Believe it or not, before I become a Pilates Instructor, I worked in engineering and also in the property market. I suffered from a long-term injury that prevented me from living my life. I was in constant fear of my body and the pain I might feel if I did something I enjoyed. I then discovered Pilates! After experiencing the positive changes, I wanted to share the power of Pilates with everyone!
I chose Peak Pilates for my education for their passion to deliver the very best experience, to be able to progress through the levels at my own pace and that they would not only teach me Pilates but teach me how to teach Pilates, coaching and unlocking my potential. I fell in love with Classical Pilates for its healing quality, for both mind and body. I no longer fear movement and I trust my body again. Joseph hit the nail right on the head "Change happens through movement, and movement heals."
My Peak Pilates experience taught me that, whilst we travel through our journey in practicing Classical Pilates, we will always make our way back round to being a beginner. Just as you master one thing, just around the corner awaits a new experience, a new exercise, a deeper connection, to learn, develop and master. It's wonderful! Becoming a Pilates Instructor and then my journey into a Master Instructor has changed my life. On the work side, I have my own successful Pilates business, which gives me the freedom to plan work around my family and get that needed family time we often miss out on. On a personal side, I get to work with my own body every day, finding new ways to trust it and feel happy in my own skin. Last but no way least, I get to work with such wonderful people every day, giving them the tools to help heal their bodies and fall in love with the method of Pilates, truly connecting Mind, Body, and Spirit and creating confident, inspiring Pilates Instructors across the country.
