Who Am I?
Well I guess I’m a normal person! I’m not a slim, unrealistically bendy or a muscle defined sportswoman but have a normal female body which like anybody, has good days and bad days. My career so far has been interesting and varied, including work as a nurse, lecturer and Vice Consul working for the Foreign Office.
Having chosen Anglesey as home and following the traumatic renovation of our house, I needed a new challenge. This gave me an opportunity to pursue one of my passions so I decided to train as a Modern Pilates teacher. (Couldn’t find any courses on chocolate or wine!).
I have been practicing Pilates for over 20 years and it has helped me in so many ways both with conditioning my body, managing stress and keeping me sane! As I am getting older various bits and parts of my body were starting to creak and not behaving as I would like. While Pilates was helping both myself and my clients, I felt there was still something missing.
After extensive research I found The MELT Method, created by a truly inspirational lady called Sue Hitzman. I have travelled to the USA to attend trainings, and truly learn this method which really is the missing link to a healthy body.
The unique blend of MELT and Pilates has totally transformed my body I am now fitter and healthier than I have been for years, totally strong in both mind and body.
Guiding my clients to change their lives is the best job ever!
