Training and qualifications

I qualified as a matwork Pilates teacher in February 2004 having trained with the Body Control Pilates Association. The association is committed to setting high standards within the industry and was one of the UK’s first training providers to have its course approved as meeting the new national standard for Pilates.

All members commit to a rigorous programme of continuous professional development and since qualifying I have undertaken the following courses:

  • intermediate matwork
  • Pilates and osteoporosis (1 and 2)
  • matwork plus
  • toning circles
  • standing Pilates
  • regular development weekends including lectures and practical workshops

I am listed on the Register of Exercise Professionals as a Level 3 Advanced Pilates Instructor.

I qualified in March 2008 with Nordic Walking UK having successfully completed the Instructor Course in accordance with INWA (International Nordic Walking Association) standards, including the additional Nordic Walking UK module, Conducting Safe Exercise Sessions Outdoors.

As a qualified Body Control Pilates instructor, I have also been able to bring my expertise from this field into my Nordic Walking instruction, developing clients’ awareness of core stability and introducing standing exercises and stretches from the Body Control Pilates repertoire.

I am a qualified First Aider – ‘Activity First Aid’ – St John Ambulance.
