There are many reasons for looking after your mind and body with exercise, including stress reduction, better posture, balanced strength and flexibility, increased muscle tone and bone density, greater endurance, reduced back pain and improved body awareness, balance and coordination. My own Pilates and yoga practice has helped me through 8 marathons, one pregnancy and many years of ballet classes.

I currently teach group classes at a number of London studios as well as individual sessions in SW London.  I've had the pleasure of working with everyone from Olympic athletes and professional dancers to friends, neighbours and people in my local community. 

I have contributed to "Runner's World", "Running Free, "Yoga Magazine," "Health and Fitness" and "Zest" magazine and have been featured in London's "Evening Standard", "The Telegraph", New Zealand's "Fitness Life" Sweden's "Fitness" magazine, "Women's Running", Women's Fitness", "Men's Running", "Yoga & Health", "The Metro", "Harper's Bazaar" and "The Financial Times".

I have also contributed to three books - "Triathlon Made Easy" by Zoe McDonald and Lisa Buckingham,  "Real Women Run" by Sam Murphy and "Everyone Try Yoga" by Victoria Woodhall and Jonathan Sattin.
