I have been a professional ballet and contemporary dancer for 20 years.
Pilates has helped me to overcome many injuries that I have had during my career.
My appreciation for Pilates led me to train with the Body Art Science International (BASI) and become a qualified Pilates Instructor. I am also fully qualified machinery Pilates instructor and I obtained a ‘Spinal Surgery Pilates’ and a 'Ante and Post Natal’ qualification with APPI (The Australian Physiotherapy & Pilates Institute).
With years of experience I have build up a close relationship with NHS, private consultants, physiotherapy practices who have trustily referred patients to the studio in order to receive a tailored programme so patients could overcome certain clinical conditions and injuries.
I also believe that through centring, concentration, control, precision and breathing, the entire body learns how to use every muscle group evenly without over straining it. This is one of the reasons so many elite athletes have introduced Pilates into their daily fitness regime.
The Reformer, Tower and Pilates chair provide maximum versatility to your programme by transitioning into many form of exercises which will tailor the clients exercise plan.
This popular class is based on the belief that the Reformer Machine helps achieving new goals and develop new skills of flexibility, strength, stability whilst addressing specific conditions or injuries. This equipment can help you directing the movement but at the same time challenge you by increasing the springs' tensions. All of the classes at Pilates 77 attempt to coordinate breathing and physical movement, improve focus and concentration, regaining control of their body and mind with the help of the pilates equipments.
