Movement and biomechanics have been a lifelong interest for me. Prior to graduating as an osteopath in 2007 from the British School of Osteopathy, I was a professional dancer. I hold two teaching qualifications with Distinction with the I.S.T.D- the world’s leading dance examination society and have over a decade of ballet and modern dance teaching experience which has proven invaluable when instructing Pilates and rehabilitation programs to patients, students and clients. My postgraduate training has been driven by the needs of my patients and students but focused on the benefits of evidence-based therapy. Consequently, I now use a combination of clinically modified Pilates and osteopathic techniques.
I founded my Osteopathic clinic in 2010 in Leytonstone where I also run courses of Pilates classes for my local community. Alignment, posture, core stability and freedom of movement are the key focal points in my classes, drawing on my experience in movement and clinical studies to promote the relationship between mobility and stability. My experience has taught me that these fundamentals are the basis for musculoskeletal health.
