About myself

I qualified as a physiotherapist in 1993. For the past 25 years I have specialised in children’s musculoskeletal physiotherapy, and orthopaedics. As an adjunct to Physiotherapy I qualified as an aerobics instructor almost 20 years ago, and after injury prevented me leading aerobics classes I found Pilates, which has become my passion.

Pilates fits well with and encompasses many aspects of Physiotherapy. I loved it so much that I dedicated myself to this pursuit, and became an APPI accredited instructor. Performing and teaching Pilates is my passion. I love designing class programs and researching new moves and grades of progression. I aim to keep classes fun, enjoyable and relaxed. I find teaching extremely satisfying and feel so proud when my students improve their balance, strength and flexibility.

As a rehabilitation Pilates Instructor in Banbury, I use equipment in my classes to make the exercises more challenging or more comfortable. For some of the exercises we will use bands, soft balls, magic circles, oval pads, and gym balls to add changes, emphasise the work out, and assist or challenge the moves.



Why do a Rehabilitation Pilates class?

Rehabilitation Pilates is a form of dynamic lumbopelvic stabilisation retraining. It reconditions the body from the central core to prevent and reduce lower back pain.

Exercises are designed to promote core stability, flexibility, endurance, postural and body awareness and correct muscle imbalances. The Pilates method is essentially a mind-body centring technique, which emphasises the importance of beginning movement from a central core of stability. From this central core, the Pilates method works by changing the intensity of each exercise through the use of differing length levers and resistance, combined with appropriate breathing control and the essence of mind-body technique.

Injuries tend to be caused by imbalances in the body and habitual patterns of movement. When there is an imbalance or habitual movement pattern, there tends to be a weakness or maligned area. This then causes overcompensation or overdevelopment in another area to achieve a certain functional movement. Therefore it is critical to correct the maligned area and re-educate the body to prevent injury recurrence.
