I have been practising yoga since my teens, in the year 2000 I started attending Ashtanga Yoga classes, which gave me a more advanced practice.
I completed an Ashtanga yoga teacher training course at the start of 2016, then a Hatha yoga teacher training course at the start of 2017.
The yoga classes are Ashtanga based with some Hatha yoga postures (asanas), which gives a gentler Ashtanga yoga, but still retains the Ashtanga flow. The classes consist of sun salutations, standing asanas, seated asanas and finishing asanas, with Hatha yoga asanas, making the class more varied. The aim is to increase body and breath awareness, strength, stamina, flexibility, balance and much more. Variations and modifications are given to suit most people’s capabilities.
I have over 20 years’ experience in the fitness industry, after a career change I studied part time for 2 years at college to become a fitness instructor. I then moved into a role as a Studio coordinator & Fitness Manager.
Over the last 7 years at Premier Pilates and further studying participating in various courses and workshops I now teach a variety of Fitness Classes, Spinning, Kettlercise, Jumping Fitness, HITT and Power Hoop.
Pilates is my number one passion which I trained for when pregnant with my first child for the mind body focus in my life. I teach Mat and Barre Pilates, Mature stretching classes and Piyo (which is a combination of Pilates and Yoga) and a new addition to the studio, which I absolutely love.
I have been a Pilates and Fitness Instructor for the last 2 years. However, I have been involved in fitness all my adult life.
I came to Pilates about 5 years ago myself when I started to feel the effects of years of high impact cardio exercise on my body. I quickly felt the benefits of Pilates through taking classes at the studio, at the same time I was at a cross roads in my previous career, there was an opening for an instructor, so I changed my passion into a career, and trained as a Pilates Instructor and Level 2 Fitness Instructor.
I teach Pilates classes (Beginners & Intermediate Level), Barre Concept (a mix of Pilates, Yoga, Ballet & Body Conditioning), a Chair Class (aimed at mobility challenged clients) and Low Impact Cardio Classes.
After 30 years in the Police, and a lifetime passion for fitness, I changed my career to train as a Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer (level 3) and a Pilates Instructor (level 2). This experience has taught me that everyone can realise the goals they set themselves if they truly want to achieve them. My passion is helping everyone make progress towards their personal goals, however large or small that goal may be.
I teach Spinning, Kettlercise, Jumping Fitness,Step,Boxercise and Pilates for men and women.
Exercise I believe should play a part in everyone’s life, for a huge number of reasons. This doesn’t have to be a daunting process, but rather an enjoyable part of your life.
Pilates is a strengthening programme for all levels of fitness. It is great as a challenging workout for the fitness enthusiast or to aid in recovery from surgery or injury. Pilates is also the perfect exercise regime for pre and post-natal women. It helps build overall strength by focusing on strong abdominal and core stability. Regular practise can help alleviate many different ailments such as back pain, headaches, neck and shoulder tension to name just a few.
At Premier Pilates we offer mat work and equipment classes at affordable prices. Class sizes are kept small, ensuring you receive the personal attention you require from our fully qualified instructors.
Vinyasa yoga is a discipline that utilises posture and breathing techniques. This form of yoga offers a range of health benefits to those who practice yoga, as it encompasses all areas of mind and body.
Vinyasa yoga is often faster paced, and the postures are linked together in a series of movements that are synchronised with the breath, with emphasis being placed on the transition in and out of the postures.
Low Impact, High Intensity Interval Training Class
The exercises are low impact, performed with a high level of intensity. Modifications and options are given, exercises are performed for short periods with short rest intervals. Designed to offer all the benefits of HIIT class with less risk of injury and also with minimum stress on the joints.
This class will challenge your body like never before. High-Intensity workout studio classes provide a contagious and supportive energy that will challenge your physical limits and lift your mood to your most positive potential.
Our ever-changing classes and one-of-a-kind technique will work your muscles, make your heart pump with every workout. The results are addictive. A great class for all.
Pilates on the Barre
Barre Pilates classes are simply ballet-inspired incorporating a ballet barre and maybe some plies here and there into the workout. Barre classes mix elements of Pilates, dance, yoga and functional training. In each energising and targeted workout, you will use the barre and exercise equipment such as mini-balls and small hand weights to sculpt, slim and stretch your entire body.
The low impact, total body workout lifts the butt, tones the thighs, flattens the abs and sculpts the arms, whilst protecting the joints. Posture, flexibility, stamina and core strength improve. The result is a body that is realigned.
Power hooping is very popular, not only is it fun,
power hoops have been proven to help define the waist.
Research has shown that users can lose up to three inches from the waist in only six weeks by practicing for just 15 minutes a day, five days a week. With results like that no wonder the classes are springing up in fitness studios.
Step Aerobics is a form of exercise that involves stepping up and down onto a stationary block. This is a high intensity exercise that combines cardio with weight training providing a great workout.
Step aerobics use a specialised stepping block. There are a vast variety of step aerobic exercises that you can do including basic steps, the tap up, the grapevine, the repeater, corner to corner, and the turn step. Step classes are great for everyone so why not give it a try.
Stretching stabilises the body’s natural balance and posture, and aligns the joints leading to better co-ordination. Stretching also increases blood flow which gets the heart pumping in a gentle relaxed way. This is a great class for the mature retired or semi retired
Kettlercise is a brand new fitness class that incorporates the use of kettle bell training in a friendly group atmosphere. Kettlercise is carried out using light weights and is set out in a nonstop routine that will work every single muscle in your body to ensure you melt away fat, tone up, improve core stability and dramatically improve endurance.
It is effectively a three in one workout incorporating cardio, weight training and core training.
This class is unrivalled when it comes to producing results and whatever your current fitness level or ability you will be sure to find Kettlercise fun yet challenging.
Spinning classes see participants exercising on specially designed stationary bikes with variable resistance. Because you are exercising with others and being pushed by a dedicated instructor, it really is an intense workout, and once the class starts the momentum never lets up. You will be swept along by the beat of the music and the buzz in the room.
Jumping is a dynamic fitness training system, conducted on specially developed Jumping PROFI trampolines.
Jumping was born of the idea of developing a training program that would considerably strengthen body and mind while keeping fun in mind.
The basis of Jumping is a combination of fast and slow jumps, variations of traditional aerobic steps, dynamic sprints and “power sports” elements.
The complexity of the exercises guarantees that your whole body will be strengthened.
Jumping is three times more effective than jogging. This is due to the constant gravitational changes, which involve more than 400 muscles being tightened and relaxed at the same time.
