What has been your favourite Studio Pilates course to complete?

Reformer for sure! Reformer is my all time love, its so much fun and doesn’t feel like you’re working out at all! I loved the course and learning all the exercises, the face to face component was amazing! Loved meeting new people and Sammy made it fun and exciting!

 

How have you been using your Pilates skills since completing your instructor training?

I have been using my Pilates skills by starting my own small Pilates business, teaching dancers, friends and family. I have also been teaching at a local Reformer studio near me which I have absolutely loved!

 

What has been your greatest challenge as a Pilates instructor?

Working with injuries is always a challenge at first but I love seeing the progress made once sessions have started!

 

How has COVID-19 changed how you instruct?

When COVID-19 hit I actually decided to start Pilates training so that’s been a great outcome! Throughout COVID, I have switched to Zoom teaching and pre-recorded classes which my clients have been thriving through. It’s brought in new clients, some who have never done Pilates before but now love!

 

What is the one health or fitness related item that you can’t live without right now?

At the moment I cannot live without my Small Ball and Lululemon activewear.

 

What is your personal Pilates or exercise philosophy?

Get out of your own damn way.

 

What song or playlist is keeping you and your clients motivated in class right now?

A mixture of pop and classics.

 

What is your favourite exercise to instruct right now and why?

Anything to do with the Sliders or Small Ball as it challenges all my clients from beginners to advanced!

Scooter Lunges

 

How do you prioritise or find time for your own Pilates practice?

I love it so much, I don’t consider it a chore and something that makes my day complete.

 

What is the greatest tip you could give another Pilates instructor?

Just do it, you won’t regret anything! Be you and smile, it’s so much fun.
