When diagnosed with Osteopenia (the onset of Osteoporosis) 5 years ago, I turned to Pilates to increase bone density, strengthen bones and improve balance and core strength, all conducive to preventing future falls and breaks. I discovered that the Pilates method offered so much more, it gave me a valuable insight into how my body works, improving and changing postural alignment habits, toning muscles and increasing flexibility. I have never looked back!
My passion for Pilates grew as I started to understand the methodology behind it. I then witnessed my father slowly give up, sitting in a chair day after day, in the end he lost the mobility of his legs, and through immobility developed a bed sore, resulting in septicaemia and his passing. If only he had kept moving!
This further fuelled my passion to get others moving, so much so, I trained to become a fully qualified Pilates Instructor, specialising in exercise for older adults. I gave up my job as a Customer Services Director in London and moved to Plymouth to focus solely on teaching.
