I am passionate about helping you move better, move with ease and help you relieve pain. My classes are suitable if you live with a chronic illness, or disability or coming back to exercise after an injury or time off.
I remember when I started teaching Pilates & Yoga classes, I had a woman in her 50s with 2 knee replacements who wanted to get the best out of her new knees. To see her getting down on the floor to play with her granddaughter 8 years later and know that she would be able to get up, filled my heart with joy. She was still coming to class all those years later and sometimes brought her granddaughter along when she was on babysitting duties.
I have another woman who joined the class in her 60s because she was starting to develop an ‘old lady hump’. It was her daughter that told her she needed to come to class. At the end of the class, she was out the door like a shot. I didn’t think I would see her again after that first 4-week beginner’s course. 11+ years later, still attending class, still going skiing, standing tall and no sign of that hump!
One of my other long-time regulars has 2 hip replacements, arthritis, and osteoporosis… After both hip replacements, she was back at class 2 weeks after the surgery doing her physio exercises and adapted Pilates exercises. She now has full mobility and has a goal of doing 2 handstands* a day. The handstands are something she had always wanted to be able to do and wants to keep doing them and everything else she can, while she can.
*For insurance reasons I don’t endorse or teach her handstands – this is something she does on her own and often sends me photos which I celebrate and am inspired by her determination.
I regularly deliver courses for the MS Society Scotland and have a variety of abilities from wheelchair-bound to able-bodied with challenges. Helping the group reconnect with their bodies and improve their movement is what gets me out of bed in the mornings.
Also, I live with an inflammatory bowel disease called Crohn’s Disease and need to adapt my own movements to suit my needs and symptoms.

Who Are My Classes For?
Over the years I have worked (and still do work with) clients in Pilates & Yoga classes or 1:1 sessions to help rehabilitate from injury or surgery. I also help people who have had knee and/or hip replacements, scoliosis, osteoporosis, arthritis (rheumatoid, psoriatic and osteoarthritis), frozen shoulder, bad backs, bad knees, nerve damage, MS, Crohn’s (I have been given this diagnosis myself), hyper-mobile, recovering from broken limbs, or generally feeling old in their body…
Participating in Pilates & Yoga can be adapted for almost anyone. It doesn’t matter if you can’t get down on the floor, lie on your back, front, or side. I can give you options to do the exercises seated in a chair or standing up. Pilates and Yoga can be suitable for pretty much any participant.
The benefits of Pilates classes include; strength, balance, flexibility, moving your body in all the directions you can. Pilates classes are excellent for helping you improve your posture, strengthening and supporting your joints, helping you get more mobile and building confidence in your movement.
The benefits of Yoga: flexibility, balance, moving your body in all the directions you can, relaxation. Yoga classes are excellent for helping you notice your body, help free up unnecessary tension, move with curiosity, reconnecting to your breath and body.
