The secret to coping with our emotions.

Why is it that we feel happy, inspired, excited and enthusiastic yet other times we feel angry, jealous, sad, overwhelmed and depressed??? We are all too quick to blame someone or something for the way we feel in life. As soon as we say: “I feel”, we give our power away. Easier said than done, [...]

Don’t wait for the approval of others to change

Don’t wait for the approval of others to change. This thinking and belief system comes from the archetype ‘the eternal child’. We are conditioned to get the approval of schooling, parents, religion, governments and our peer group. People tell me they want to improve their movement, reduce their chronic pain, decrease inflammation, get stronger, improve [...]

Scones, Jam & clotted cream

Last weekend I indulged in some homemade scones, jam and clotted cream. It was earthy, appropriate and I have no regrets regardless what people might think. But this is the thing. It is in moderation, it’s simple sugars and simple carbs which is the most inflammatory. I was on holiday in Salisbury and wanted to [...]

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).

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 [...]

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 [...]
