I love pilates.
I was originally a weaver, I designed fabrics using the warp and the weft, it took patience and persistence (and a lot of looking at fine detail) and of course creativity. It may seem like a completely different path I started upon in 2001 when I took my first class, but it really isn't.
The warp is the Mat or Apparatus, the foundation (fibres that run vertically) and the body is like the weft (fibres that run horizontally) to create a design (Pilates). To create a beautifully designed fabric or to practise Controlgy (Pilates) you must look at the detail. You weave to create a strong, long-lasting beautiful piece of fabric. When I move, teach, paint or weave I find flow. I'm lost and found in it, this is happiness and I hope to inspire you too.
I am incredibly lucky to be able to teach my passion. I began my training in 2009 with Body Control Pilates. I am contemporary and classically comprehensively qualified. In 2018 I began a journey with PiStudios in Battersea, Holly Murray, my mentor and inspiration has guided me through the work taught to her by Romana and Bob Liekens.
" Self confidence, poise, consciousness of possessing the power to accomplish our desires, with renewed lively interest in life are the natural results of the practise of Contrology. Thus we achieve happiness truly born of the realisation of worthwhile work well done, with the gratification of enjoying the other pleasures flowing from successful accomplishment with its compensating measure of 'play' and resulting relaxation" ~ Joseph Pilates
