I am a professional contemporary dancer, choreographer and Pilates instructor. The demanding physicality and artistry required for a long and successful career as a performer turned me to Pilates as a mainstay for injury prevention and rehabilitation and improving movement strength and quality. Continuing my work as an artist,
I have also been teaching for over a decade, using my knowledge from both worlds to tailor Pilates classes to dancers and individual clients seeking improvement in their alignment, flexibility and strength.
This interpretation of classic Pilates principles and techniques offers additional benefits to training and movement understanding that I have shared for many years in group classes and 1:1 sessions. You absolutely do not need to be a dancer to benefit from these classes.
I design programs specific to your goals and current levels to help you progress along your fitness journey. So whether you are just starting out, have injury issues, or are looking for extra challenges in your movement, I am here to educate on best practice, and ensure your body is as efficient, mobile and strong as possible.

Alignment & Activation
Are group classes too quick in pace and not personalised enough for your unique needs? This session is suitable for beginners who would like to get introduced to the Pilates method and techniques in a 1:1 setting. Set at a slower, more controlled pace, we go through the foundations of different muscle groups and identify key issues and remedies for common structural misalignments so you can find comfort and confidence in Pilates technique. This session is also ideal for injury rehabilitation and/or pain relief due to misalignment and incorrect muscular activation. If you have a specific injury you would like assistance rehabilitating, this offering is right for you.

This session focuses on flexibility and balance as key aspects to progress in any movement endeavour. If you would like sessions dedicated to your individual flexibility goals as well as securing your balance through proper activation and alignment, this option will design progressions and releases to help you achieve those goals. As a professional dancer, I merge release techniques for flexibility with Pilates knowledge to create dynamic and personalised sequences to lengthen and strengthen your muscles.
