I am a fully qualified Pilates teacher of almost 10 years, trained by the PILATESfoundation
by the renowned Pilates expert Suzanne Scott.
I set up The West Studio in 2005 in
Barnstaple. During my career I have updated my knowledge by completing a
specialised post graduate Pre & Post Natal Course. I have completed a
Performance Matrix course and attended many workshops on varied subjects
from scoliosis, hip pathologies to sequential spinal movement. More
recently I have completed a Hannah Somatics course which I am developing
Pilates has been invaluable to me and
has changed me both physically and mentally. I am more body aware,
calmer, stronger, more confident and more in tune with my body, and am
still learning new things about myself.
I enjoy applying the Pilates
principles to other exercise classes that I attend, when running, when
sat at my desk or in the swimming pool.
My teaching style has changed and
developed over time, by trusting my intuition and years of experience I
am able to give my clients the class they need.
I enjoy learning about movement and
seeing the changes in my clients both physically and mentality.
I am listed with the Guild of
Pregnancy & Postnatal Exercise Instructors -
Continual Professional Development
I regularly enhance my

This enables me to have up-to-date information on many aspects of
Pilates and related exercise topics.
