I originally started practicing Pilates in the 1990’s when I lived and worked in London - it wasn't love at my first class - it took a few months before I was convinced! Since then it has become part of my daily and weekly routines. Pilates has been good to me - both my mind and my body. It has helped keep me balanced, strong and flexible in both my work and hobbies including running, swimming, cycling, hillwalking, golf, gardening and sofa days, and growing older days!
I have taught over 1500 clients in the past 7 years in Donegal, Leitrim, Fermanagh, Tyrone, and Sligo. This has been mainly Mat Pilates, but also includes Reformer Pilates, and Barre Pilates. I am the only instructor offering group Reformer Pilates, and Barre Pilates in the South Donegal area.
I have an Advanced Diploma in Pilates from the National Training Centre Dublin, and have trained in reformer Pilates at the National Pilates Centre Dublin, and hold a Diploma in Exercise Referral from the Platinum Training Institute Belfast.
I regularly update my knowledge and have recently completed the Living Well with Arthritis course organised by Arthritis Ireland, the Cara Inclusive Fitness Training, Self Myofacial Release Course at the Platinum Training Institute Belfast, and Covid 19 safety procedures in an exercise setting course .
