I am an Intermediate Body Control Pilates Instructor. I trained in London with Body Control Pilates® and qualified in July 2004. I am an Academy Founding Member of the Body Control Pilates Association, widely seen as a quality standard for Pilates teaching. All members of the Association adhere to a strict Code of Practice to ensure the highest teaching standards and professional ethics. Body Control Pilates teachers are also set apart by the way in which every client is assessed before starting classes and in the way that they teach exercises in a progressive way, gradually adding more complex moves, to build strength and flexibility.
As part of the membership it is necessary to complete at least 100 points annually towards my CPD (continued professional development) and I am fully insured.
Since qualifying 16 years ago, I have attended numerous courses and annual development weekends held by Body Control Pilates, and have studied the anatomy in greater detail looking at the roles of specific muscles and facia and their effects on our bodies.
Specialist areas include:
1. Pilates & Pregnancy
2. Pilates & Osteoporosis

5. Control and Balance
6. Pilates for the older person.
7. Pilates for men.

‘Our mission has been to bring the benefits of Pilates to everyone. To this end, we have created a method that is effective, safe and challenging: a method that is taught by teachers with unrivalled skills, knowledge and integrity.’
