Pilates Coach & Teacher Trainer

Meet Dawn

Advanced Pilates Teacher/Trainer & Exercise Therapist

My career in the fitness industry began in 1992...yes, all the way back then!


I came from a dance background with a whole passion for music and movement, so it won't be any surprise to hear that I started out in lycra leggings, leotard and a headband, Jane Fonda was my inspiration, and so my career began.


I have trained in many modalities as the years have gone on, mostly as I entered a new phase of my life and always because I would regularly find another way that I enjoyed moving.  It's a cliche but "if you don't move it, you lose it" and this is exactly what I did NOT want to do.


So with a career now spanning over 28 years I have lots to offer including inspiration and motivation, in my opinion the most important things to have in sustaining a mobile, healthy body.  There are a lot of trainers out there to choose from but choose you must.  If it's experience (I have lots of this), qualifications (I have lots of those too), energy and the desire to get you going and keep you on track (my clients will tell you I have an abundance of this) then I'm the trainer for you!​

Having 'hung up my lycra' I now teach a more mindful practice through yoga and my own personal favourite, Pilates. I have taught as young as 3 and as old as 96. The important thing is not your age but your willingness or ability to move. 


Through Exercise Therapy I can help you retrain muscles your body had forgotten you have, that may now be causing you pain or strain in your breath, focus and centering I can guide you to release stress and anxiety and with practice at home you can learn to use this amazing tool to create space for yourself, to sleep better, feel better and move better.


Pilates, as I'm sure you know is focused on movement of the entire body with control that concentrates on strengthening the core from the centre outwards. It's not just about working your abdominals (enter the yawn) but about controlling the movement in a very precise way that will encourage stability and balance. This is why it is one of the best modalities of movement, in my opinion, that suits everyone from personal to professional. Many top sportsmen use Pilates in their training programs which seems the perfect opportunity to drop in that I have personally trained a pro England rugby player (no I won't name him here, you will have to trust me).


So, if you have kindly read this far I hope you will have gained a better idea of who I am and what I expect, oh wait, I didn't tell you that part (oops)...well I train all of my clients on the understanding that they will get a home practice included with their 1:1 session and yes, I expect them to do it, in fact if you don't do it we can't train, it's as simple as that!  Your commitment to both yourself and to your personally designed program is key to your success.
