My fascination with the human body led me to study Traditional Five Element Acupuncture for four years. After qualifying, I went into practice as an acupuncturist until the birth of my two children when I took a career break (break?) in order to give them my full attention.
I enjoy most forms of physical training, qualifying as a Gym Instructor in 2009. Over the years, I thought I’d tried it all! I’ve been running, swimming and biking. I’ve lifted weights. I’ve taken part in gymnastics, aerobics, yoga and step classes. I’ve been in leotards, stripey leg warmers, and sweat bands! I’ve slogged miles on my treadmill. I’ve pumped my body and hiked up and down mountains. Somehow I never got around to trying Pilates.
That all changed when I went to my first Pilates class! It was an immediate ‘lightbulb’ moment and I instantly fell in love with the method.
I trained with Pilates Training Solutions and I loved every minute of it. I gained my CYQ Level 3 Mat Pilates Diploma in 2012. The PTS Certificate in Teaching Studio Equipment soon followed and I’ve been teaching Pilates classes in Coventry and Solihull ever since.
I add to my qualifications all the time and am qualified to teach Pilates for Pregnancy and to teach classes using Pilates Small Equipment such as pilates small balls, bands, foam rollers, weights and rings. I also teach one to one Private Reformer/mat classes and two to one mat classes in my little home studio in Balsall Common.
Come along to a class. We’ll have some fun, work hard and hopefully I’ll pass on my love of Pilates to you.
