MY STORY

I was first introduced to Pilates as a tool for rehabilitation following a back injury, but soon discovered that Pilates did more for my body than I could have imagined: it not only restored balance, but facilitated a leaner, stronger, injury-free and more functional body.  Inspired by the life-changing results I saw in my own body I decided to pursue a career as a Pilates teacher to share the transformative power of the method.


I am comprehensively certified on all pieces of Pilates apparatus (Mat, Reformer, Cadillac, Chairs & Barrels) with STOTT PILATES; the contemporary approach to the original Pilates method and recognized around the world for its quality and training excellence. I am also pre and postnatal trained and offer sessions targeted at strengthening pelvic floor and deep postural muscles to support the changes of the body during and after pregnancy.

I am forever committed to continuing my education in movement and anatomy. My passion for Pilates means that I am continuously learning and deepening my knowledge of the method. As a result I now am completing a second comprehensive certification. Meeting the entry requirements and following a sucessful assessment; I have been accepted and enrolled as an apprentice with ROMANA'S PILATES INTERNATIONAL.   Held at Kinetic Pilates, this is the only Romana's Pilates certification programme currently available in the UK.

Romana’s Pilates is modelled on the original teachings of Joseph and Clara Pilates. Following the lineage of Romana Kryzanowska, Joe's protege, this programme is one of the most respected classical pilates teacher training certifications in the world requiring  a minimum of 700hrs of apprenticeship.Teachers are taught using techniques and knowledge that is as close to the original Pilates teaching method. There is no other source that is as closely aligned to the original teachings anywhere in the world. Romana’s teachers are highly respected in the industry and offer the highest level of Pilates instruction.

I have a fully equipped private home studio, Panther Pilates, based in Stoke Newington, North East London. I offer private and semi-private (duets) sessions.

I truly believe in the transformative power of authentic Pilates; and want to share the number of applications and benefits it can bring to people’s lives. Whether you are recovering from injury, looking to realign and improve your posture, wanting to support your every day activities or seeking a fitness challenge and enhance your performance, get in touch!
