I trained at London Contemporary Dance School and, with the opening of Scotland's first Pilates Studio in 1990, worked through an apprenticeship in Pilates with Jane Paris, before setting up my own studio in 1998.
Over the years, my study of the Pilates Method has grown and developed. While continuing my studies of Pilates, my exploration of movement has led me to study The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® which I have taught to Pre-Trainer level and Scaravelli inspired Yoga. I have also studied Cranio-Sacral Therapy with the Upledger Institute, have completed Levels 1 & 2 with the Bach Centre and completed a Diploma in Herbology at the Royal Botanics in Edinburgh in 2010.
I set up a Teacher Training programme in 1998. This programme has developed over the years and now encompasses a comprehensive Matwork Programme, Equipment Training and a Post Graduate Workshop Programme. The entire training includes the pre-requisite amount of necessary anatomy and all the obvious repertoire information but maintains a large element of all my original training: that is, it favours practical experience, invention and a healthy attitude to enquiry!
