Everything you need to know about your instructors

Here’s Sarah doing her fabulous unicorn impression – it has become a bit of a challenge to see which pics I can get away with and for how long before she spots ’em 😀

I am not naturally an active person I would much prefer being curled up on the couch watching a film, however this is a sure way to guarantee my hips and/or knees won’t make it to old age.

I believe our bodies require natural movements i.e. Movements found in nature and lots of them all day everyday to to give stimulation to our cells and to maintain optimum health.

After working in a fairly sedentary profession for 20 years I started to notice there were certain movements I had lost somewhere along the way. This sparked my interest in movement. I found Pilates, decided that teaching movement was what I was actually wanted to be doing and decided to train initially as a Pilates teacher. I now teach Pilates, Restorative Exercise and Hatha Yoga with alignment and restorative influences. I am also blessed to now train and assess new Pilates Teachers under Active IQ and Inner Power Pilates Teacher Training LTD.

I am a big believer in lifelong learning and constantly seek to improve my knowledge and understanding from a wide range of sources, all with a similar theme of living a healthy, happy, balanced life. I am hoping that by incorporating different movement practices into my sessions will enable me to become a more well rounded holistic movement teacher. My intention has always been to help other people, and empower them to take charge of their own bodies and futures.

I believe many of our modern diseases are caused through our unhealthy sedentary lifestyle and poor food choices unfortunately when the culture around you tells you everyone else is doing the same you accept it as normal when it’s far from it. I want to challenge the beliefs of our culture one barefoot step at a time.
