breathing, general health and well-being, and many many more. The practice of Pilates has immense benefits for not just the body, but also for the mind, so that you enjoy a perfect healthy state of being.
I am qualified to teach all aspects of mat, small equipment and Reformer Pilates.
I belong to the Polestar Pilates school, the school was founded by Brent Anderson in 1992, a physiotherapist and orthopedic therapist, the school aims to train teachers in the traditional style as developed by Joseph Pilates but with a deeper understanding of how the body moves and rehabilitation. I continue to travel to London the nearest Polestar studio for on going training, deepening my knowledge and love for Pilates.
I love what I do and feel very lucky to be able to have the time to commit to my Pilates, and enjoy exploring all functional movement from various disciplines .
In my teaching I believe that by giving our selves time and space to our practice, we start to undo tension, in our body and in our breath, that have built up over time, through our busy life styles. Firstly by coming to our pilates practice we can begin to start this re- connection and undoing. We then move with awareness into the postures, its not about making nice shapes with the body, but discovering a way of moving to undo the tension in the body safely.
