Why pay more for Pilates apparatus???

How much is your health worth to you?  The movement methodology of equipment-based Pilates is not one that can easily afford to be discounted. There are very few uniquely accredited movement systems in Pilates (classical, contemporary or hybrid) that are respected and applauded in the Pilates community.  These methods require intense training programs with a [...]

“Only those who can attempt the absurd, can achieve the impossible” – Albert Einstein

I get so many enquiries for everything and anything from chronic pain and weight loss to business and mentoring advice. When clients attend my studios and don’t get the results they wish to see, it”s always because they are not changing their behaviour, habits and belief systems outside the studio. I never just throw anyone [...]

Good health begins with you

Life is all about cycles of birth and death. In the last year, we’ve gone from a population of: 67,886,011 in 2020, to 68,142,752 in 2021(https://www.worldometers.info/world.../uk-population/).

Banish your backpain forever

Banish your backpain forever If you are aged 40–55 years old and have had chronic back pain for longer than one year.

Self doubt, fear & critical thinking

Twenty twenty may have left us with wounds that are hard to shrug off, experiencing emotions such as grief, sadness, anger and frustration. However I have to ask you, when have you learnt more in life, would that be in suffering or in happiness? My experience is that great opportunities and self development can come [...]

Therapists – “Don’t hide your light under a bushel”

Your services are much needed as the world begins to re-open and resume business. You are a key worker, whether you [...]

Creating stability & resilience in times of crisis

Everyone is trying to work their way through life the best as they can. There is no wrong or right and we are all quick to judge others. When we judge, gossip, speak and communicate hurtfully of others it is actually a mirror reflection of how we feel and behave to ourselves. This behaviour comes [...]

Is there a right way to move?

So we all move in different ways. This is due to multiple factors including genes, environment, conditioning, experience, flexibility, strength, stability, balance and the state of the nervous system that day. "If its not broke, don't fix it" - I disagree with this statement. The better the condition of the human body, the better the [...]

Does isolation exist in the body?

When we look at traditional anatomy books, pictures or images, we are seeing someones interpretation of what's important to them after dissecting, so they take charge of what's worth cutting away and what's worth keeping. All anatomy images when placed on exercises or marketed in movement/treatment are merely a perception of the authors view of [...]
