Since having my two children, I have found Pilates to be the perfect, safe and effective body conditioner.

I have a level three Industry Award & Diploma in Teaching Pilates. I have trained in Pilates for Spinal surgeries, Reformer, Spring Wall and High Intensity Pilates matwork. Alongside this I have a qualification in nutrition and Pelvic Floor health and exercise from Burrell Education. I am fully qualified in deep and tissue massage therapy to level 4 and Lymphatic massage which is wonderfully relaxing and gentle treatment for anybody.

Massage is the perfect accompaniment to your exercise whether that be Pilates, cycling, running or sports. Or perhaps you would simply like some help to relieve the pain of tight and sore muscles in your back, neck and shoulders due to postural issues or stress.

I like to tailor massage therapy to the individual –together we can devise a plan to target your personal goals.

I first tried yoga in 1992 just before my eldest daughter was born.  It was very different to the aerobics of the day but, after three more children, I found it was yoga I kept going back to and not my Jane Fonda videos!

I qualified as a teacher in 2013.  My style is gentle but challenges you to maximise your own range of movement and reconnect with every part of your body from the feet up whilst at the same time calming the ‘monkey mind’.

Yoga has given me strength, flexibility, improved balance and mental equilibrium – especially when thrown by life’s challenges.  I feel this ancient practise is more relevant than ever before in our chaotic time.

I love the friendly, supportive community Kate has created here at Fitskool and whether you’re intrigued to try yoga for the first time or wish to deepen an existing practise, I really look forward to welcoming you to class.

My yoga mat is my sanctuary, come and find yours.
