‘If no one gives you a medal… design your own.’ Billy Connolly

What story are we holding onto…. In all my 30 years plus of teaching I have encountered many stories. This is the thing we all have a story, whether it’s physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. The danger is when we hold onto that story and let it rule our lives by the decisions that we [...]

The time may never be right

There will never be a right time….. It’s always the way isn’t, there will never be a right time, to move to a new house, change jobs, finish a relationship, start a new hobby, take up a sport, start that healthy eating programme, tackle that niggling injury, change your body, give up smoking, stop drinking, [...]

My life is my own

Have you seen the TV cult show ‘The Prisoner’??? I have come to Portmerion in Wales this weekend. A beautiful village full of flora and fauna, with some amazing buildings and history. Patrick McGoogan the star of the show was held captive physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally in the village and by the people of [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Go for it in 2019- what are you waiting for?

It is vital to take action on your goals in life, rather than just daydreaming about them. In my 25+ years as a therapist, coach and movement teacher, it has always been important to me to continually keep learning and growing. I have just completed a two week intensive on the central nervous system and [...]

‘You will not be punished for your anger, you will by punished your anger’

Have you heard the terms 'Green with envy', 'Angry liver'.  Anger and frustration are key emotions connected to the liver. Feelings of anger plague us all the time. We are all capable of flying off the handle, saying things we didn't mean or doing things out of character. Our real emotions lie below the surface [...]

The conscious & unconscious dialogue we have with ourselves

We all hear voices, it's true, we do. Every time i run up a hill i hear a little voice telling me how tough it is, to slow down or stop and give up. I resist the voices and keep going. We constantly have a conscious and unconscious dialogue with ourselves.  According to Deepak Chopra [...]

I have actually seen literature talking about five, six, seven and eight diaphragms.They come together in all movement particularly on inhalation and exhalation when the pressure is transmitted through [...]
