I believe that learning how the body moves and operates is a vital part of not only healing (if an injury is present) but also maintaining a healthy body and lifestyle, long term.
Therefore I am proud to be able to offer courses and workshops, bringing together my 14 years experience within the health and fitness industry.
They marry together the love of optimal movement through working as a Physical Therapist, along side professional sports teams, private clients and mentoring other professionals to understand the human body on a deeper level.
I am thrilled to announce that I have joined forces with the brilliant PilatesPT to bring an exciting new series of workshops now available Online!
Each workshop will focus on an area or particular issue we commonly come across as both instructors and clients. The workshops are aimed at fitness professionals and therapists and although a baseline knowledge of anatomy is beneficial, all are welcome!
The workshops are endorsed by PD:Approval and a two hour workshop will not only give you valuable tools and information, but also a REPs points.

How to Understand and Train the Pelvic Floor
The Mandarin Oriental,
This two hour workshop will cover how the pelvic floor and core stabilizers work together. It will also cover common issues resulting from a pelvic floor dysfunction, and the controversial Diastasis Recti.
Following an anatomical review of all the structures that work together to produce a strong lumbo-pelvic region, and help to heal pelvic floor issues, common exercises and cues will be visited and discussed. After this we will look at how common issues may be categorized and how each of them can link into one another, forming a potential cascade of events throughout the body

How to Develop the Glutes For Optimal Function and Postural Stability
This two hour workshop will cover all aspects of achieving optimum function of the glutes, understanding the anatomy and physiology of the myo-fascial attachments around the hip joint, and also understanding opposing muscles & muscle groups in the search for postural correction.
The workshop will teach you what happens, and what to look for, when one muscle is weak or down regulated. We will discuss the implications this might have on posture and then brainstorm ways to fix it.
All of this will be achieved by understanding the function of the glutes and how we can position joints and bodies differently to target different fibres of the same muscle.
