Through my company PhoeNix I offer classes and events in the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley.

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.

Classes and events currently available- 

Trigger Point Pilates 

 I trained with Lydia Campbell who created Trigger Point Pilates.

A Pilates based Myofascia Trigger Point body work system.

In class we start by gently mobilising the body, learning how to stay in good alignment and how to connect breath to each exercise. Using compression, movement and dynamic stretch you will journey through a system to release the body's fascia, trigger point by trigger point. During the class you will use foam rollers, small spiky myofascial release balls, midi sized pilates balls and stretch bands. Most of the class is spent on an exercise mat.
The training method helps alleviate chronic pain conditions and constant muscular tightness, undoing muscular restrictions and enhances functional movement. At the end of a class one feels light, lengthened and able to move with total ease, releasing the body from inside to out.

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.
