The strongest trees grow in the strongest winds

If you want to make progress in life you need to change your perception and reaction. Everything happens for me to improve my growth and contribution or everything happens to me (victim archetype). If you want your family and friends to change, you need to change yourself first. We are always progressing through pain and [...]

Don’t leave your body to hope and chance

Any success in your life is built on rituals and habitual patterns. Without a plan or end game, there is no goal to be disciplined for. Without a vision of the future we will return to the past, which tends to be full of bad habits and mistakes. The things we do every day are [...]

A studio of equality

I am delighted and proud that my actions in the last 30 years of teaching supports equality, union and non-judgment.  Both studios follow the 2010 discrimination act. If you pop by you will find clients with all sorts of conditions, diseases and beliefs.  When we do Pilates, we become one. As the world becomes more [...]

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 [...]

Being your true own authentic self

Very few of us feel comfortable being our authentic self because we don’t see ourselves as remarkable. We don’t realize that our authenticity is the one thing (more than anything) that makes us unique. As Shakespeare said in his play Hamlet paraphrasing: "Be true to thou self otherwise thou cannot trust another man”. There [...]

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 [...]

Bare feet – Are these disappearing? Part 1

You may of seen me wearing these mad chicken type shoes in class. They are vibram five fingers . I have not seen many people wearing them. We are all sold trainers constantly by the media. We are shown the benefits of wearing so many of these shock absorbing shoes, usually sponsored medical papers by [...]

Why quick fixes do not work – There is no substitute for doing the work

Quick fixes don't work in the body. Most of us don't want to hear this, but; there really are no quick fixes or short cuts to optimal health and movement  (or to anything else worthwhile, for that matter). The road to bettering ourselves is a long continous one that requires time, commitment and self discipline. I always [...]

Kyphosis, round shoulders and dowagers hump

Kyphosis, round shoulders does not necessarily mean you have fractures in the thoracic vertebrae. Sometimes these habits go all the way back to childhood when you sat slumped in your school desk or on the couch. Or you might have developed a slouching posture because you grew taller than your peers at an early age, [...]
