"Whole Body Health, Whole Body Commitment and Breath"
Joseph Pilates' three guiding principles
I have over 25 years experience from initially training as a Fitness Instructor.
My Pilates journey started in New Zealand where I lived and trained through Polestar Pilates - a highly recognised and well reputed organisation in the Pilates field.
Graduated initially as a Polestar Mat Instructor then on to become a Practitioner of Pilates Studio which allows me to competently teach Pilates at a much higher level.
I am experienced in teaching all age groups and sports individuals and have taught through clinics, gyms and Studios. I receive regular referrals from various practitioners to help work with those continuing their rehabilitation, an area I particularly have an interest in; although I enjoy working with everyone and meeting each individual’s needs.
Benefits of Pilates are tremendous. I enjoy sharing these with my clients who are constantly encouraged by the progress they make from attending Pilates regularly. As Joseph Pilates advocated: "In 10 sessions you'll feel the difference, in 20 sessions you'll see the difference, and in 30 sessions you'll have a whole new body".
I focus strongly on technique and give attentive instruction ensuring clients are working correctly and enjoying a pleasant movement experience. I assist clients to not only reach their own personal goals but to experience all the other great benefits Pilates has to offer; which can include boosting clients’ confidence in life, being able to achieve everyday tasks with much more ease, or excelling better in a sport.
I hold a diploma in Diet & Nutrition and have an interest in Mindfulness, conveying the significance of breathing correctly. I am reminded of Joseph Pilates' three guiding Principles of Pilates: “Whole Body Health, Whole Body Commitment and Breath.” It is important to have breath-emphasised exercises, which Pilates offers, and hugely makes a difference to our lives.
May I wish you great Wellness as you commence or continue your Pilates journey.
