Recently completed the beginners L1 series with Deborah, she is “AWESOME” learnt so much from her. So disappointed that I wasn't able to continue to L2 but, I will definitely try other classes in my spare time.
Pilates Certifications: Body Control Pilates Matwork certification since 2006. Body Control Pilates is Europe’s largest professional Pilates organisation and is widely seen as a benchmark for safe and effective teaching of the highest quality.
Other Credentials: Membership of Body Control Pilates requires teachers to show continual professional development through ongoing training and education. I am qualified to teach pre- and post-natal Pilates as well as Pilates for the older person.
My Teaching Philosophy: I discovered Pilates 15 years ago while living in Australia and fell in love with the results of the method which were a feeling of graceful strength, improved posture, a sense of being in tune with my body and more mindful movement.
I specialise in Pilates Mat from beginner through to advanced level and enjoy being part of the transformation that clients experience; from feeling more energetic and toned to relieving aches and pains. I believe Pilates should be accessible to everyone, and can tailor exercises according to special requirements such as pre- and post-natal fitness, rehabilitation needs, as well as osteopenia and osteoporosis. I am also mom to two energetic daughters and credit Pilates with keeping me strong and healthy for the demands of everyday life.
My Happy Place: I have lived in the beach for eight years after moving here with my family, from England, but I’m still getting to know Toronto so my favourite thing is to grab a friend (or convince my kids they really do like walking) and go for an exploratory urban stroll or hike through the city’s many wonderful parks and ravines – ideally with a pause for great coffee somewhere along the way!
