I am a London-based Barre, Pilates and Dance Fitness instructor. My background is in the Brazilian martial art of Capoeira, Athletics and choreographing dance theatre. A spinal injury taught me to break down the mechanics of movement for a mindful practice.
My determination to pursue a career in fitness is inspired by working with people to progress and achieve personal goals. My work in community theatre has encouraged me to make each class a safe space people feel they can have fun and express themselves.
I create my classes with the awareness that everyone is different and have found empowerment through alignment and learning to embrace physical change. Expect to challenge endurance, strength and stability. My goal is to use rhythm and fluidity to improve skills, promote longevity and functional movement in everyday life.
I studied Drama: Theatre, Film and Television at the University of Bristol and enjoy creating art, writing poetry and scripts. After working in senior roles as an Audio-Visual engineer at venues such as the Royal Academy of Arts. I love using music and creating movement and sequences, working deep into muscles that can be difficult to target.
