I have worked in the Women’s Wellness industry for over 15 years. My experience first began when I attained my Bachelors degree in Movement Science and continued over the next 9 years when I trained and worked with the International Pilates Institute, KX Wellness and The Life Centre in London as well as The Centre of Women’s fitness with Carolyne Anthony in America.

I have had the joy and immense benefit of working alongside great mentor’s and specialists in the field of Women’s Wellness and Health; from doctors, physiotherapists, movement specialists and much must be said of the many moms and women that have taught and inspired me the most.

You will be benefiting from all these wonderful people as you follow the programme designed for all life stages, from Pregnancy, Post-baby, All Women and Menopause.

The Barre Concept has been in America and London for years and it blends Pilates with the Ballet Barre and Core Ball – when I tried my first class I fell in love with it immediately as it made me work muscles that I knew all women love to work – their bottom, tummy and arms!

Being a mother, wife and step mom to a house full of boys adds to my love of working with women.

It is my personal passion to create a place that embraces all women – a third place after home and work where you can feel balanced in your mind, body and ultimately in your life.

Women are the centre of their homes, the core and heart of every family and finding time for themselves is vital to a balanced and whole lifestyle.

Whether you are pregnant, just had a baby, going through fertility or entering menopause – our bodies have to go through so much and as women and we need each other and a place where we can feel supported.

My centre, called ‘The Place for women’ is the culmination of my journey to offer women a place that offers you all of this.

I love every minute of my work and the changes I see in the lives of women that attend the classes.

I hope that you will too and will join me on this life changing journey.
