I qualified in teaching Exercise to Music in 1997 after enjoying many classes as a participant. I've worked in Trafford leisure centres since 2004. I've always been interested in core strength, so decided to train as a Pilates instructor in 2015. I'm also qualified to teach fitness to older adults, children and people who've been referred to exercise by their GP.

I've been practising Yoga since 1999 and loved how calm I felt and how great my body felt after a class. So after the birth of my second child I undertook an intense two-year teacher training course with the Iyengar Yoga Association and qualified to teach in 2008. Since then I have loved watching people in my classes transform through Yoga.
I've danced all my life as a hobby and became involved with dancing tuition for wellbeing in 2009, when I taught classes aiding individuals to overcome anxiety and depression. I went on to become qualified as a Fitsteps instructor in 2014, and love to teach Ballroom and Latin American dancing to couples and individuals as a way of exercising whilst having fun.
