My studio is set in a relaxed and friendly home environment.

I teach private (one to one) and shared sessions (two to one), tailored to individual needs. A shared session is the same a private (one to one) session except I work with two people. The equipment incorporates apparatus and matwork exercises. They are performed on Pilates apparatus such a reformer, tower, wanda chair and arc barrels.

The apparatus uses spring loaded resistance, gravity and movement to support or challenge the body.
