I have over 20 years experience in working with my body, developing a broad knowledge of anatomy and sports science. I have further developed my skills by training with some of the best instructors world wide.
Regular Classes include Aerial yoga , Trigger point pilates and hula hoop.

I also offer 1:1 holistic personal training, working with you to develop your fitness levels whether you are recovering from injury, post natal or just want to get fit after time away and don't feel confident to join a group class.

I  run retreat days , wild swimming events and camps to inspire a connection with nature and others.

Aerial Yoga 

I trained with Jost Blomeyer one of the most experienced Aerial yoga teachers in Europe.

Aerial yoga is a blend of Yoga, Pilates and Aerial arts.

Using a loop of fabric rated for taking body weight , this flying fitness class enables you to stretch in a low impact way, builds strength and allows you to feel the joy of flying.
Benefits of Aerial yoga include better circulation, enhanced mood, improved balance, and coordination.

It can also help with back pain.

​Classes include stretches, core stability exercises, flips and tricks aswell as relaxation.
