Please tell us a little about yourself, your business and your HCR journey:
My early career started as an aerobics instructor teaching over 25 classes a week as well as playing netball for over 10 years. However at the age of 28 I had a severe back injury which led to me need spinal surgery on my lower back. After the surgery I was advised by my consultant to take up Pilates.
Pilates had a profound effect on my back pain and mobility , so much so I decided to retrain and teach Pilates myself. I have now been teaching Pilates for 18 years. After doing my initial training in basic matwork classes with Modern Pilates in 2003, I have subsequently gone on to further training to specialise in back care, pre and post natal, older adult and neurological conditions including MS.I personally have successfully helped many clients improve mobility and performance, overcome long-term persistent problems, remove or decrease pain and have treated people coping with conditions ranging from a bad back to Multiple Sclerosis. I can help you not only with my extensive Pilates experience but other techniques such as ‘Bowen Therapy’ and ‘Be Activated’ and MSTR (scar tissue release)
I am now very excited to add Holistic Core Restore to my tool box, as after having 2 C sections (one emergency) which left me with significant scaring and weakness and also a diastasis I feel this is the missing link for me and a lot of my clients either coming back to exercise postnatal or after any abdominal surgery. I have a passion to empower women to take control of what can be a debilitating time post surgery.
