I am a Level 3 Pilates Instructor working in the Bromley/Orpington area, mainly with the over 50s many of whom suffer various degrees of back and neck pain. I also hold a certificate for Level 3 Exercise Referral which means that GPs could have referred clients to me but as I am so very busy as it is I havent registered with any GP.
On top of the above qualifications I am also qualified under the National Academy of Sport Medicine as a Corrective Exercise Specialist and a Senior Fitness Specialist.
I myself began using Pilates after suffering back and neck pains including repeated visits to Chiropractors costing me £250-£300 per a month. I was advised to take Pilates classes and noticed an improvement after only six sessions. This was my inspiration to teach Pilates so that I could help others benefit. In less than six months I moved from living with constant pain – taking pain-killers – to no pain and no pain-killers. I even started taking dance classes which involved very demanding physical strength and endurance.
I constantly strive to improve my knowledge to deal with the array of common problems people suffer from, such as: sciatica, frozen shoulder, shoulder impingement, lower back aches, restricted movement in the neck and hips etc. The results have been amazing.
