A Bit About Me

I have been a fitness professional for over 10 years.
I was inspired to teach Pilates after having injured my back in a car accident 8 years previous, before and not being able to walk for over 3 months. Ending in having to have a partial discectomy or as we say spine surgery.
Having done Pilates for 5 years prior to having the surgery , Pilates allowed me to walk for those 5 years and maintain my spine to some degree. Pilates gave me a very strong mind, core and body which aided in my recovery. An hour after surgery due to my strong core I was up and walking to the bathroom on my own which I had not done in 3 months.After my recovery Pilates aided me in returning to something that I found I really loved, with the backing of my family. I went ahead to study to be a pilates instructor which has given me great joy in being able to pass on my knowledge and experience and aiding people in the healing of their own bodies. I am always furthering my education through my mentors in America.
