I have taught a combination of training and movement practices for over 15 years and have a unique combination of skills and knowledge, which I draw on to teach students how to investigate and understand more about their own bodies, paying attention to detail and provoking curiosity.
In the past I have taught trapeze, acrobatic balancing, stilt walking, tight wire walking and theatre at the National Centre for Circus Arts. Over time, as my artistic and choreographic practice has developed, my interest has shifted into the study of the body in movement, so that now my focus is on teaching transferrable movement practices that support all types of training and benefit all bodies.
I am a qualified Pilates and Feldenkrais® teacher, and teach group classes in Pilates and Awareness Through Movement®, and private, 1:1 hands-on classes in Functional Integration®. I also teach circus conditioning, including flexibility and handstand, as well as creative movement, movement in performance, devising and movement analysis.
I teach how to train and help students better understand their own bodies.
In the last few years I have been a visiting tutor, teaching movement for actors, at Royal Central School of Speech and Drama (BA Collaborative and Devised Theatre) and Guildhall School of Music and Drama (BA and MA Acting). I teach private and public classes, courses and workshops in London and Online. Recent workshops and Master Classes include commissions from Saint Margaret’s House, My Local Pilates, Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance and fundraisers for Humans for Rights Network, as well as a number of private workshops in both corporate and social sectors. I have a growing amount of online audio and video resources available here on the website, on instagram, and via my youtube channel.
Body positive, sex positive and trauma informed, I have years of experience in creating safe and inclusive spaces and continue to undertake regular professional development in equality, diversity and inclusion, intimacy training, anti-racist training, autism training and working with people with special emotional, social and behavioural needs. In 2022 I am excited to begin a training programme with Inclusive Employers which will enable me to develop and facilitate my own creative and accessible Diversity, Equity & Inclusion trainings in future.
