I have more than 17 years experience in the Leisure industry, beginning as a qualified lifeguard/ swimming instructor and advancing to Swimming Pool Manager.

I became involved with Pilates about 7 years ago, attending classes taught by Julie with an aim to strengthen muscles affected by a car accident I had as a teenager. Through Pilates I have been able to address muscular imbalance and gain body awareness, and incorporate these principles into my everyday life. Knowing I had benefited by regular participation and practice, it was a natural decision to pursue qualification.

I completed my training in July 2007 to gain my OCR/NVQ Level 2 Pilates Mat Work Instructor, and joined the team at Pilates East Anglia. I have since attended workshops for Pelvic floor and Pelvic stability. I joined Orchid Fitness in 2016. Nikki and I have been teaching and working together for over 25 years.They first met when working at Stradbroke Pool and both have a wealth of experience in the leisure industry. I have built a strong reputation for providing high quality Pilates classes . I have experience teaching all ability levels .

My biggest reward through teaching is the feedback from my class participants; it’s nice to know I am part of the ‘individual’ journey to master a new skill.

Qualifications – BSc Biology, RSA Exercise to Music/YMCA level 2 Aerobic Instructor, Amateur Swimming Association Qualified Instructor, Aquaerobics instructor, ISRM certificate in management.
