About

After qualifying with distinction in 2000 under The Pilates Foundation, I remained in London working for many recognised personalities in the holistic world, including Nish Joshi of The Joshi Clinic Harley Street with its celebrity clientele.

I studied and worked for James D’Silva and qualified in his Garuda method.

I also worked with Jay Grimes as well as the late Ron Fletcher, both of whom were taught by Joseph Pilates himself.  Also Peter Fiasca, Siri Galliano, Kathi Ross-Nash and Dorothee Vandewalle, all of whom left me inspired to further my knowledge of the pure classical forms of Joseph Pilates method. During this period I was first introduced to the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® which soon became my passion.

I began to study abroad with the renowned Juliu Horvath, the creator of the GYROTONIC® method and I regularly travel to immerse myself in all aspects of GYROTONIC® exercise.

In true GYROTONIC® style, to be surrounded by nature, I have relocated to a new spacious countryside studio specialising in the GYROTONIC® Method. I am starting a magical new journey and leaving behind The Pilates Studio in Norwich, which I founded and ran successfully for fourteen years (2002-2016), to a place of tranquility.

The benefits of GYROTONIC® exercise are evident in all pursuits. My love of all things equine originally stemmed from my husband.  I am now a keen show jumper myself and love the challenge horses give you.  Horses read everything in your body and I enjoy transferring my movement knowledge when I ride.  The tiniest imbalance in your body shows in your horse and equestrians I teach have found the GYROTONIC® method extremely effective.

GYROTONIC® Method

The GYROTONIC® method, and the GYROKINESIS® method, the equipment-free alternative to GYROTONIC® exercise – also known as ‘yoga for dancers’, is Juliu Horvath’s unique exercise system. GYROTONIC® EXPANSION SYSTEM® is designed around the human body utilising weights, pulleys and wheels to create a wide range of spherical movement which stretches and strengthens the entire body. All the equipment is highly adjustable and can be customised to fit each persons unique physique and ability. The GYROTONIC® methodology is an unique energetic exercise system, offering similar benefits to those derived from dance, swimming, martial arts and yoga. The system awakens the body through undulating motions that heals in rhythmical movements incorporating the whole body through muscular, skeletal and cardiovascular stimulation.

GYROTONIC® exercise benefits:

  • Stimulates blood circulation, lymphatic fluids and energy
  • Improves skeletal alignment, flexibility and elasticity
  • Joint mobility and articulation
  • Therapeutically supports rehabilitation following injuries
  • Strong, lean muscles
  • Emphasising motion, breath, rhythm and flow
  • Promotes a feeling of well being and physical regeneration

The Studio has three GYROTONIC® Pulley Towers, a Jumping Stretch Board (JSB), Leg Extension Unit and Archway, all of which are specialised GYROTONIC® equipment.

PILATES

Pilates is an exercise system developed in the 1920’s by Joseph Pilates (1880-1967) and is suitable for men and women of all ages and abilities.

The Pilates equipment is a fusion of authentic custom made apparatus by Gratz (manufacturer of Pilates equipment since 1929 in New York City) and is especially designed using spring resistance to develop core and full body strength. The technique has been invaluable to professional dancers and athletes to enhance structural fitness and avoid possible injury.

Pilates benefits:

  • Remove inappropriate muscle tension and poor joint alignment.
  • Strengthen weak wasted muscles.
  • Restore skeletal stability and balance, thus releasing back pain.
  • Prevent further injury or degeneration.
  • Enhance the body’s quality of movement and function.
  • Co-ordination and balance
  • Mental stimulation
