The focus of my teaching is predominantly injury prevention and corrective technique of the Pilates method. That being said, I also like to keep the flow of the class, meaning that even though there are some detailed explanations, there is still plenty of movement to eliminate stagnation. I recommend daily practice for those who require rehabilitation, but for those on maintenance I recommend a 2-3x per week practice (alongside other forms of movement – such as cardiovascular exercise).
My lessons are real time, allowing you to follow at home or while travelling and keep up with your fitness. I provide some techniques to “self -correct” meaning that you can check your own alignment while performing the moves. Equipment needed is mostly just a mat, and when additional props are used I mention how you could modify with regular household items. I look forward to help coaching you towards a healthier version of how you feel right now. Humans are designed to move in millions of movement cycles over more than 110 year lifespan! Living a sedentary lifestyle is the worst situation for a humanbeing – so let’s get you moving in a healthy a balanced way!
