She trained as a dancer, specialising in Contemporary Dance and in this setting her natural curiosity and love of movement led her to develop an increased interest in the role that movement plays in relation to the body and mind. She discovered movement as a tool for healing using it with her clients to facilitate healthier, more aligned and fluid ways to move.
She qualified as a Pilates Master – and a Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga teacher and used these methodologies to design unique programs to fit the individual’s needs.
Her natural curiosity and creativity fostered a desire to study further and she is now a highly skilled and professional qualified Somatic Movement Coach.
