Here’s how I can help…
I know, firsthand, the many benefits Pilates will give YOU. It is a mindful intelligent exercise method that will not only make you feel amazing itself, but will prevent you becoming injured undertaking other exercise making everything you do much more enjoyable. It keeps you free of pain and imbalances, will strengthen your body from the inside out and your mind through and through. It absorbs you, giving you a break from everyday worries and stresses. Teaches you will power, to be disciplined, and to firstly take care of yourself means you can then take care of others. YOU are important. YOU must take care not to allow challenges in life to detract from a little bit of time and focus for YOU.
My story is a success story which I hope can inspire others.
I am not only a pilates teacher, I am Mum to two beautiful girls, both clever, and thoughtful, talented and inspiring as both have complex health and educational needs. They live with a genetic disorder called Hypermobility Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (HEDS), as well as Autism and ADHD. The unconditional love and dedication I have for my children initially drove me to become a pilates teacher. The journey I have been on has been empowering as well as, at times, emotional and challenging and physically demanding. It has helped me realise how fortunate we are, and that none of these things are what define us, or make us any ‘different’ really to anyone else, our basic needs as humans are all the same, and exercise, for starters, is something we all have in common.
I have no doubt the mental and physical strength I have, thanks to pilates, has been essential throughout my life.
Being Mum is my most important job in the world, being a pilates teacher gives me independence and focus, away from everyday worries and stresses, and isn’t that vitally important for us all? It enables me to work around the many appointments and family commitments we have, and in helping others I get the most amazing feeling, its been the most rewarding wonderful job I could ask for.
Pilates is a skill, a discipline, and an integral part of my life. Much more than just exercise it works your body in the way in which is was designed, irons out imbalances and corrects dysfunction. I need my body and mind to be strong, and Pilates has helped me come out fighting and stronger than ever.
Pilates for us is a success story. It is a way of life, and I strongly recommend everyone needs that physical and mental strength, whatever your story is.
Pilates has been life changing for my family. My Mentor and master teacher trainer, Miranda Bass I have to thank, for her wonderful training and inspiration has meant my passion for my job never ends and my body is stronger than ever despite the older I get.
I will give you the knowledge and teach you the skills to walk away from class and use every single day, for the good of your mind and your body.
Pilates is not only about the here and now of the session you go to, its about learning how to use your body functionally, with flexibility and core control. Skills you need when gardening, walking, horse riding, running, cycling, sailing, para gliding, swimming, athletics, bowls clubs, skiing. the list goes on, and on.
You will need to bring along some will power though, as often my clients are much more capable than they think they are, and I will push you to explore your limits, and empower you to move with confidence and remove boundaries to movement.
You will be amazed how capable you really are.
My classes are small, hands on, with a long term goal to TEACH and give you the knowledge to EMPOWER you to care for your own body with confidence.
I am experienced in movement, Pilates is my passion.
I walk the room and make hands on tactile corrections throughout the class, so YOU get the most from the class.
I love my job, and passionately want everyone to feel good and achieve the best results
I love working with my clients and want you to walk out feel 2 inches taller

I offer a range of group matwork classes which are fun, challenging and achieve results, and I run these across West Sussex: Horsham, Billingshurst, Slinfold, Mannings Heath.
Just take a look at my timetable.
I always recommend new starters book an initial consultation or attend a beginner course in my beautiful Billingshurst Studio. This is particularly important if you are experiencing pain, recovering from surgery, have an injury or have any other medical history which may require exercise prescription. My classes are all bespoke and I deliver classes according to what YOU need.
For a particular interest, I also offer Basic Anatomy, Advanced Pilates, Running, Equestrian and Golf workshops throughout the year.
Or, if you prefer a smaller setting you can book private sessions as well as small groups of 2 to 4 in my bespoke studio where I can train you on the apparatus, including the reformer, tower, ladder barrel and wunda chair plus many other pieces of small equipment. Alternatively I can come to your home.
